Seiffert Oval on track for Knights trial
Raiders Coach Ricky Stuart and prop Dane Tilse joined Queanbeyan Mayor Tim Overall at Seiffert Oval yesterday, to inspect the ground ahead of the trial match in February against the Knights.
The historic home of the Raiders is currently undergoing $1.1M worth of upgrades to the facility in preparation for the trial, with the first stage of rennovations including a new watering system and ground surface now complete.
Over the next few weeks 2000 new grandstand seats will be installed, along with a new electronic scoreboard and disabled access amenities, in time for the match on February 21.
Stuart spoke about the excitement in taking a game back to the Raiders spiritual home, while Tilse recalled tales from his father Michael, who was one of the original Raiders from the 1982-1983 era.
