08 Apr, 2010 08:02 AM
Raiders chief Don Furner believes his club deserves more free-to-air coverage, after promising ratings during last week’s loss to Wests Tigers at Canberra Stadium.
More than 723,000 people tuned in to Channel Nine to watch the Sunday afternoon fixture. It was the Raiders’ first free-to-air home game in two years and the third time they had been free to air since the start of the 2009 season.
‘‘A good crowd of over 17,000 at the ground and a TV audience of 723,000 shows people want to see the Raiders more on free-to-air,’’ Furner said. ‘‘We have shown Sunday afternoon footy is popular here in Canberra on free-to-air and we would love the chance to feature at home on a Friday night as well.’’
