Re: The National Rugby League Thread of 2012

Good win by the Raiders against the Warriors on Sunday. The Warriors were well off the pace though. It was also the Raider's first win at home for the season. Still missing personnel but I haven't read any reports of new injuries, which is good and hopefully will give the Raiders a higher chance of putting back to back wins together when they meet one of the form teams of the comp next round - the Broncos

The Eels were very disappointing. I feel at times when I'm losing my faith with them - due to situation with the team and current coach.

I understand Parramatta are cellar dwellers at the moment or close to it

You should change your allegance - the GWS Giants are looking for new members

What am I saying, GWS will be on the bottom of the ladder for years (!)

Re: The National Rugby League Thread of 2012

The Raiders were in the game for about 10 mins. The loss of Campo in the 1st half didn't help, but they had lost the game by then. With such a short turnaround (an example of how the TV rights can disadvantage teams) they needed to go into the second half with a decent lead so 20 - 6 down meant it was never going to happen and in the 2nd half the Raiders never looked in it at all so the fact the Broncos only put on 10 points is a miracle...though that was more to do with some poor finishing by the Broncos, they could have put 50+ on if passes stuck/handling slightly better.

I hope Harrigan gives the refs of this game a serve, they were quite poor. None of them seemed to know what a forward pass was. They let both sides get away with too much and for some reason didn't put a Raider player on report for a clearly dangerous tackle. The refs didn't impact who won, but that doesn't mean they did a great job.

Something has to be down with the left edge defence of the Raiders. Croker is continuing to show he is quite weak in defence and the Raiders need to do something about it. With inexperience outside him and now inside him with Williams coming in the problem isn't going to get better.

Word is that Campo's injury isn't an ACL tear...if it is the Raiders certainly aren't going to threaten the top 8. My dream of a season not heavily marred by injury has completely gone now and I any slim hope I had of a top 8 finish has now really gone.

Maybe. I can't even think of changing my support from the Eels.

Not really that disappointed by Sunday's game.

Nah. I already have a team that I kinder support in the AFL ... and it ain't Collingwood.

^ Hawthorne. Well kind of. And in the past also West Coast Eagles. But don't know about any of the players, nor do I watch them on TV. When I was in Melbourne in 2010, I went to Brisbane Lions vs Western Bulldogs, with my brother in law (who supports Geelong)

As I'm heading to Melbourne this weekend. Not sure if I'm going to any games, as my next two planned visits, I won't have time and season will be over. Plus conventions are better than sport.

^ None. That was last weekend. I'm visiting family, as it's mum's birthday this weekend. I could attended last weekend, when Supanova was on, but out of the big 3 cons ... Supanova I found are the worst. There were only two guests I was really interested in ... being EJO and Wil Wheaton.

Crap, Campo is out for the season. Top 8 is now out of my mind for the team.

Another loss. Didn't watch the game (no TV atm), but it looks that last 20 minutes were incredible scoring 30 points, and still lose the game by one point.

Raiders were their own worst enemy against the Sharks...not that Carney's kicking game didn't hurt. He got them a lot of repeat sets. However, if you can't hold the ball and gift the opposition around 2/3 of possession you deserve to be flogged.

Only good news is Dugan wasn't injured in his return.

Raiders were again pretty woeful and were only saved from a hammering by the fact that the Eagles decided that they wanted to blow 90% of their scoring opportunities to keep it close.

I have to know hope that the Titans, Panthers or Eels problems continue to save the Raiders from the wooden spoon given the way that the Raiders don't look like they belong in the top grade.

The result on Friday night didn't bother me, then next day - it wasn't on my mind. Other interests are now more important to me.
