I want to add my voice to all those who have given the crowd a rap - wow, you guys were sensational! The cheering was epic, and so glad Rob (?) was there to bang the drum. I think the acoustics in that stadium might help as well- GIO is hopeless for carrying the cheering. Watching on TV there was no...

Re: 2019 Rd 13 V Tigers: Game Day

Thrilling game, 100% effort for 80 minutes, brilliant defence! Great work boys. Proud to be a Raider.
And what about the crowd?? Were there any Tigers supporters there? The cheering was wonderful.

Thanks for creating all the atmosphere, GE. Hope there’s a huge Raiders fan group decked out in Green to cheer the boys home.
Tonight we throw that hoodoo off our back! Bateman and CNK will lead the charge. Our SOO boys are going to be buzzing.

I think the Wagga game will do more for the club than the Magic round, which I think is a total waste of time.
