    A confirmed 3yr signing, too. I  thought you were suggesting it was just a rumour? He looked good last year for Souths when Latrell was injured. Is the plan still to play JAC there in '22? I know we threw Cotric there for a stint when Wighton, back in the days he was wearing #1, was suspended and it didn't work. I'm still in disbelief that the Raiders let BOTH Leilua, who is a rugby league savant, and Cotric go in the same season only to re-sign a 30yr Jarrod Croker, who is now coming back from shoulder surgery btw.

    * Not-so-fun fact: Jarrod Croker was born on September 11-you know the conspiracy theory about it being an inside job? 
    @-) :-@ :-$

    The kennel and half it's posters(some obsessed people there WOW)forever bang on about this potential gun Averillo who they think may be a super fb or 5/8 but is a complete rookie(albeit with very good ability supposedly)and to me its questionable he is at NRL level right now..especially for a spine position..may have a go at 5/8 but I'm sceptical.
    So to answer your question I think Allan will be fullback this year obviously(agree he went bloody well covering at Souths)as for 22 maybe JAC stays on the wing or there has been mention of some roving around..good dilemma to have but one thing would be Allan is definitely better at fb lacks a little pace to be a winger..could do centre with Cotric in 22? Good to have options Barrett has some licence to get them improving and be ready to press the go button in 22..hopefully!
    Hoppa probably on the outer end of this year.DWZ they need to offload if they can he is OVERPAID and lately an underachiever may do well this year.Looking forward to March, some light at the end of the tunnel I see.
    Also going after Tigers centre/winger Momorivoski or were, unsure if that cools now Allan is on the books.

    Strange how clubs do things isn't it, although JC has been a loyal servant and great clubman he must be getting close to past it?

    I'd probably be ok with everyone getting paid IF we'd won in '19. But we didn't and if the aim is still to win a comp, then players have to take a haircut. The fact the contract details aren't known makes me believe he was looked after which pisses me off. The Raiders refused to pay Bateman, Cotric and even Leilua to some extent altho I'm not sure how serious they were about re-signing Joey.
