Re: 2020 Rd 1 V Tigers: Teams and Previews

Tigers often start OK and fall away as the season starts to drag.

We will have to be up from the first minute for the whole game. There’s always a few surprises through the first 2 rounds.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2021

I just can’t see Cotric becoming the player he could have become at the Bulldogs.

He will be a very good player there and will certainly break tackles and score tries.

I just wonder how he’ll feel if Raiders win a premiership and/or he goes through a finals drought.

Brisbane Broncos 2021

If Corey Parker ever demonstrated his ability to analyse rugby league I’d be shocked at his sacking.

You only have to watch his tired and cliched analysis of Raiders games to know he doesn’t have an original thought or insight in his head.

Re: Emre Guler re-signs with the Raiders until end of 2023

Lui has been reported as taking less to stay with us at just a bargain $250k a season. He deserves a good final contract. So I think Raiders fans will wish him well. I think Papa and a few of the boys wouldn’t want to lose his off field and training ground influence. Problem is a young forward sudde...

Re: Jarrod Croker to miss start of 2021 season after shoulder surgery

I’d rather hardened players who expect to be top 4 than another bunch of potential stars such as Carney or Dugan who are more interested in drinking and contract size. These players are our best chance in 20 plus years. I’d love a Tedesco at fullback or Latrell in the centres, but this experienced l...

My guess is that he wouldn’t miss two games if it had happened in Origin.

I also think he didn’t go full power on the shoulder charge. Grade 1 for me and a rare call defending a Tigers player.

Not finding this the most exciting game of rugby league I’ve watched.

The mistakes haven’t helped but speed doesn’t always equal exciting football.

The quick play and faster game makes for heaps of dummy half runs and one off the ruck hit ups.
