Re: 2019 Rd 11 V Cowboys: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

This is a vital game & a win is essential. I doubt the boys will be able to play with the same intensity as they displayed in the last 3 halves of footie against a so-called lesser team. However, NQ are no pushovers so they will need to be close to their best to come out on top. Control the 1st half...

Once again, I was absolutely stoked with our effort and the result. I’m not going to read the gameday thread until tomorrow sometime because it’s probably filled with bitching and complaining and blaming of the referees, but as raiders fans, we should all hold our heads up high This team is finals ...

Re: 2019 Rd 10 V Rabbitohs: Game Day

Just got back from the game & after digesting the election result I haven't had a chance to read the thread. I strongly feel that taking the 2 penalties after we had squared at 2 all in the 1st half was a waste of possession & lost opportunity. We needed to go for tries. I think we lost it there.

Re: 2019 Rd 9 V Roosters: Game Day

Piss poor refereeing at the start of the game, no excuse to perform that badly though. What the **** is our fascination with kicking the ball early in the sets? I don't want to watch that game again, but it must have been near 10 times!?! Drives me crazy. Organise the team and run some shape ****. ...

Re: 2019 Rd 9 V Roosters: Game Day

We lost the game in the 1st half when our discipline was poor (& the ref were a little pedantic) plus more importantly when we had chances in the red zone, Sutton threw a blatant forward pass & Harvilli lost the ball. Overall, not a bad result as the Raiders have met top opposition & come close but ...

Rapana doesn't look like he should have been playing today.
He had crook ribs - the knee injury with nobody near him totally unrelated
I'm referring to his play before the knee injury.

Re: 2019 Rd 9 V Roosters: Game Day

Aside from the the problem the 2 Suttons are causing us we have not come to the game with a defenCe mindset. Simple mistakes 2 out of the 3 times we have been in the Roosters red zone are unforgivable. However, we have taken 2 off their best players out of the game so with more thought & commitment ...

Happy for the win but the cats were horrible to day so we should have really won by more & not let in their last soft try. Losing Bateman for an extended period really sucks!

Today we get to see how much Ricky has progressed as a coach.

This is going to be a tight game. Wighton needs to build on his positives & minimise his mistakes. It would also be good if Croker can get his radar working again. Raiders to sneak home by 4.

I have hope for this season (well every season until reality bites) thanks to a fresh looking more mobile team.
