    Raiders fans were waiting for him to f**k up, but it never happened.

    Was against him playing with us & getting back in first grade but he’s been exceptional.

    Makes Canberra losing in the finals against us & storm so sweet!

    He's been our best winger this season so far.
    Will be interesting when Dugan is fit and who gets ousted between Feki and Lee for Holmes back to the wing.. Probably Lee will make way I guess.

    I have a feeling if Holmes puts in similar performances like he did against Canberra he’ll keep the fullback job!

    His effort initially might work against him

    Lee was actually down on sunday compared to recent performances. he didnt take any dummy half rucks at all. Solid in all other areas though.

    Stoked with Lee this year. He is a massive unit, not only tall but has bulked up too. Looks real hard to tackle.
    Would like to see us kick to him on attacking plays more and have the inside men waiting for the bat back.

    Yeah I said back when Dugan first got ruled out that he'd come back at centre if Holmes impresses but Ramien and Loots (good last game) have been doing well..
    Gonna be interesting if everyone is firing when Doogs is fit!

    How good was that hit on Croker? Buried the whiny bitch.

    Didn’t go unnoticed either - assume all part of the gameplan....get under raiders skin and hammer.
    He has been solid all year aside from a few seggy style brain explosions
    Coach has a lot of options - think back through the years and he is spoilt at the moment

    Who'd have thought Lee would be part of that puzzle? Huge improvement this year. I'd hate to tackle him. He has 11 elbows.

    I still reckon he wasn’t listening in school when they said what bus to get on for sport.

    We are all pretty much converted now. Probably down to good coaching and team atmosphere. Full marks to all concerned. You can imagine what it was like to be coached by Ricky.

    It was only a few years ago that Edrick was 18th man for Qld. He has the talent we just didntbget to see it last year.
    The choice will be between him and Feki when Holmes goes back to the wing.
    Fek has been ok the last couple of weeks too. Tough call that one.
    Those calling for Duges back to the centres, not while Ramien is here, maybe next year when Barba returns, or maybe young Johnny proves himself.

    and he probably realised that he's got a career to salvage, big chance that can make or break him.

    Nobody was more excited than me when i broke the news that we had signed him. Nobody was more dissappointed than me in his form/attitude last . IMO, he is still nowhere near what he is capable of.

    If Holmes continues to improve I'd leave the back 3 intact when Duges returns. Duges 3, Ramien reggies.

    I would go:
    1. Duges
    2. Lee
    3. Ramien
    4. Loots
    5. Val

    It shouldn't be an issue for long, as Duges will probably get injured again in a couple of weeks...
