Raiders Rumble! Raiders vs Dragons Round 15 Preview

BY ROB Round 15 finds the Raiders starting the week with a win in their pocket, something of a rarity in 2021.

Raiders Rumble! Raiders of Ngunnawal Country vs Roosters of Gadigal Land Round 12 Indigenous Round Preview

BY ROB For a team doing so poorly in 2021 the Raiders have an awful amount of noise around them, a wailing din which which peaked yesterday with the sudden release of struggling half George Williams. While Williams certainly wasn’t the model of diplomacy he was nowhere near as appalling as the ham-fisted club officials … More Raiders Rumble!

Raiders Rumble! Raiders vs Storm Round 11 Preview

BY ROB The poor Raiders just can’t catch a break in 2021.

Raiders Rumble! Raiders vs Rabbitohs Round 8 Preview

BY ROB To be bluntly honest with you, dear reader, this Rumble should have been titled Raiders vs Raiders.

I often think about young emerging players having their … More Raiders Rumble! Raiders vs Rabbitohs Round 8 Preview

Raiders Rumble! Raiders vs Cowboys Round 7 Preview

BY ROB The last two weeks in Raider-land have been gruelling stuff from a fans perspective. The sliding doors moment is definitely Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad getting sidelined during the Panthers game – after that it’s been a steep downhill drop, punctuated by two first half tries against the Eels. So Ricky went down to the garden … More Raiders Rumble! Raiders vs Cowboys Round 7 Preview

Raiders Rumble! Raiders vs Panthers Round 5 Preview

BY ROB The Raiders held out against an enthusiastic but uneven Titans side in round 4, arguably the toughest test yet. Round five makes last week look like an opposed training session. The Panthers are flying high, playing fast-paced, hi NRG footy exactly the way V’landys wants it. The Raiders, however, are on a different … More Raiders Rumble! Raiders vs Panthers Round 5 Preview
