Parking will be a nightmare. Hope to make it to Canberra by 7 that's about the best I can do.
You could park out at Gungahlin and get the bus from there. Might relieve some stress.

First time poster - the occasion calls for it. Was waiting for the nrl account holder allocation to come through, but so far zip. If anyone has a NEEDMEMBERSCODE or NEEDTELECOMCODE with 2 spare seats a PM would be a godsend thanks
The code you need now is NRL too easy!

Re: Preliminary Final tickets

What a roller coaster - that was fast and furious!!
We got seats in what surely must be the back row of the grandstand, Bay 28TT. probably because we wanted 8 seats together.
The main thing is being there - it’s going to be amazing!! Go Raiders!

Re: 2020 membership pack

Yep, just got mine, too. Not a fan of the cap being navy. It should be bright Raiders green, and then Canberra Stadium would be a sea of green!

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

Just a thought, but are we now in a position to attract more third party deals, with the success we have had this year? It opens up more possibilities for boosting the salaries of certain players so they will be able to stay.
I hoping that’s the case.

Thank goodness we dont have that muppet Klein behind the whistle. We have the best team possible.

Personally, I think it’s totally irresponsible of a CEO to be urging the fans to behave in such a way. Sure, urge to refs to be fair.

By the way, for the curious, Croker only needs 92 points to make it to 2000. If we make the GF, he'd need 10 points a game to get it this season.
