The lure of a major financial boost will give the Canberra Raiders extra incentive to secure a top-four berth for just the second time in 15 years. The Raiders can edge closer to a finals double chance if they beat Manly at Canberra Stadium on Sunday afternoon. But the extra bonus of finishing as high as possible on ladder at the end of the regular season will be a major cash injection for the Green Machine's coffers. The Raiders pocketed almost $500,000 when they hosted two finals three years ago after a surge in support, increased ticket sales and sponsorship bonuses. The Raiders will host at least one final this season and finishing in the top four carries the advantage of preliminary final hosting rights for the first time after the NRL changed its rules this season.
