Where it's held is irrelevant. As long as it's chock full of Raiders fans it will be a great day.

No idea - I have only been to the SCG once and it was in 2005 for a one dayer. Brad Haddin killed it no doubt. QBN represent.

If you’re not in the the Members, Brewongle Concourse or Stand is best IMO... even if it is back off the sideline.

No idea where they’ll put the away fans... but they could easily put them on half way on the eastern side. There will be no shortage of seats at the SCG.

Compare that to the Richmond Club Hotel who have been very accommodating and cant wait to have us back (if it eventuates). Apparently the staff still talk about that pre-game event.
I like that.

The SCG is an awful ground for rugby league.

I think at these oval venues I prefer to be up higher and near the corner because that is the closest to the field of play. If you sit on halfway it feels like there is a suburb between you and the sideline.

I wouldn’t expect they would crack much more than 20k.

Interestingly I am sure we haven’t played at the SCG since the 1987 Grand Final.

That was our first finals series.* Who did we play in that first game? The Eastern Suburbs Roosters.



We lost but we then came back to beat them in the preliminary final.

* I say first finals series but we did play in a midweek playoff in 1984. My understanding is these were no counted as finals. Back in the day you couldn’t miss the finals on points differential so they had a playoff or even playoffs during the week.

Shame we didn't finish third, as the numbers of Raiders fans travelling to Sydney would have been huge... and the fan meet up in Sydney would have been huge. Will be a bit tougher to draw a crowd in Melbourne!

Was tossing up whether to come, just booked my flights. Wife cannot make it so roped in two mates who support the Bulldogs. Will have them decked out in green. Get amongst it if you can! A top 4 finish has been such a rarity for us, only twice in 16 years, time to get behind them!

It will be our finals debut on Saturday.

Segments never made it to finals :(

John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

The Canberra Raiders will be getting behind this event and giving us a plug or two... thanks to the good people at the club for this!

This is what happened in 2016!
