    No wonder the Raiders weren’t too fussed when Wighton left..
    Ethan Strange has a bright future!

      It's ironic that supporters of other clubs complain about the Roosters "poaching" young talent. We seem to lose a lot of them when they have developed.

        Hope he enjoys playing under Ricky Stuart.

          He will learn how to whinge, play for penalties and blame the ref for his losses at least

Brandon Smith has joined them with his 30m kicks early in the tackle count from deep inside our own territory.

              Who was that young half that kicked the 30/10 in the trial game?


              Don’t forget they are now too small to tackle the big guys once they are isolated particularly walker who just waves his arm out and then doesn’t chase let’s hope Sandton smith is back soon

                Sorry, but that’s a ludicrous statement. Walker has consistently put his body on the line in defence, ang he is usually one of the first to chase in cover.

                  I think you are confusing Sam Walker with Dom Young. I can see why. They look very similar.

                    Eh, can’t keep them all.. Sam Walker is our future and as good as strange has looked I dare say Walker was even more impressive when he first came onto the scene.. I have full faith the club will find the right half partner for when keary retires so no need to cry I’ve spilt milk… good luck to strange but we have lost far bigger talent in the past and will lose way better talent in the future.

                      True. We have a few top players mixed in with very ordinary - mediocre ones. With another exit of top players most who are irreplaceable, our mediocre players will dominate the team until we can rebuild. Isn’t Toups leaving too? And still no long kicker which is putting us at a huge disadvantage.

                        Sounds like Heath L'esteange's twin brother.

                        Bit like how old mate Nathan Aster had a Greek brother called Braith.

                          Not in my opinion I didn’t say he didn’t put his body on the line he just isn’t big enough to be effective. If you want a good example of what I am taking about have a good look at the Manly game

                            Yes you did. You said "particularly walker who just waves his arm out". What else did you mean by that statement?

                              Poor Tyler, suffered a hand injury, fractured finger/thumb or both... out of action for a bit.
