Re: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart calls on Andrew Barr to build new Canberra stadium

Nah not Andrew, but it just shows how clueless some people are. Upgrade cycling infrastructure that is already ahead of most states when the stadium needs an update? yeah right...that's the thing with these sorts of pieces of infrastructure. They will always prove controversial - amazing the NSW gov...

Re: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart calls on Andrew Barr to build new Canberra stadium

I spoke to a mate based in CBR the other day and he said - "why on earth would we need a new stadium, we need to invest in cycling infrastructure and light rail first and a reasonable person would expect a 40 year old stadium to still be modern". I told him he is a fruitcake.

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

Not far off if we can keep playing like this but can't see us quite hitting the mark until we sort out our no 7 woes. I thought Sezer started the game well on Thursday but just went missing and happens too often with him for my liking - we already know the ups and downs of Williams as well.

You’d go Marsh over Stoinis?
mMarsh? I'm not convinced stoinis is a good 5th bowling option, reckon M marsh has him beat there. If you mean stoinis in place of Shaun marsh or khawaja, yes I can see the argument

Re: The Cricket Thread

Geez we are terrible at finishing atm. We have too many accumulators and not enough power hitters, no 5th bowler and no top line spinner in the 11 (no Lyon is baffling). For all his critics, mmarsh may help alleviate some of those concerns

Re: The Cricket Thread

Well to be fair he was probably our best batsman in 2019 up until this tournament so I think he's deserved a bit of leeway. one thing about him though is that his best and worst have a big gap.

Apparently Cotric's injury isn't as severe as first thought, and so recovery time may be quicker than expected.

Re: The Cricket Thread

Who is James Patterson? Pattinson? Think he's been a bit short of a gallop with lots of injuries etc.

Jhye Richardson would have come in handy, but even a hazelwood would be an improvement.

Three games already washed out, what bright spark decided having the WC in England was a good idea
Having the world cup in England was perfectly fine. Not having reserve days (even if it's being played at the same time as another match) was a dumb idea.
