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 to prepare for their round 14 match against the Knights in Newcastle.

The camp is aimed at bringing the playing group together and working on improving their current position.
Raiders Chairman John McIntyre urged members to stick by the club and the club was just as disappointed with the results as the members are.
“We aren’t happy with the position we’re in at the moment, but I know the coaching staff and playing group are 100 per cent committed to turning things around on the field,” Mr McIntyre said. “This camp is in place for the group to come together and determine why they’re not getting these results and the board and I support the initiative.”
McIntyre also confirmed that rumours and speculation regarding the Head Coach were just that and said David Furner would remain the Coach of the club.
“There has been no board meeting scheduled regarding David Furner’s position and he remains the Head Coach of the Canberra Raiders.”
