Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

The Titans had signed Cherry Evans but the Raiders reportedly offered $1.5 million over three years, and the Titans and no other club could match it. The Titans tried to keep him. https://www.thegh.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=29251&start=35#p1219204 Interesting to see everyone’s reactions. yea...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

He’ll go to NZ. And I’m not convinced by him being worth much money as of yet. Yea he's a work in progress but he looked really good against England, his combination with Milford has never worked but i'm not convinced they are an ideal halves pairing. Agree he'll likely end up at the Warriors, I do...

Nikorima apparently being shopped by the broncos, apparently only on 350-400K or so, I reckon he'll end up at the Warriors (despite there denials) but if he doesn't then he'd be worth a go, he's not a marquee player but imo he's progressing and improving as a player, be good value if we could get hi...

Re: Liam Knight linked to South Sydney Rabbitohs

We’ve already got big money tied up in Croker, BJ, Rapana, Cotric and Wighton, Johnston would help short term but long term it would be a terrible move for our salary cap and the balance of our squad to tie more cash up in a highish profile outside back

Re: Canberra Raiders express interest in Kiwi superstar Shaun Johnson

Anyone who wouldn't release Rapana to sign Shaun Johnson has rocks in their head IMO. No one in our club could get that deal done however, when it's this competitive for his signature. If Rapana wasn't a favourite of mine I'd probably agree. But while Johnson is an upgrade on our halves he's still ...

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

This is why you don't sign bog average players like Sezer on big money just for the sake of having a reasonable profile half. Said it at the time.

I don't think it's clear for Rapana given 11 weeks was the earliest return and the assesment was actually 11-14 weeks. Surely if it is 11-14 weeks we'd be able to qualify for dispensation.

I think Johnson is a match winner but he ain’t a premiership winning half. Too inconsistent.

Based on this I think we can get him.
