With the Canberra Raiders kicking off their season tomorrow night against the Sea Eagles at Brookvale, here are some observations:
— It’s a mediocre start to the year for Raiders fans with Foxtel. The game is being broadcast delayed at 9:20pm. The other 7:30pm game is Sharks v. Panthers, so there was never a chance that the Sydney Foxtel market which Canberra is a part of was going to receive the Canberra game live.
— In round 1 last year, the Raiders defeated the Sea Eagles 27-14.
— As of 6:00pm on Friday 16 March, the Raiders have themselves on top of the NRL ladder, on their website 🙂

— At the same time, the NRL website had the Raiders listed as third on the ladder. I have no idea where this ladder is, as I lost the page, and cannot find it again. Perhaps it will re-appear after tonight’s games are complete.
— The Raiders website looks (and works) significantly better than last year. The Sea Eagles website looks bloody horrible.
