Canberra Raiders captain Jarrod Croker might have to give super fan Simon Tayoun's boss a call, just to say thanks. Because when you can hear "literally every word" echoing from the stands when you're playing at a near-empty 25,000-seat stadium, imagine the sound of Tayoun's drum during the game. Tayoun's boss told him to take the day off so he could travel down from Sydney to watch the Raiders face St George Illawarra on Friday in their first match at Canberra Stadium in 112 days. Canberra's highly-anticipated homecoming will play out in front of 1500 ticketed spectators and 230 corporates who will be limited to two people in an open box, and six in an indoor suite - provided two people sit outside in front of the suite with four inside. About 270 "participants" - including players, coaching staff, security, catering staff and event staff will see the capacity nudge the 2000 mark as the NRL rebuilds after a coronavirus-induced shutdown.
