Women in League Round
It’s Women in League round this weekend as the Raiders acknowledge and celebrate the important role that women play in rugby league.
Raiders celebrate Women in League
Throughout the week the Raiders have been highlighting the roles of women across grassroots and professional rugby league and that will be the case once again this Sunday.
Yvette Croft will be the Viking Ambassador on Sunday. Yvette is the current Chair of the Canberra Women’s Rugby League committee and is a long-term contributor to rugby league within the Canberra region.
Last home game
It’s the final home game of the regular season and like always it’s great for the team to play in front of a passionate lime green crowd!
After playing the Warriors in the second round of season, it feels fitting to be playing them on our turf in the penultimate game of the regular season.
Match Highlights: Raiders secure win over Warriors
A lot has changed since then, including Jack Murchie now plying his trade for the Warriors.
Number One battle
It’s a battle that you can’t look past every time we take on the Warriors. CNK v RTS.
Charnze has continued his rapid rise in the NRL in 2020 as he brought up his 50th NRL match in last week’s win against the Dragons.
Nicoll-Klokstad has seven tries so far this season, with three try assists and is averaging 178 running metres per match.
Tuivasa-Sheck has produced similar numbers for the Warriors with five tries, three try assists and an average of 222 running metres per game.
Eyes on the top four
Although we will need other results to go our way, a win this weekend will see our hunt for a place in the top four continue.
As of the end of Round 18, Parramatta are two competition points ahead but do have a slightly worse for and against so the Raiders will be looking to keep the pressure on.
With the news that the ACT Government has increased the stadium capacity to 6,000, it will be a great atmosphere at GIO Stadium.
In addition to the crowd, the family friendly timeslot of a 2pm kick-off will be pleasing for lots of Raiders supporters.
The Viking Clap will also have a few extra decibels of volume.
Papalii at home
Josh Papalii will be in action for the first time since he inked a new deal to see him remain at Raiders until at least 2024.
Since making his debut almost a decade ago, Papalii has consistently been one of the best performers at the club and has become a mainstay for both state and country.
