BJ Mole reported Raiders interest in Storm centre Curtis Scott way back in 2002, but can now confirm it’s a done deal. Kaboom. (In true Mole tradition)

Finally it’s confirmed, hope we don’t lose Leilua.
According to Paul Crawley today, Leilua has no intention of seeking an early release.
This is the only thing that matters. Every man and his dog wants Leilua to stay - the club has said it has the money for him to stay. Hopefully he stays.

Great signing. We have 5 outstanding winger/centres in our squad. I don't care where they play but you can bet they'll all be in our best 17 if fit. I'd suggest Ricky will tell them the 4 with the best form start, regardless of reputation - which is brilliant. Oldfield and Kris as next cabs off the rank is awesome depth.

Pure gut feeling is that BJ will end up at the Tigers.

Good signing . I like Scott. He did smash Walker after all.

I think its the end of Joey though in Raider colours . Shame as he is a game breaker.

That's tremendous depth in the outside backs.
Sam Williams a great depth player for our halves.

Would really like some strengthening of our middle forward depth. Will see.

It will be great if we keep BJ for at least a year. Adding quality to quality is what wins comps.

Could be BSimo in 14, and Scott/Leilua 4&5
Yep. Leilua didn't even play from the bench when coming back from his terrible injury. Scott's not being signed to play 14 and in his last game against the roosters Melbourne pushed Chambers to the wing for him so he's not playing badly.
For 2020 I think it'll be
4. Leilua
5. Scott
14. Simo

I think this is what it will be. Just remember, B Simmo is a rookie with around 20 games experience.

Curtis Scott's signing doesn't mean Joey Leilua has to leave: Canberra Raiders CEO Don Furner

Curtis Scott's addition to the Raiders roster for 2020 doesn't mean Joey Leilua will be forced out but it does mean Canberra have finalised their recruitment for next season.

"That's definitely it for us," CEO Don Furner said on Friday, after his club announced the Storm centre's imminent arrival on a four-year deal.

I actually don't think I'm against that idea.

Won't happen though, but I finally think we've got a genuine option to play Croker on the wing.

Not sure how I feel about this until we get some kind of full confirmation about BJ (apart from his own). I don't see Scott as a winger and he hasn't come here to play at Mounties.

I do applaud the club though for being pro-active in trying to improve the squad and keep it fresh, instead of putting the feet up and resting. If anything, Scott gives us longevity that both BJ and Croker no longer provide.

I agree we look good...
Obviously we’ll need luck with injury/suspension etc... but if G. Williams is the upgrade I think (hope) he’ll be, Jack and CNK a full pre season together and our young Props continue their upward surge we should be in it up to our eye balls again!!

Interesting to see how the team takes shape. Assuming the squad remains the same Scott could play right wing while BJ is there. Form and injury then dictate what happens from there.

Beyond 2020 its hard to see BJ remaining with the club given the length of Scott's deal. Whether this is a good or bad move by the club is yet to be seen, therefor I'll reserve judgment.

A bit off topic but I thought his manager Sam Ayoub wasn’t keen on the Raiders? Has that changed in recent times?
