Id like anyone who **** the idea of signing Chad Townsend to put their hand up and apologise. Hes been outstanding for the sharks yet again and would have been the perfect right side option to compliment jack
He was instrumental in their close victory against a bottom of the table injury ravaged titans team wasn’t he.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

2 year ago there were rumours jack walker Leeds rhinos was one of the raiders potential signing, he came through there academy, he is only a kid but is definitely 1 to watch out for in future, klokstad is ripping it up, I been very impressed with him, another great signing by raiders

Probably the same people who wanted to see BJ released but are crying now he is out for the season.

Haha the people that want BJ released are the same sort of people who think Hingano is the worst player ever, that Whitehead is having an ordinary season and that Croker can't kick goals.

Nobody who knows anything about rugby league wanted him gone.

Looks like the Eels are making a bid for DWZ as a right center before June 30. Penrith may be looking at a clean out.

That’s an odd one. He looks very ordinary as a centre for mine. It hems him in and takes away his only real strength as a player; broken field running.

Agree it's odd since he hasn't played there. Maybe they are pretending it's for center so they don't let the cat out of the bag that Gutherson is gone.

If Rapana is out for a length of time and with Joey already gone, any chance we might look at an outside back for depth before June 30? If Bailey or Oldfield go down who else is left?

Seb Kris is the last back left in the first grade squad in that scenario but I don't think he is ready. After June 30 we would be able to play development players or we could upgrade Rennie or Santini from Mounties.

I think we may go to the market if there is a player worth a 2 year deal out there.

I saw the photo, but talking terms lol how would they know.
Pretty sure Robbo coached in the ESL and was trying to buy Hodgo as a back up Hooker before he joined us.

Could be a touch reactionary imo. It’s short term goal signings like that that can hurt your cap balance for mine. I think Oldfield and Simonsson are really great 1 and 2 back ups and if were forced to play Kris for a week or 2 through injury so be it. He’s probably on par with a few outside backs in the game already

I don’t know what room we have for #30 but Satini is consistently one of the better backs in NSW cup and could probably fill a hole on minimum wage for half a season imo.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Hodgo is here for longer than that. He signed a 4-5 year deal at the end of the 2017 off season. He is here until at least 2022....

Hodgo was on the same flight back to Sydney as were the roosters whole team and staff, he was in front of me, had a chat to fitzgibbons on the way to the plane and robbed while waiting for his bag, nothing in it, just roosters being polite to a raider that got shafted onto a plane by himself, he was a cool dude and talked to me when I saw o had a raiders shirt on.

Is this another one of those co-captain things where they booked the captain seats and only Croker was allowed to use them?

Not sure he was actually linked, but I had suggested him as one to watch. He certainly still is and hasn't looked bad in a very weak Leeds team.

I would love this to happen before June 30 and the stars are aligning, sezer wants to move to Sydney to be close to his family he should move to a town called Penrith,Maloney in the news to possibly be out the door to England before his contract finishes he should move to a town called wigan, George Williams can move to a town called Canberra!!!!!

Not that it's specifically relevant to the Raiders, but Hull FC signed second-rower Josh Jones from Salford, today.

He's a pretty decent player and was much in demand. He would be in the same bracket as Sutton (although probably a bit better).

It's been reported that he chose Hull because theirs was the biggest offer. Apparently, he'll be getting paid AU$220,000 per year.

At that kind of value, I think we'll be seeing a lot more English players heading to the NRL.

He is ok but doesn't really fit what we need or how we are playing. If we sign a forward it needs to be a very good one.
