Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Canberra Raiders' run home has them primed for NRL finals The Raiders have one of the easiest draws of the six clubs fighting it out for the bottom two spots in the top eight. Using the average ladder position of their opponents as a guide to how tough the remaining fixtures were, the Raiders have ...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

The only thing I can think of doing with that bench is bringing on CNK for Whitehead and shifting Kris to second row, CNK to centre. What will actually happen though is Whitehead will have another disastrous and/or ineffectual 80 minutes and CNK will rot on the bench as a wasted bench spot as we ine...

Re: 2022 State of Origin II: Blues V Maroons

Slater is getting plenty of plaudits but I don’t think leaving papa off while you are getting overrun and signs of fatigue abound while the game is in the balance is worthy of praise.

Re: Ricky Stuart says he’ll never again coach against the Canberra Raiders

Usually the club waits for a Ricky “bull market” to re-sign him. Will be interesting to see the reaction if Rocky guides us to our fourth 10th place finish in 6 years; next year starts looking mediocre too; but he is offered a new contract. To be sure, I have no doubt they will continue on their mer...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews

Really pleasing to see those sort of comments from Tapine. I’d be tempted to throw him the (C) very soon. Particularly with Whitehead declining at a rate of knots. I firmly believe that, whilst your captain doesn’t need to be the best player on the team, they simply can’t be a liability. I feel that...

Re: Zac Woolford set to secure new two year deal at Canberra Raiders

2 years at the right money is a mutually beneficial outcome here. He gets time to prove he is the long term solution; and the club gets time to assess whether his good form is sustainable or just a flash in the pan.

Re: 2022 Rd 15 V Knights: Game Day

No thank you to CNK being parachuted straight back in. I love CNK but his ceiling is nowhere near Savages. It’s not like we are in a situation whereby we are one piece away from winning the comp and the risk of Savage being a liability in a big moment is too great. We are actively hunting for ways t...

I thought Fogarty’s kicking game in the attacking zones was excellent yesterday. But he needs work on the other areas of his game.

Re: Elliott Whitehead

There is a perfectly cromulent, mutually beneficial solution available with EW where he doesn’t need to be seen to have been thrown under the bus and Ricky can save face with one of his locker room guys. His minutes should be reduced either from the starting 13 or from the bench. This means we can s...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews

I reckon people are being a bit harsh on the Fog tbh. A few nice repeat sets; a try assist; and a promising combo with Xav building. Likewise if people are calling for Xav to be dropped. He is a legitimate point of difference in an otherwise dismal attack, notwithstanding that he is a rocks and diam...

14-6 at halftime is an awful result considering.

Looking forward to us taking a penalty goal after halftime to push it to 16-6 as the next typical sign that we are going to blow it.

Re: 2022 Rd 15 V Knights: Game Day

I’ll actually extend the no excuses sentiment to our season as a whole.

Our run home is actually really favourable. 8/10 games are against bottom 9 sides.

No excuses. If we fail to make the 8 it is another resounding failure for Ricky and the team.
