Canberra Raiders to take six home games to England

The Canberra Raiders have announced plans to take six home games to the North of England in 2020.

With four English players in the starting side on Friday night against the Knights, a phone conference with English official’s post-match sealed the deal, with the Raiders to head to Bradford, Wigan and Hull in 2020 for a six week stretch.

I just saw this on the official Raiders Facebook page, can’t believe it hasn’t been mentioned here yet.

And complete Fergus meltdown in 3... 2... 1...

Took it too far
Should have said to the bush

Also at this point we might as well play out of old Trafford, it would be a home game for most of our team haha
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers and Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

The funniest part of this prank is every single comment on the instagram is some sherlock correcting people who thought it was real.
