Three things excite me about those highlights.

First is obviously the speed of Savage. Absolutely blistering, but he also has size about him.

Second is the way Esera just barged through opponents to score that second try. He has been compared to a young David Fifita but at times I think he lacks the aggression to use his big body. That was exactly what he needs to do.

Thirdly is the two tries to Trey Mooney, love seeing a lock able to provide that sort of support play.

Yeah the size Savage is while maintaining a speed advantage at that level is very promising.
Sometimes the shift to grade can take some of that away but he looks built for it.

Still believe Savage is lacking some confidence in his hamstring but getting there. A joy to watch.

It's good to see the turnaround since the below average game against the Roosters.

Hopefully there is a live stream this week to watch.

SG Ball Semi Final Preview: Raiders v Sea Eagles


The Raiders SG Ball side go head-to-head with the Sea Eagles in a high-stakes Grand Final qualifier at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday.

“I think it’s great at this stage of the year that we do get to play these sides that have performed well that we haven’t been able to play before,” coach Ash Barnes said. “They’re a quality football side, they’re a powerful side with a lot of strike across the field, so we’re expecting a really tough match”.

27th min Seven penalties to the Raiders. Moala hit hit high twice in a row. The Sea Eagles are being dirty, mouthing off... you’d even say arrogant. Moala off for an HIA... all the Eagles get is a sin bin.

30th min PENALTY GOAL RAIDERS to Mitchell Spencer.

Raiders 20-6

Good referring there. That was a cheap shot on a player who already went down.

Smart decision to take the two.

Handy that we have a half as 18th man if Moala can’t come back.
