Round 2: The Final Word

Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart is looking forward to playing in front of a home crowd on Sunday as the green machine return to GIO Stadium in 2018.

"It's always good to play in front of our home crowd and we're very fortunate that we have a very vocal crowd and I know that the players are looking forward to it." Stuart said.

Stuart also claimed that his squad aren't dwelling on their previous loss as they aim to register their first win for the season.

"The team have bounced back very well, the first thing we talked about after the game last Sunday were how our emotions are. Playing so well and then losing at the end can knock you around mentally but we haven't spoken about it as a squad and I've got no dramas going into this game that the last game will affect that."
