  1. Sezer - Raiders: Canberra Raiders halfback Aidan Sezer has a battle on his hands to stay in the club’s senior squad. Despite his inspired form which has seen the high flying Raiders win two on the trot, his future at the club from the Capital is uncertain. With Origin star Jack Wighton and England No. 7 George Williams both signed on, it means Sezer will battle for a spot in the halves with two of Canberra’s star players. The Raiders also wish to keep Sam Williams on the books which poses the salary cap issue in 2020 for the high flying club. Sezer appears unfazed by the new signings and has labelled his focus on the run into the finals for the Raiders. “Next year is a long way away, anything can happen in footy and I’m just trying to perform for the club. I’ve been here four years now so whatever happens, happens. It’s out of my control,”
  2. Canterbury will take an NRL game to Perth for the next three years as the club plans on where to take home games during the ANZ Stadium redevelopment. A year after hosting their season-opener at HBF Park, the Bulldogs on Tuesday confirmed the Western Australian venue will be home for one game per year until 2022. .
  3. Panthers forward Spencer Leniu has signed a contract extension with Penrith that will see him remain with the club until at least the end of the 2021 season. “I’m so grateful and humbled by the opportunity to commit my future to the club,” Leniu told penrithpanthers.com.au. “Panthers has been home for me since I moved from New Zealand, so to continue my journey here is truly a blessing.”
  4. Penrith Panthers forward Viliame Kikau has been suspended for two matches after being found guilty of a grade one shoulder charge. Kikau had entered a plea of not guilty in regards to the charge and had hoped to have it overturned at the NRL Judiciary hearing on Tuesday night. Instead, Kikau was found guilty by the panel and now faces two matches on the sidelines in what most experts and fans have called a baffling decision. (R19,20)
  5. What a great competition we are having this season. Perhaps its best feature is the good number of people regularly taking part. We've had our ups and downs in terms of results, yes, but our spirit has never weakened and there's no sense of tailing off. Quite the reverse, there's a feeling of building up towards the season finale just a few weeks away now. Good luck this week with your selections, and all the best for the remainder of this 2019 NRL season.
  6. The club that again could, I repeat might possibly, maybe, perhaps, you never know, could defy that logic is Warriors. They have shown a bit of extra bite (pardon the phrase) recently. Of course you’d be daft to put your house on them. Even so ... As you imply they meet plenty of opponents in good form so yes three wins would likely be their limit and that’s not enough. I suppose what I’m saying is that they are their usual selves.
  7. Surely it is the first interpretation. Why think otherwise? JohnM said a number of people, not a number of people on here. Still JohnM’s the one to clarify if you think it necessary.
  8. A good case for presentations to be made at the next home game, assuming there is one. Home fans then rewarded and able to celebrate with their team.
  9. There’s a job with a big challenge. It seems Titans have let it be known they want Justin Holbrook, the St Helens coach, to apply for the job. He could though stay at Saints as they have offered him a two year extension to his contract. I suppose he’ll want to see what’s on offer at Gold Coast.
  10. Just now on Fox Sports Au site: ”St George Illawarra powerbrokers considered 14 coaching options before rewarding Paul McGregor with a two-year contract extension in April. Names like Geoff Toovey, Anthony Griffin, Trent Barrett, Jason Ryles and Adam O’Brien were all considered prior to the board rubberstamping McGregor’s tenure until the end of 2021. With only two victories from their last 11 matches, you’ll be hard pressed finding a Dragons supporter who isn’t currently calling for Mary to be axed.” Well That last bit reflects your thoughts exactly RLW. As you imply the problem goes beyond who the coach is.
  11. BEANIES FOR BRAIN CANCER ROUND WELCOME Just: 1. Name the 8 winning teams 2. How many points will be scored by all the teams added together in R19? (Used as tie breaker) 3. How many HOME wins will there be in the round? When a game is played on the road the first team is taken as the home team. 4. Poll: How many teams will score 30 or more points? Enter in your post and also at the top of the topic. Entries welcome until the first game of the round kicks off
  12. Yes, they are looking beyond Cronk’s retirement announced for the end of this season. Of course Roosters do have Johnson and Townsend who would currently be ahead of him in the queue for team places.
  13. The Sydney Roosters have signed Cronulla Sharks youngster Kyle Flanagan from 2020 on a two-year deal.
  14. Titans struggled but competed to go in at half time only four points behind. Storm just a little cavalier in that first half. Started poorly and completions were poor in the first twenty minutes. To be fair the Storm mistakes mostly came early on. The team changes were likely to be partly responsible. Despite that early error, Cam Smith was the kingpin again. What a superb player. The second half was somewhat better for Storm, though by no means perfect. Still there were some significant changes in the team line up for this game. Their solid defence didn't concede a point in that second period. How much improved is Jarome Hughes? - confident and effective, hard and very mobile. While Titans never gave up, they were increasingly going nowhere, with Storm doing enough to win and win well post Origin. Good to see Tom Eisenhuth back on the pitch for the last quarter of an hour of the game.
