Re: 2022 State of Origin II: Blues V Maroons

This series does have a whiff of 2020 about it. Qld played above themselves in game one and got the big upset, NSW dominated game 2 and you expect that normal service has resumed. But then inexplicably Qld win game three. Potentially the same thing here. By rights, NSW should win game three comfort...

Re: 2022 State of Origin II: Blues V Maroons

Burton, Wighton and Mitchell all play at left center. I don't know that Mitchell will have the match fitness to play but stranger things have happened. I reckon Jack will be moved to the right center position with Burton staying on the left. This will leave the Burton/To'o left side intact. Crichton...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews

Starlings talent is to use his pace for a fast dash at the line. Someone seems to have told him to stop and pass the footy. It is confusing him. I hope he goes back to taking on the line and hopefully coming out the other side when he runs at a tired forward, rather than the stutter steps and lookin...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2022

If we are going for a utility for next year I would prefer us to be looking at an Adam Keighran type player. Aged in the mid 20's and able to cover 2 spine positions (9 and 6) as well as center and he can kick goals. Would not be overpriced either. BadNMean, how do his stats look?

For the criticism of Fogarty, he forced a few repeat sets and had one try not scored because of a milk bottle and another because of a Savage miss / Timoko knock-on.

Half Time 14-6 to the Raiders. The forwards playing well and I have to say the backs are showing what they are capable of. Savage looking good and Timoko. Cotric good under the bombs even though his opponent is much taller. Up to the Raiders to keep applying the pressure and push on to win the game.

Selfless person and good Clubman. Watching him come through the juniors I thought we had a possible Rep player. The NRL showed up some defensive frailties he was not able to overcome.

Is that because it’s a kick that Jack is not very good at, and one he doesn’t choose when he should? Which might be improved by… moving Jack out of the halves?
