AUDIO: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart speaks about some pre-season woes

SG Ball sackings. We’re not running a crèche here. I know there’s some disappointed parents, but if those players want to play in the local competition and show me they want to be a Raider, they get a second chance.

DUI charges. I did not say that Corey Harawira-Naera and Corey Horsburgh would not play Round 1. The NRL will do what the NRL’s got to do.

NRL bubble bursting has knock on effect for Soliola



The NRL Bubble has burst, allowing Sia Soliola to return to one of his loves - helping the homeless. He's back working at the Early Morning Centre in Civic - providing take-away meals to the ACT's less fortunate.

"Things have sort of had to change a little bit with what we've had to do at the Early Morning Centre. It's a shame we can't get everyone in indoors and serve everyone personally, but we still get to do takeaways.

I'm reserved about our back 5. But I'm hopeful.


If they fire we'll be hard to stop.

Come on Curtis, have a great year mate.

Just hope Ryan stays injury free. He seems to have fitted in well

Who replaces John Bateman at the Canberra Raiders?

Hudson Young's got the backing of international back-rower Joe Tapine to slot straight in, in place of John Bateman. Young and Corey Harawira-Naera were the two most likely candidates, but an off-season, drink-driving charge could see the latter suspended for the start of the NRL campaign.

"He looks good man. He's been training a bit in the back row. He's looking strong," Tapine said. "I think he'll get the spot personally.

I guess we missed Smelliott's 300th game last time out, 100 tries in 300 games is pretty fair going.

I'm going to be devastated when he hangs them up, he's had a massive impact

He’s been sensational boney, a real worker with buckets of skill.

Will be remembered as one of our finest when he’s finished.

I gave him full wraps for that game. Clearly buggered and out on his feet and getting targeted in defence- he had nothing left for attack but he just kept turning up to make every tackle.

You need to upload them using Tapatalk. Or you can embed Twitter, Instagram or Facebook posts, which include the pic, using the media code (far right symbol on the code menu).

Given you have an iPhone, it would make sense to download Tapatalk on the Apple App Store. That gives you mobile device access to The Greenhouse (and a whole pile of other forums, if you wanted). Once you have it, you can then easily upload a photo into a post.
