Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Game Day

An indication of how crook those 2 ref decisions were is the bookies refunding wagers placed on the Raiders!

Hopeful George Williams is the missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle, along with a squad full of players who have had GF experience.
How does George overcome the disgraceful refereeing we saw tonight? I think we gave it all but the result was outside our control apart from BJ's transgressions.

Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Game Day

I don't like to complain about the refs but in this game, a GF, we got dudded. The ball hitting a Rorter's runner resulting in their feed, the penalty try not being awarded (who is going to stop Papalli 5 mtrs out when no one is in front) and 0f course the non-6 again.

Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Game Day

Ben Cummins - there was no way to explain what happened. Definitely six again. Can Hasler share Annelsey's number? But BJ - although he had a great game - cost us the game - twice. One was his late pass, the other being out of position for the Roosters' try. Wighton had a better 4 weeks than Munste...

i don't know how they won. From my **** seats behind the southern goalline I basically had to watch the big screen at the northern end to follow the game. Luckily, the last 2 tries were scored at my end of the field. The Raiders seem to lift when CNK was sent off. A tense last 10 mins but the send-o...

Re: 2019 Finals Week 1 V Storm: Game Day

Hodgson needs to stop kicking on early tackles. Mel's 1st try resulted from one of his early kicks, A few rough edges that need to be fixed. BJ did well to flick inside to Bateman as I have little confidence in Croker to converting from out wide.

Tapine needs to never put on the uniform again, between injury and suspensions he’s a liability. That’s harsh. Thought he’s been pretty strong tonight.

That was a very fragile win. Play like that against Mel, Chooks, Bunnies and we are toast. Ricky has to have word with Hodgson to tone it down; he is not as good as he thinks he is. Also, Jack's erratic kicking needs to be fixed fast. On today's performance I can't see us stringing together enough ...

The momentum changed from Raiders in the 2nd half when Bateman was suckered into passing to the opp after a fantastic break. Sezer is not a great HB but we hail his FG abilities!

Re: 2019 Rd 24 V Sharks: Game Day

In attack, this team seems to live and die by Josh Hodgson's mentality. If his passing is off (which happens quite a lot), or if he tries to do too much with the ball, we look very, very average. Anyway, as always our attitude in defence will determine the result here. They were making far too many...

We can't blame the refs for this, the Raiders are a rabble. Croker still rushing out of the line, no kicking game, lack of discipline and poor reads in D and A. What does Ricky do between games?

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

Having looked at the stills of the intercept try on FB, the blame is with Hodgson. He threw a long pass when the play the ball was barely 1 mtr from the try line. Posters who claim that the MW player ran 10 mrs in x secs to take the intercept are having themselves on.
