The Telegraph is warning that Raiders Legend Ricky Stuart is a big chance to return to Canberra next year as coach.
(That’s right Dave, you have the board’s full support)
Let me get out of the way that Stuart as a player was magnificent, inspirational even. It’s hard to imagine the premiership Raiders sides of yesteryear winning [...]
Half time Cowboys 30 Raiders 6 how embarrassing but not for David Furner he still thinks he is a coach but he is the only one who actually thinks that.
A left side defence that still leaks, that 34 tries now and he has no idea how to fix it!
Turning good footballers into bad is what [...]
Foxsports have the astonishing news that the Canberra Raiders have finally won a game.
Sure it was against the Newcastle Knights in hot pursuit of their own losing streak, but a week at the beach appears to have been good for the lilywhites.
Young and old clamour for the head of David Furner to be mounted on a pike in Civic Square.
Fortunately for the embattled coach his management have made a statement on the side getting out of dodge with the status quo intact:
The Canberra Raiders will use a week long camp on the Central Coast this week [...]

(We hear there’s an announcement expected at 2pm today)
Those Canberra Raiders sure can find some whacky ways to end their seasons.
Sky News reports on the latest in which wing Jack Wighton has hurt his toe larking about on a backyard tramp and will now miss the rest of the season.
That’s quite the toe injury.
Just wondering how many Brisbane Broncos Supporters there are in Canberra and surrounds. There always seems to be lots at the game when they come to town. As a Queenslander a lot of friends support them but I was wondering about those outside my friendship group.
Anyway I seeking interest in a Broncos Regional Membership with [...]
South Sydney waltzed through the pansy like Raiders defence yet again (yawn)
Get rid of all the Furner’s not just David or the embarrassment will continue.

Well it looks like it was a lovely day in Manly today. Unless you’re a long suffering Raiders fan as the SMH reports.
The Raiders losing is moving out of the realms of news (even sports news) and becoming another scheduled event on the calendar.
One thing good came out of the embarrassment at the hands of Cronulla it is now one game closer to “the joke masquerading as a coach David Furner” getting the flick.
It has been claimed he has four games left to get it right, oh how I wish that were true, as I somehow think [...]
