Raiders fined $150,000 over Wagga match
« on: December 07, 2018, 04:28:40 AM »
Canberra have reportedly been fined $150,000 by the ACT government for planning to hold a home NRL match in Wagga next year.

The Canberra Times reports the Raiders planned the match on May 4 to give regional fans a chance to see a game, but the Territory government say the plan breaches a deal to play all matches in the capital.

NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro was furious about the decision, especially given his state has committed $4 million towards the Raiders' new $19 million base at Braddon.
