Re: Canberra Raiders veteran Sia Soliola wants to play on

Would love Sia to stay at the club permanently in whatever capacity.
Definitely a great impact player to have off the bench for now.

Re: Curtis Scott breaks silence on Australia Day incident

I've said all along the charges will either be dropped or reduced, based on what I have heard (unsubstantiated just to be clear).

I trust the source, so lets see.

Re: $7.7m Triple treat: Jarrod Croker and Nick Cotric set to re-sign with Canberra Raiders

Hey boys, want to sign a centre that'll go down in history as being the leading try scorer, point scorer, and potentially retire as having played more games than anyone else for your club? He'll likely hold on to every record until the world melts into the sun? He'll probably end up retiring as the...

Re: $7.7m Triple treat: Jarrod Croker and Nick Cotric set to re-sign with Canberra Raiders

I have no issues with Croker getting paid. One club man, top tier centre and points scorer for the club. Not to mention his leadership which has played a role in our culture shift. The club's "fork in the road moment" was punting douche bags like Dugan and Ferguson and betting long on the likes of C...

Re: Have the Canberra Raiders finally overcome their salary cap disadvantage?

We've developed a good chunk of our top 100 players..

We certainly were innovative with our approach to poaching top Super League talent.

I'll add that I have no doubt that our coach and the culture around the club right now is at it's best since the 90's.

Just file this in with the long list of ‘BJ being a **** idiot’.

He constantly needed rockets when he was here to keep the fat off. His arrogance could be useful on the field, but this was simply not needed on his way out the door.

If he's on the books until 1 March, we'd have paid $233,000 already.

Re: NRL announces rule changes for trainers, endorses challenge system

The 20/40 rule is a joke but when you think about it, how often do teams get pinned inside their 20 on the 5th tackle? The defensive team is better off letting them roll out past the 20 meter line to negate the possibility of a 20/40. It’s a dumb rule...the NRL is practically endorsing all football ...

I dont base this on any inside information or anything but reading the tea leaves as i see them... and i could easily be wrong... but i dont think this guy is coming to play wing, or 14. or play for mounties. He's coming here to be our long term centre. A beej move feels like a forgone conclusion.....
