Totally agree we should reserve national anthems for international events. To play it at any major domestic event is an Americanism we don't need.

Re: Canberra Raiders sign Matt Frawley to development contract

interesting that a lot of you seem to think that development stops at a certain age. If no club wishes to sign a player then it is obvious that they need to continue to develop their game in order to obtain a contract. Regardless of their age. Its not a junior development contract which would possi...

Bromich and Murray over Bateman? Seems odd. Cook over Hodgo is rubbish. Is this the Origin award or best NRL award? Cook had nothing at the end of the year, looked a bit out of ideas and 1 dimensional. Jack and Munster was a coin toss for most of the year, but Jack finished far better in the games ...

Given that Wighton had a much higher number of gets of the halves in 2019 it may not be as big an issue. Williams will get his chance to ease into the role.

Re: 2019 in review - Sam Williams

Did OK when he played, although the issues that prevent him being a good NRL half continue. Would be a 5 or 6 but only playing 10 games drops him down to a 4/10.
