The Canberra Raiders have turned to a mixed martial arts champion to finetune their grappling as they leave no stone unturned in a bid to snap a premiership drought. The Green Machine called on MMA light heavyweight and Glasgow Commonwealth Games judo representative Duke Didier to ignite their pre-season campaign on Tuesday. A chance meeting with Raiders coach Ricky Stuart saw Didier lured to the club's state of the art Braddon headquarters - which boast a dedicated wrestling room. Didier leapt at the chance to help his hometown team, as if there would be any hesitation for a fighter nicknamed the "Duke of Canberra" who wears green and black in the cage. "It's my duty as a Canberran sportsman, if I can help the Raiders win a premiership in any way, shape or form, my services are always available," Didier laughed.
