Re: 2022

I wouldn’t be opposed to doing a mini rebuild this year to have a look at some kids and see where we need to go to the market (players like HSS, Timoko, Savage, Webb, Mooney). Surely Super league would take Croker in a heart beat, that free’s up a spot for Kris. I think we should let Curtis Scott go...

Joel Caine mentioned on the ‘get em onside’ podcast that his mail is Elliot Whitehead will captain the raiders this week. Croker a late out maybe?

With BJ out for the season, I hope the Ricky is considering moving Cotric to right centre to see how he goes. He's clearly a right sided player- you can tell by the way he fends and carries the ball that he prefers to hold the ball in his right hand. Have Oldy on the right wing outside him so he has...

Our slow starts to the previous two years have been because of our inability to close out games in the last 20min. Since this continued throughout the year, people can’t possibly say it’s due to a lack of trial games? Really? It was happening in rounds 15-26

Re: What's your strongest possible Canberra Raiders 2019 line up?

I think Oldfield will start the year at fullback with CNK and Simonsson fighting it out for that wing spot. He’s trained all offseason there and I think he’ll get first crack in the dogs trial.

But I think we need to think outside the box in terms of recruitment. Isaako wouldn’t cost us more than $300k and has the skill set to be a very good up and coming full...
