Where was the option to vote Jordan Rapana as best back of 2015?

GE, can you write a letter on behalf of the GH? Would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah a lot of them were like they'd just taken forum posts and added a "?" on the end.
Would have been too obvious if we saw a question like:

Sack Croker, sack Fensom, sack Sticky?

Which player will we miss most and no "none of the above" option.

Cornish - nope
Nicholls - could've been handy depth
Shillo - nope

yeah I went with Nicholls. Did well every chance he got, his form was actually building. Showed offloads leading to breaks, made one himself- more than a polder. Hardly an error to think of. Versatile. We won games when he played. Not a star but a bloody handy 4th prop in your squad- would have complimented Boyd and FPN in your squad perfectly too imo.

Tilse had a good run but was pretty much done as an NRL FG'er.

Shillo has well and truly worn out his welcome. His stats read great in his last month or so I'm sure, but he stunk it up big time, perfect example of- "not everything that can be counted counts; and not everything that counts can be counted".

We should have made Nicholls a better offer.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

I went Nicholls.

Biggest issue was defence. And later, edge defence.

I need to log onto it with a few more IDs though. Where do we get to vote for Todd Carney?

Regardless of where they got their questions from, that was the best-constructed NRL survey I have encountered.

Questions about weak areas, who we shouldn't have let go, BJ's contract etc. might produce results the club might not like.

I wish there was a more accurate way to express answers to questions about the problems with the NRL. I need a thousand words just to get started. If I use bullet points.

It's an outrage that the 2015 GH Survivor can't even get a run in a Canberra Times fan poll.

Ricky Stuart’s Canberra Raiders recruits rue close home game losses

WHEN it comes to which club recruited the best, it’s hard to look past Canberra.

Ricky Stuart may have missed out on snaring James Tedesco and James Tamou, but his 2015 recruitment drive is nothing short of impressive.

The signing of Blake Austin was a smart move, with the former Tiger doing a sensational job replacing Terry Campese.

Then add in English hooker Josh Hodgson — the king of kicking a 40-20 — coupled with power men Frank-Paul Nu’uausala and Iosia Soliola and you’re on to a good thing.
