its weird the Raiders have been lumped in with the covid infested sydneysiders with no cases here & the lifting of mask wearing last week.

i know the Victorian govt has just closed the border to the ACT , that game v the storm could easily have been played in QLD without the entire raiders organisation being put in a hub

How bad does Croker have to be to get dropped again? Or should I say “injured” again.
I don’t give a f**k if this ends up being his last season the guy isn’t even nsw cup standard. Play Timoko you stubborn prick Ricky.

That's the question we all want to know. How bad DOES Croker have to get. He seems to get a pass on being completely innefective & anonymous (as opposed to say, offering anything to contribute toward a winning prformance). So the standard seems to be Croker has to be absolutely dire, for weeks in a row, to get dropped. With any shift upward to mediocre resetting the clock back to weeks of dire needed again.

He marks up on Ramien this week I think, who is a guy with a powerful running game. If Johnson is smart he'' dart out there & try to get Ramian + whoever a 2 on 2 with Croker & Semi...

Wighton & Frawley would have been a better halves combo even allowing for Williams scoring 2 tries. Jack can't strangle a team with his kicking game & in fact will often release the pressure valve at the worst possible time due to his poor kicking , but is a dangerous strong runner & can intimidate defences. Williams is a plodder .. end of , Frawley is a far better option & when his kicking is on ..aka manly last week he can destroy an opponent. Frawley would have taken the responsibilities of most of the kicking off Jack allowing wighton to run a lot more.
