Time to Face *the enemy*

well for me anyway my most hated team not just because of 89 but because of a hell of alot of other games they beat us in that we were the better team in.

this is the enemy we haven’t beaten them down there since 05

forget about the top 8 if we win this game thats worth just as much as a top 8 spot for me
lets smash the scum of the NRL!

Yeah there seems to be a mutual hatred between the two sides.

Personally, I don’t mind the Raiders. I lived there for the past 5 years and has quite a lot to do with them over that time.

I went to Canberra Stadium regularly to watch them and cheer them on.

However that’s a different story when they are playing us. 😈

Yep I remember that game They attacked our line a few sets in a row but we kept them out and defended very well that game.

2007 was a dream year until round 20.

I hate the team and that dump.

Last year got hit with hail to boot during the NYC game

Yeah that was a shocker…

Not to mention first grade were up 24-10 at half time and lost 30-24 😒

I’m no fan of the village. Lived there for 18 months which was painful and I don’t care how good the roads and facilities are down there. It’s painfully cold in winter and you’re almost 2 hours from the nearest beach in summer.

The Tigers seem to go ok down there though, even when we have lost it hasn’t been by much. I think the Tigers can get the points on Sunday if we keep Campese quiet. He’s a very hot and cold player so hopefully he’s cold this week.

Can we hire Mathew Head off the Dragons for 40 mins?

We will promise to return him at half time…

forgot about 07 Farah played halfback that game didnt he?

Yes, from memory I think it was the first time he was moved to halfback.

I have bad memorys from down in Canberra too, but i like the Raids….just not this week.

2004 i went with mates (Raids supporters). By Half Time i couldnt feel my fingers but quick “MacGyver” like thinking, i put my fingers in a hot bucket of chips and revived them.Then on Full time, we score to win the match right in front of me…untill it was called a forward pass!!! Which it wasnt. I then went out on the town with a couple of Raiders players who couldnt believe the refs call either.

That was '03 mate. I was on telly jumping around like crazy thinking we’d won. Then reality sinks in. 😆 I got to go in the sheds after the game. The boys were shattered. Escpecially Covell, who had a shocker with the boot.

In '04 we get beaten 36-24 or something, which wasn’t too bad considering we couldn’t score any points at that time!

was 04 the famous Shayne Hayne penalty count game?
