Harsh to be given a next one is gone warning on a high tackle IMO
I'd love to see the next penalty come from an offside off a knock on or something, I'm certain they'd still bin.

Re: That decision

Is their an NRL stats site with the individual penalty details listed for each game? Preferably with scores at the time, and penalty awarded to, and the time of the penalty. I kept a manual list a few years ago, and once the Raiders had a lead of 10 points or more, we were 8 times more likely to co...

Re: Jack Murchie to make his Raiders debut

You can get that data set by copy and pasting the foxsports lab stats. I think the extremes of defensive stats can confirm the eye test, for example Austins looked exactly like you'd expect and were a real outlier for halves. For most scenarios you cant get much out of it, other than as a proxy for...

I saw that, looks like a very flakey and subjective analysis. E.g Whitehead beats Kikau in 3/5 criteria, but because he gives away an extra penalty every two games and makes 1 less 1 on 1 tackle every two games he is 150% worse as a defender? Really with the stats avaialable to the average punter y...

The sad reality we face is that Sutton thought the bunker made the right call (excluding the flag part).

Re: Round 20 Raiders v Storm team list page1

I heard we were just going to get one of the fathers from each team to run the line and one of the storm trainers has already volunteered to ref.

No point sending out paid "professionals" out to our games any more.

What happened, can't catch the game live Cowboys player failed to take the pass, it bounced off his chest pretty much straight into Croker's hands, and as Croker stepped sideways his knee gave way. They've strapped it very heavily and he's still out there, but I am very worried. Cheers. Bugger.
