Re: John Bateman - Best first season in Raiders history?

Mal Meninga came to the club in 1986... and that year was great, but it wasn't his best... and the Raiders didn't make the finals, finishing towards the bottom of the ladder. But there have been a lot of great first seasons... Ricky Stuart won club Player of the Year in 1988 in his debut season, an...

Re: 2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Game Day

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but I just watched "roaming Elliott" in the sheds talking to BJ about the match winning try. It was pretty clever smarts from BJ, who let's face it, isn't really known for smart thinking a lot of the time. BJ basically says he didn't throw it out wide to ...

Re: 2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Game Day

So Brett Finch's response last night was that Melbourne lost that game. On reflection this has been a recurring theme all year in the media, teams have always made errors that cost them the game against Canberra. How long do you have to win for before people come to the realisation that maybe it is...

Why is there no appetite for sensible, well spoken, quality people like Alan Tounge in NRL media. It seems you can only get a gig if you didn’t study English beyond year 8 and have some form of rouge past.

Re: Canberra Raiders re-sign Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad to end 2023

It was a bit more than "reserved" though dubby. You didn't want either CNK or Simonsson to ever play first grade again, after a 21-0 round one win. Some quotes: Dubby, you hope 3 of our debutants never see first grade again? You can’t be serious. Besides Bateman, I’m struggling to figure out which 3...
