They'll never move on - Every little thing that goes wrong with that club will be blamed on IC.

They will never admit their club may be at fault (well, the idiotic ones anyway... they do have some level headed fans).

It is why I love them failing. The moment they look at the problem as the hack CEO will be when they go well

The wheels are wobbling at Canberra.

The wife of Raiders forward Joe Tapine has slammed Canberra coach Ricky Stuart for keeping her husband benched for most of a loss against South Sydney.

Canberra lost 34-20 to the Rabbitohs on Thursday night. An angry message from Kirsten Tapine, made in an Instagram story, has since surfaced.

"You have an international player warming your bench for 50 minutes … Your interchanges are killing us!!!" she wrote.

"Refs call count means jak (sic) when coaches are (rubbish bin emoji)."
Tapine, a New Zealand Test player, started on the bench and played just 32 minutes in the loss to South Sydney.

Stuart also had starting prop Ryan James play only the opening 23 minutes, while veteran forward Iosia Soliola got only nine minutes off the bench.

Tapine was making an NRL return in the game, having been dropped for the previous round's match against North Queensland.

The Raiders are on a four-game losing streak and hold a 3-5 record this season.

Its taken a bit longer than usual but Ricky has finally lost the canberra dressing room. He lost it in record time at the Parra job, it was looking like he found the right formula at Canberra but nup, Dropping Papi and getting slammed by a players wife is big red flags, things could get ugly.

Canberra has a lot of money but they seem to be a very unprofessional organisation in the football department, its still just jobs for the boys big time down there.

Parra have decided mutually to part company with Jennings .This will create a place in there roster and cap space .A bit of this will go towards keeping Moses
Sad to see a Penrith junior who had a great career go out this way.But you take the chance with drugs you pay the price

I wouldn't want to be Jason Demetriou next season. Bennett has a habit of leaving a mess.
Souths are making a big mistake letting Reynolds go.

Yep only 2 or 3 halves in the game who can legit control a game via kicking. Broncos forwards will get a big boost.

Any coach after Bennett leaves has big issues. Reynolds staying or not still would be a very old squad

Bennett wanted to keep him. Souths know Bennett wont be there next year I doubt they are letting him have much say in recruitment and retention. Bennett would probably just extend for whatever he wanted so this season isnt disrupted, next year its not his problem.
