Re: 2019 Trial 1 V Eels: Teams and Game Day *Teams p1*

Charnze Nicoll Klokstad is off... and he probably should have been playing fullback from the start. Yep, he would have done way better than Simmonsen and whoever the right winger is. I guess Ricky thinks he's shown enough and been given the rest. I like the look of Josh Starling in attack. Starling...

Re: Rapana looking to extend time with Canberra Raiders

It's REALLY tough, because Rapana is both an elite player, arguably the best in his position, and a very good club man who provides the fan base with a really good, fun loving bloke you can cheer on and constantly delivers highlights... he's the sort of guy you want to have and want to pay... but y...

If Wighton moves to 6, do you think he'll be left side or right side? He is much better on the left.

Sounds like Warriors planning on playing Hiku at 5/8 :lol: at least short term if they can’t land a replacement straight away. Wouldn’t be surprised if they put some of Johnson’s money in to a decent prop(Tapau?) if they can’t sign a decent half for 2019
