Newcastle Knights utility Connor Watson braces for heavy traffic against Canberra Raiders

HE is Newcastle’s smallest player, and livewire utility Connor Watson expects to be targeted in defence by Canberra’s heavyweights during Sunday’s showdown at GIO Stadium.

“Being a little bloke, you have to make most of tackles because they see the height difference in the line and run at you,” Watson said on Thursday. “Every time I’ve played hooker, I’ve been run at a fair bit. But it’s NRL, it’s first grade.

Shannon Boyd says Canberra Raiders won’t slip up again

Canberra Raiders prop Shannon Boyd says a lesson’s been learnt from Sunday’s round one NRL loss to the Gold Coast Titans.

“We should have put the foot on the throat a bit earlier. It should never have been that close,” Boyd said. “We have to move on from that game. I know we have to be a bit better and win those tighter games.”

Charlie Gubb excited to make his Canberra Raiders debut

Charlie Gubb will make his Canberra Raiders debut off the bench against Newcastle on Sunday, while his partner Charlene will debut for her rugby union team on Saturday.

"I'm just really excited to get out there. I was 18th man on the weekend [and] I really wanted to play against the Titans, but I've got my opportunity now through Taps' misfortune," Charlie said. "I just want to do my job and hopefully secure my spot ... that's what I came here for so it's just time to do my job."

This was from a SMH article on the 4th

The Viking Clap will happen before every home game, and Hush legend and Green Machine song writer Les Gock is slated to blow the Viking horn - which will now be placed on the field - in round two.

NRL: Canberra Raiders have moved on from Gold Coast Titans loss: Ricky Stuart

Canberra coach Ricky Stuart says emotions have been kept in check at the Raiders following their first-round NRL defeat. Stuart also confirmed Joe Tapine would miss up to four weeks after the forward dislocated his thumb against the Titans.

"After playing so well and then losing on the back end of a game, it can knock you around so it's important to deal with it," Stuart said on Friday.

Canberra Raiders prop Charlie Gubb unfazed by rare NRL double

Canberra NRL forward Charlie Gubb is not one to hype up a situation. Gubb has been selected to debut for his new club off the bench against Newcastle on Sunday night at GIO Stadium.

"I just want to do my job and hopefully secure my spot. That's what I came here for so it's just time to do my job," Gubb said.

"The more matches he gets the more game time he'll get," Stuart said.

"He'll become more used to the players and more accustomed to that role for us."

I agree entirely with you Sticky and it's why there should have been another trial match for Havili to gain those extra minutes. It is a crucial position. Not to mention our defensive woes. Run down and beaten from 18-0 and then 24-6. Deja vu 2017.

Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart backs Aidan Sezer to return to halves soon

Aidan Sezer is doing a job as back-up hooker, but Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart says it won't be long before he returns to start in the halves.

"Aidan's in the wings now doing a job for the team, but he won't be too far away from coming into the starting team as one of the halves," Stuart said. "So it's up to Sam and Blake to keep their position and it's great to have that competitiveness in a very important position.
