Re: Matt's Match-ups 2019

If I'm left out of another clique I swear to god I'm going to the cowboys forum, whatever its called (cowpeople.com?). I'm not sure I'm comfortable with this success business as it is, it won't take much to push me over.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Looks like he could do with developing a pass. All good to back yourself but he gets in the clear and has someone backing up the middle it's probably better if he can draw the fb and pass rather than trying to run over him, unless it's boyd it won't work as well at FG. Some strong running and agrro ...

Re: Matt's Match-ups 2019

My bigger issue is actually with putting Alvaro level with Papa, he's lucky he gets to share the field with him. I know the stats might look similar (I've only glanced) and Papa seems to be "flying under the Raider" (I'll gift you that one for free if you want to use it next week) because he hasn't ...

Re: 2019 Rd 5 V Eels: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I think it's fine to bring Tapine back off the bench. He doesn't even have to come on at front row. You could say push him to lock (or shuffle Bateman there and put Tarps at 2nd row) after 20min. Give Sutton a 10min break and then throw him back on at 30min to spell Papa. Plenty of ways to work it r...

Re: 2019 Rd 4 V Cowboys: Teams and Previews

Sezer has proven that he's not good enough to warrant changing a winning side for him. But the reality is neither of these guys are the answer and the club knows it, which is George is coming. Fingers crossed he delivered like the other english imports have. This is about all that needs to be said....

Re: 2019 Rd 2 V Storm: Game Day

Maybe we need to do some more scenario training, this time around being pinned in our own half, because we looked flustered. We only ever went a few passes wide once or twice and whilst I know it seems risky to do in your own half, it was the only thing working. Kicking wise I kept seeing Sezer and ...

He's part Canadian, right? Sign him up... "In his 12 matches for the Storm, he was described statistically as the best defensive five-eighth in the NRL." Not much of a surprise.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

Assuming*** there isn't some awfully big skeletons that caused the other clubs to pull out, I think Jacks would be a good pickup. Big bodied, aggressive defender who only needs to get early ball to the blokes outside him (and run it on occasion to keep the defense honest). Defensive wise he'd be an ...

Surely the Q is, Williams at half. Or Oldie on a wing That's the Q, well as far as I'm concerned. I can see the pros and cons either way. But once a decision is made it needs to be stuck to. Fortunately this seems less impactful than which 2 hookers to use instead of hodgo. The biggest concern with...

Re: NRL ban Jack Wighton for 10 matches, impose $30,000 fine

I'd play Cotric at fb and I only need one reason for it, the guy appears to have a great footy brain under pressure.
I'd then be in the ear of Slater lining him up for a fb coaching/consulting role (like the John's bros tend to do for halves).
