This is a game we should win. We are at home, Knights are going so-so and have a lot of off field distractions with the whole Tinkler/Bennet saga going on around them. We need to stop this losing run asap and get back on track.

Thought our effort against the Cowboys was much better than against the Panthers, so I think we are getting closer to that break through win. Still far from perfect but it was a good improvement. We had a good chance to win the game and would have had a better chance if Thurston's try was ruled a knock on like it should have been.

We can win this, it has that feel about it. We must win it really. Newcastle are unpredicablte but if you ask me last week was one off from them, I see a long unhappy season ahead for them awhile this coaching merry go round goes on. Can't be great for team moral when Stone is getting shoved to the side out of the blue. Last week would of been the knights players standing up and saying to Wayne 'pick meeee,' I doubt they can keep that up all year. It will be like the Storm scandal last year when they came out really hard on the field the game after it happened but then died off slowly during the year.

My family and I don't spend thousands of dollars a year on memberships to watch a team lose week after week. Fix it or we will just save our money and watch it on TV until they do.

I don't think the club needs threats right now. It is clear they are trying to win but it is just not coming off for whatever reason. You need to remember that we are down on troops, getting jibbed by the reffs and have a very young side.

I hate to be the one who brings this up, but it be that some of our younger players like Croker, Thomson, Vidot, etc... could be experiencing a little bit of the dreaded second year syndrome? They have all been way down on what they were last year. A lot of that would be because of the problems in the halves, but still they have been down on what you would expect.

Raiders stars back for Knights clash

Canberra coach David Furner says stars Alan Tongue and Josh Dugan could return to help arrest the side's five-match NRL losing streak against Newcastle on Sunday.

The Raiders lost their fifth straight match to North Queensland Townsville on Saturday to leave the ACT side bottom of the ladder.

Pundits had tipped the Raiders as one of the contenders for the 2011 title after the side made the finals last season.

But their momentum has stalled since their thumping win over Cronulla in round one.

Furner said captain Tongue (shoulder) and fullback Dugan (calf) need to have a full week of training before they will be considered, but he's hopeful the pair can pull through.

"There would be some changes there, you are looking at quality coming back, we just need to see how they pull up," Furner said.

"It is seeing the players coming through the heavy training schedule at the start of the week."

Dugan reinjured his left calf against the Titans on April 2 but he had progressed well in the past week, Furner said.

"He is still with rehab running at this stage but I believe he did run well on Friday," he said.

"His type of injury needs a full training, full contact so that he is confident he can perform. (And we won't) be in a situation of being down a man during a game."

Halfback Matt Orford could also return depending on his recovery from a back injury suffered two weekends ago at Penrith.

"It is a matter of putting him into full team training and not just rehab training," Furner said.

Raiders co-captain Bronson Harrison said the prospect of several  top-guns returning would lift the side.

"Any inclusions from the injury list would be good," he said.

"It would give us a big boost.

"We are working hard on a lot of things and they are just not working at the moment."

Dugan and Tongue would be a huge boost especially if McCrone is going to be out because of this ref thing. Todd Carney's bump on the ref a couple of weeks ago was much worse yet he walks free? Don't get that one at all.

You would think he will just plead guilty early and be able to play so there shouldn't be an issue with him missing any games. Thank heavens for that too, he is one of the last players we need to lose right now.

Raiders Easter Sunday Family Fun Day
19 April 2011, 1:00 pm

Canberra Stadium is the place to be this Sunday afternoon, when the Canberra Raiders take on the Newcastle Knights at 2.00pm.

The match is being billed by the Raiders as the Easter Sunday Family Fun Day, with a host of special activities scheduled in for the afternoon to entertain the family this Easter long weekend.

The Raiders will be allowing people onto Canberra Stadium following the conclusion of the match, so it’s a great opportunity to come on to the field and kick the footy.

The Raiders NRL squad will also be meeting and greeting fans after the conclusion of the match, with supporters invited to get autographs from their favourite players in the Mal Meninga Lounge following the ‘on the field’ opportunity.

The Easter Bunny will be at Canberra Stadium on Sunday afternoon handing out Easter eggs to people who come along to the game, while at halftime there will be a special performance by the Federation Guard to commemorate ANZAC day on the Monday.

In order to make the day more family friendly the Raiders are offering a special one-off family ticket for the event for just $65 (2 Adults and 2 Children).

These can be pre-purchased from Ticketek by calling 132 849 or by visiting their website www.ticketek.com.au

It promises to be a fantastic day at the footy, so get in early and secure your seat to what will be a fun filled day of footy and family fun at Canberra Stadium.

Yep sweet as that team looked like it could get better I think and we may be able to win with the same guys out there this weekend. Who knows. Toss of the coin job if you ask me. Christ we need a win though!
