Canberra brace for 'one of the hardest seasons'

Ricky Stuart is determined to see his club command more respect from rugby league broadcasters and success in "one of the hardest seasons ever for a Canberra Raiders team" looms as the perfect way to get it. The Raiders have been brushed aside like the poor cousin and shunned from marquee Thursday and Friday night timeslots despite being NRL premiership favourites and grand finalists of 2019. The Raiders will play just three free-to-air games in a revamped 20-round fixture this year, while the Brisbane Broncos will play 15 of their games on Channel Nine. Canberra were initially slated to play eight games on the free-to-air network this year in a shift chief executive Don Furner hoped would bolster the club's bottom line. But that figure has been slashed to three games despite Canberra being installed by bookmakers as premiership favourites following their heroic run to the decider last year.
