Re: Are we premiership contenders?

If we want to be contenders the next 5 games are critical. Eels Dragons Tigers Panthers Warriors Win 4 of these and add the bye and we are basically guaranteed to make the 8. Chooks Storm Sea eagles Sharks We probably need to win 2 of these to make the top 4 and knocking off either the storm or cho...

Re: The Cricket Thread

Still concerned. We're going to be up against it against England and India IMO, I think Warne is right - we still have some gears to reach in our game.

I don't normally post phone snaps but I was in the 'Berra this week for work and strolling around Lake Tuggers on the way to the office this morning and saw this vista.

Re: The Cricket Thread

Yeah look i'm not hailing either of them as the messiah - but we haven't got the balance right at the moment and we're going to hit the business end of the tournament fairly soon (personally, unless we start playing the way we were a few months back, I think we will struggle).

Re: The Cricket Thread

I disagree. Look, I'm not huge Marsh fan either, but our bowling to me is the most critical issue and I have no faith in Stoinis offering a legitimate 5th bowling option when up against the likes of England or India's batting line ups. Marsh is a pretty decent bowler. His batting is sub-par - can't ...

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.

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.
