Re: 2019 Rd 2 V Storm: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Hope they are not rushing him too early. Simonsson went well last week but there is a slight jump in class on Friday to contend with.

Re: 2019 Rd 1 V Titans: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I have hope for this season (well every season until reality bites) thanks to a fresh looking more mobile team. Line speed is everything in RL & having more agile forwards should help in this area but combinations & team cohesion are a work in progress. This season has to be Ricky's last chance to g...

Re: 2018 Rd 25 V Warriors: Game Day

I watched the game in a pub in Chiang Mai w/o sound & was completely perplexed by some of the referring decisions & the denial of the last Raider's "try" . One thing that was obvious w/o sound was just about every time Austin touched the ball something bad happened. God I'm glad he is gone, his pros...

Re: 2018 Rd 24 V Rabbitohs: Game Day

The Raiders really upped their defence in the 2nd half & the Bunnies seemed to tire particularly Inglis who's lack of match fitness became apparent. Terrific win, I just wished they had shown just half of today's commitment in those close losses during the season. Last weeks & today's wins will ceme...

Re: 2018 Rd 23 V Roosters: Game Day

7 tackles from the 20 for a knock on in the ingoal area, what a joke of a rule 100% agree at bare minimum this has to be adjusted next year. There’s nothing logical about giving them 20 free metres there or an extra tackle. Just dumb Agreed as well, it should have always only been for long kicks......

Re: 2018 Rd 22 V Tigers: Game Day

I can’t disagree with too much Ricky said. In general I agree Bay53. When he called out the 10 minute period with BJ in the bin he was right. The Tigers put 16 points on us in that 10 minute period. Outside of that 10 minute period he could argue that the score was 20-6 in our favour. What he didn'...

Re: 2018 Rd 22 V Tigers: Game Day

Why Murchie didn’t get on today has me stumped. It’s like Ricky wants to discourage our juniors from ever wanting to play FG for the Raiders. It’s unbelievable, I’m just in shock his attitude towards them. The season is over, show some respect for the team next year and ensure Guler, Murchie, Knigh...

Despite the Master coach promising to fix their defensive deficiencies nothing changed. Today was one of their worst performances.

Re: 2018 Rd 22 V Tigers: Game Day

Tarpine has made a career of tackling high but when there is no one coaching the side he'll keep doing it. That combined with years of ill-discipline by the usual suspects (Austin's lifting tackle today was insane & BJ can't keep his trap shut) clearly demonstrates that no one in the coaching ranks ...

Re: 2018 Rd 21 V Panthers: Game Day

I still think Ricky sitting on the sideline contributes to the poor defence. He can't possibly see where the problems are in defence & take timely action to correct them. Like others I cannot see why players who wont be here next year are picked. It's not like they are match-winners, far from it!
