NRL Offseason News – Canberra Raiders Off Season Challenge

Canberra Raiders are set for their first off-season game. With trial matches against the Tigers and then later the bulldogs. The games will be held on two consecutive weekends. It is important for the Raiders to get off to a good and gain some confidence as early as possible.

With Ricky Stuart as the coach we are all looking forward to 2023. Rick has been one of the most vocal and emotional coaches of the modern era and wears his heart on his sleeve since the famous interview in which he got fined $10,000. He has become the coach we love at betfresh.

“But we weren’t good. We weren’t good in regards to some of our plays, but it led to fighting and this leads to a bunch of blokes who are busting their ass a bunch of blokes who are just trying so hard and making a lot of simple little errors that are costing us. But then when you get a display from the referees like that today which you often get when you’re in this type of scenario that we are doesn’t help. In my days I have seen some good ones but my gosh that was a shocker. I’ll be labeled as a whinger but I wouldn’t be protecting my players if I didn’t come out and say it .”
