Re: Raiders set to avoid country fine for shifting Canberra games

No way AFL should be getting so much more Government funding than The Raiders when the Raiders do so much more to support Canberra both financially, community wise and to promote the city.

Re: Canberra Raiders to build $19m centre of excellence in Braddon

Raiders players are seeking Contract increases so they can afford Beers at nearby Bentspoke brewery.



PS Bentspoke beers are worth the money. And you can then wander down to the new training centre and teach the Raiders how to throw 20m spiral passes left and right.

Re: Raiders half Aidan Sezer joins Huddersfield Giants on two year deal

Sezer is definitely an NRL level halfback. Just nothing beyond a base level half.

But Sam Williams is not an NRL level halfback. But he’s just a quarter rung below that level and one of the best at State Cup level.
