Re: 2020 Rd 8 V Dragons: Game Day

Pretty uninspiring second half. Not feeling any more confident about our prospects based on that.

Re: Curtis Scott signs with Canberra Raiders to end 2023

Rapana is here because even though he has lost pace, he is still an extremely solid winger and rarely a weak link on the field, if ever.

Re: OFFICIAL: John Bateman to depart Raiders at end of 2020

At this stage, where John goes just depends where he sits on the jerk side of the scale for me. Had he just requested an exit from his contract to return to Wigan then fans would be understanding. The way it all played out leaves a sour taste in the mouth either way for me. I think there are good a...

Re: Curtis Scott and our best backline

I finally fell off the fence when Scott embarrassingly struggled to pull down Shaun Lane with the game on the line. I’ve seen enough, time for a change. He needs to go away, work on his game and sharpen up. Oh yeah, that was embarrassing. His 0.5m runs out of dummy half to waste a tackle every few ...

With Knights v Manly and Roosters v Storm next week winning this game will make up a lot of ground lost in the last month.

Re: 2020 Rd 7 V Eels: Game Day

I don't mind golden point but I don't like how it becomes a field goal shoot out. Should be tweaked to be golden try IMO, otherwise if it's a field goal you continue playing for the rest of the available time.

Re: Our attack when we are losing

You could've given us around half a dozen repeat sets against Manly and I don't think it would've made a difference. We barely looked threatening all night. The lack of players in motion running good lines and support play up the middle look to be the much bigger issues to me. You need to be able t...
