Horsburgh will join a fairly exclusive club of Raiders Rangas if he gets a run. There is obviously Toungy but beyond that I have to go back to John McLeod as a strawberry blonde in 82’. Who am I missing? Who else has broken the golden rule of fashion and combined red and green without a colour in between??
How on EARTH do you forget Joel Monaghan or Joel Edwards??
Matt Gafa too!

Yeah a couple of big oversights there! I had a feeling I missed a couple of obvious ones.

Tallis calls on Canberra Raiders Josh Papalii to release the 'Raging Bull'

Gorden Tallis says Josh Papalii needs to be the "Raging Bull" of the Raiders forward pack.

"He's stepped up at rep level, he's played great for Queensland the last few years, he's played for his country," Fox Sports analyst Tallis said. "It's time for Josh week-in, week-out to lead this side. Josh is an enforcer, he never takes a backwards step and is probably not far off a leadership role.

Canberra Raiders assistant coach Andrew McFadden better in second-coming

Andrew McFadden knows what it's like in the hot seat. It's why he knows he comes home to Canberra as a better coach and better able to help Stuart.

"The six years in New Zealand were unbelievable for my development for a couple of reasons," McFadden said. "Obviously the experience of being an NRL head coach in that I got exposed to things that I hadn't been before - all that stuff that you don't get a whole lot of exposure as an assistant coach.

I think he's right. Papa can be a little bit easy going at times- he made his name when Furner (one of his master-strokes actually, he deserves credit) forced (previously fairly mild mannered) Papa to go out and target Gallen all game, at his peak. He got aggro, didn't back down and a legend was born.

I think he needs to bring that mongrel more often.

Canberra Raiders co-captains Jarrod Croker and Josh Hodgson explain how the new leadership team will work

Q: Raiders coach Ricky Stuart said he's increased the pressure on the leaders this season to take the club to the next level. What does that mean and what has changed?

A: Jarrod Croker: Every successful club needs good leaders and needs a good leadership group. It's just about growing as leaders and growing as a group. In the past, it's been myself, Sia [Soliola] and Hodgo seen as the three main leaders. If one of us three is barking orders all day, every day it can get a bit monotonous.

Home away from home: The story of the Canberra Raiders' English stars

John Bateman could so easily have ended up in prison. Gone would be those precious moments with his daughter, his Super League titles and the NRL debut he will make for the Canberra Raiders on the Gold Coast on Sunday.

Daily phone calls to his daughter mean home never feels too far away - not even in the leafy surrounds of Barton as Canberra's four adopted Englishmen recreate The Beatles' famous Abbey Road cover.

Josh Hodgson says Canberra Raiders ready for clash of the Titans

Canberra Raiders co-captain Josh Hodgson has declared the Green Machine is ready to go for their season opener against the Gold Coast Titans.

"If you're not ready now you never will be after three months of pre-season," he said on Wednesday. "We're all good and ready to go. Everyone's just really excited for the year to be back again, it's been a long old off-season."

Soward's Power Rankings: Round 1:

10. Canberra Raiders
It wouldn't surprise me if they made the top eight because they've got talent but they don't know how to win close games. Until they sort out their halves they'll live in that bracket of teams from eight to 12 on the ladder. Jack Wighton at five-eighth has a lot on his shoulders.

NRL Tipping: Round 1 - what the experts are saying:

Titans v Raiders
Both sides will play a lot of football and ask a lot of questions. I would like to see the Titans be a bit more consistent and be a top-eight side, I would love to see them in the finals. Having Mal Meninga up there will breathe a bit of confidence into the whole club. For the Raiders, I'm very excited with the prospect of Jack Wighton playing at five-eighth. He's a wonderful running player – he reminds me a lot of Laurie Daley's frame as a running back who can take on any defender. Titans by 4

Ex-All Black's son to make NRL debut for Canberra Raiders

Former New Zealand sevens rugby union representative Bailey Simonsson will match his All Black dad when he makes his NRL debut this weekend.

"I've got a real desire to play in the NRL and especially in Canberra with the first side that gave me a chance when I was younger. To be back here and play is a bit of dream."

Michael Ennis anoints Canberra Raiders Josh Hodgson as Cameron Smith’s heir apparent

Canberra’s Josh Hodgson has the potential to become the NRL’s best traditional-style dummy-half, according to former NSW rake Michael Ennis.

“Josh, along with Cameron (Smith), is probably among the best traditional dummy- halves in the game,” Ennis said. “Damien (Cook) - he’s a different style of hooker. He’s explosive and is a real attacking weapon. But your Hodgsons and your Smiths pull and probe oppositions apart.

While I'm on board with ennis being part of the family I hate the hype this brings. He's clearly got a good footy mind, I just hope all the talk that's happened since he's joined hasn't got to the players heads.

I honestly think we are going to get beat convincingly this weekend. Our defence in the trials gave me no basis to be confident. Maybe it was teething pains but to let teams like the eels and bulldogs put 20 on you over 40 mins in successive weeks is a major concern

So it’s actually a furphy that Simonsson played 7s for New Zealand. He played in the ‘b’ team while the top team was at the commonwealth games.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Hmmm could be beneficial also. Raising the bar on the players own expectations. We've been used to being half forgotten, underdogs, overlooked etc down here for so long. Meanwhile Sydney/Brisbane players get built up. Could help the players see and pursue excellence a bit more.

Might help get a few players into origin or get more slack off referees at least.

And that's the kind of attitude that encourages mediocrity. Nobody was half forgetting, underestimating or overlooking us after we finished second a few years ago, the following year many experts had us tipped to be top 4 or even win the whole thing!

Two absolutely mediocre seasons in a row where we compeltely bottled it and missed the 8 have got us back where we (deservedly) belong in the eyes of punters. None of my non-Raiders mates even remotely rate our team, and you can't blame them.

It's up to us, and us alone to dig ourselves out of this mindset, and I firmly believe the 2019 squad and coaching staff are more than suited for the task at hand!!

Regardless i'm getting more confident we'll win. The players have put such an emphasis on this game that they'll be scrapping the entire 80 I reckon.

The problem could be the thud 5 days later. But i'll worry about that uppercut next week.

Canberra Raiders determined to avoid Gold Coast repeat

It's the game that defined the Canberra Raiders' season and they're determined to avoid a repeat in their Gold Coast return on Sunday.

"It's just about round one for us and getting off to a good start and getting away with the two points," Jarrod Croker said on Thursday. "We traditionally haven't had a great start the last couple of years. We've left ourselves chasing our tails a little bit too much in the last couple of years.

Croker wants Raiders' home rocking again

Jarrod Croker has a mission to get Canberra's GIO Stadium rocking again. To truly do that, the Green Machine need to knock off the Titans on the Gold Coast this Sunday night ahead of consecutive NRL home games back in the nation's capital.

"We want to start well up there, get the two points and really get Canberra rolling."

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'm real excited about this game.

We've been hearing all the positive news out of the club.

I'll be jumping out of my skin Sunday arvo, hanging out for kickoff.

Where is Matt's Match Ups??? :?
The only one you need to worry about is:
