Going to make a loss either way

It's a good price and an encouragement for folks to get out there.

It is the Sharks current home ground so there should be plenty of Sharks supporters.

So I’m guessing the purchase of sharks tickets will enable you access to the double header?

Canberra Raiders carrying history on their shoulders as they look to create their own

In 2021, each of the Raiders players and staff members has a number on the sleeve of their Captain’s Run shirt. The number of a past player who inspires and drives the current group to success.

At the start of the season, each of the players selected a former player they’d like to represent, whether it be due to playing the same position or it being someone they know personally. The number not only appears on their Captain’s Shirt but also their notepads, folders and locker rooms on matchdays.

What an awesome insight to the current squad. Pretty cool to see some of the names selected: Picker, Fensom, Campo, TLL, Hetherington, etc.

Well done Titans. This is the kind of thing Raiders media have been doing for the last couple of years. When you’re a low profile team who don’t get a lot of media coverage, it’s well worth trying something a bit fresh.

Young, James and Kris all fit to play the Titans: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart

Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart says that Ryan James, Sebastian Kris and Hudson Young have been cleared to take their places in the side to face the Gold Coast Titans at Kogarah Oval on Saturday night.

James and Kris clashed heads in the 13th minute of last Saturday's clash with the Warriors - and were ruled out of the rest of that game because of concussion. Joe Tapine (ankle ligaments) and Curtis Scott (ribs) were also amongst the casualties in Saturday's match - and were ruled out on Tuesday for one to two weeks.

"Fortunately the guys who suffered the head knocks last week have been cleared to play," Stuart said.

"Unfortunate news with Curtis Scott and Joe Tapine. They're probably a couple of weeks away from being cleared again, but we're going to be playing it safe so early in the season."

Hudson Young suffered a knee problem late in the Round 2 win over the Sharks, and was rested from the Warriors match. He's now right to go.

"He was very close last week," Stuart said.

"Again, protecting Hudson from wanting to play [against the Warriors], where he just wasn't 100 per cent fit was a little bit too much of a risk.

"I didn't want him to re-injure it and then be a longer period on the sideline. So one week out got him back to play this week."

Stuart is happy with the depth that he has been able to draw upon, but admits he'd like to see some better form from some of the players who find themselves outside the top 21.

"The players that are back in NSW Cup, they have to be better too," Stuart said.

"We played very poorly last week in NSW Cup and they have to show some responsibility there towards aiming up to play well, to force their way back into the top squad."

"Dunamis Lui did that. Dunamis comes back into the squad for Joe Tapine."

The Raiders had a very tough afternoon against the Warriors, after being reduced to 14 men - and 13 fit men. Stuart says that he's given his players some time to recuperate this week.

"We've trained well and we've had a pretty good week of preparation," he said.

"We took different measures at the start of the week in our Tuesday session. It was a lot lighter."

"We looked at the load of the players and made sure that we didn't burn them out early in the week, in regards to their workloads at training."

"We had to make sure that mentally and physically we were going to be right at the end of the week."

One positive from Saturday's the last gasp loss to the Warriors, was way in which hookers Josh Hodgson and Tom Starling worked together. Starling was a late inclusion on the bench, and made a good impact when he was injected into the game - with Hodgson then taking on the role of a roving forward.

"It's a good little combination, with the speed of the game, having the two No. 9s being able to back each other up in their periods of play at dummy half," Stuart said.

"Tommy's a great addition to our club and our squad. He's electric out of dummy half. He's a tough defender in the middle. It always excites me when I get Tommy out on the field with the way he attacks."

The Raiders were scheduled to play the Titans at Robina this weekend - and to travel to the Gold Coast on Thursday. However, the Titans have temporarily relocated to Sydney due to the COVID situation in south east Queensland. The match will now take place at Kogarah as part of a double header.

The Raiders held their captain's run at Kippax on Good Friday morning.

"Travelling yesterday to the Gold Coast was the plan," Stuart said.

"Obviously staying back training here and now busing to Sydney is the only change. It won't affect our preparation at all."

Stuart is wary of the in-form Titans.

"They're another big team. They've got some big wide runners. They're a very good attacking team, a lot of speed," he said.

"Again, defensively we've got to be up and we've got to score our amount of points."

"I was really happy with our attack last week, I thought we attacked very well. We stuck to a solid plan."

"We've just got to probably tighten up our defence a little bit. Last week there was certainly an excuse there, with the amount of fatigue we had because of the very unique scenario of only having one player left after 13 minutes of play."

A report for The Greenhouse

Three HIAs could become common: Stuart

Ricky Stuart says that there should not only be an 18th man introduced to the game, but a 19th man - a forward and a back - providing cover from HIAs and foul play. He also says the reserves should be experienced, not emerging players.

Titans players won't be pulled from Satuday's match

Players who breached the NRL's COVID-19 protocols won't be pulled from this weekend's games after Gold Coast became the latest club to hit turbulence.

Titans captain Kevin Proctor was reportedly spotted playing the pokies in a Sydney pub on Thursday night without a mask in a breach of the game's rules. Proctor was joined by three other Titans players while in the venue.
