I bet we'd get the new stadium built then.... You could hear him with the shovel to start construction 'dig a hole, dig a hole, dig a hole' and no opposition would even need to be injured. :lol:

Players on the supplementary list can now play from Round 1. I assume there's an injury issue for Trev.

What does my head in is some guy who has never shown interest in the Raiders before riding their coat tails as some kind of political ploy.

Doubt he's ever even watched a game.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Apparently we are well placed for a shot at $100k for the pre-season challenge. We got 4 points against Parra I heard? Something about number of offloads/breaks/tries - it sounded a confusing scoring system. Anyone know how it works?

Sweet - what’s happens with the $100k? Split it across the squad and staff? End of season holiday?

Where will the Cowboys be at for this game. Wasn’t the idea as to why we were playing them because they were doing a camp in the region.

If they are working them hard on the camp they might be pretty cooked for Sunday.

Seems like these really are “trials” with so many players still not playing. Very interested to see the actual round 1 team.

Actually, its probably cause Ricky is going to play Raps at FB, and doesn't want to risk him in a trial. I wouldn't be surprised if Chevy comes on later - he only made 50 minutes last week before cramping up - so some match fitness needed there.
More interesting is Xavier at Wing for the second time.

Some of these players have zero chance of first grade this year or frankly any year unless something is badly wrong. Run a NSW cup trial if you want to give them match fitness like any normal club does.
