    English test back-rower John Bateman to the Raiders for two years, with a third in his favour.

    It's one of the strangest deals I've ever seen - he's already agreed to terms to return to Wigan after his time at Canberra ends on a three year deal. I rate the guy, but I hope we aren't just paying for him to have a holiday.

    No one chooses to holiday in Canberra.

    Well, not from Australia.

    Compared to Wigan, though....

    We are assembling a squad full of halves, whilst also playing our best centre in the halves
    Genius stuff all around from the supercoach.

    PS. Elgey cannot tackle.

    That sound is the bottom of the barrel being scraped.

    Of course, we can't afford the proper implements with which to scrape a barrel so Trent is doing it with a particularly large stick he found out on the Wakehurst Parkway.

    Pretty healthy competition at Manly for the #6. Elgey and Hodkinson... at many reserve grade clubs BOTH of these guys would be in the team.

    Selfish as they come. I'd laugh if it massively backfired and they ended up losing a promising youngster or two
