Re: Raiders say $4000 hotel bill worth every cent

I think this quote from Croker is telling: ''Whether the boys like to stay in their own bed or sleep at a motel I'm not really sure … if the coaches want to do it and that's what's going to keep us winning games then we'll do it.'' Most players that respect the head coach would just refer to it as ...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation

What exactly has Soward done to generate all this hatred ? I don't think he's ever broken the law, been a dirty player like Bird or Gallen were ? Premiership winning half back. played SOO last year in all three games, swallowed his pride and put in when dropped to park footy. http://www.smh.com.au/...

I'm actually a pretty big McCrone fan, but he definitely had an off game today. I agree that if he had a good game we would've won by a lot more, but I'm just happy with the win.

3. Duges
2. Fensom
1. Waddell

Fensom is always awesome, Dugan had a great game as time went on, and Waddell played well. As it was noted earlier, when Waddell plays well, we win.

We really need some more reliable and threatening attacking set moves added to the repetoire IMO.
