Fancy a drive? For six hours? That's what's facing any Canberra Raiders fans or sponsors who might want to go to a game. It's hard to get too excited about fans returning to the NRL when it doesn't really apply to Canberrans. Yep, keep withering on that vine. For those that don't know, on Friday the NSW government gave the NRL the all clear to have small crowds back from next weekend - provided their biosecurity measures stack up. Corporate boxes will be treated like pubs, which means small gatherings of up to 50 will be allowed in each box.

Doubters were always gonna doubt, but George Williams is helping change the perception of the English Super League with his first few games for the Canberra Raiders. Not surprising Raiders coach Ricky Stuart is saying that when the England international is throwing cutout passes straight out of his own playbook. Williams has been the talk of the NRL this week after a sensational first-half display in the Green Machine's 22-6 win over the Melbourne Storm - setting up two tries, one with aforementioned cutout pass, and putting a big shot on in defence. This week he comes up against one of the premier halves in the competition, Knights captain Mitchell Pearce.  Pearce's combination with fullback Kalyn Ponga is something Fox League expert commentator Mick Ennis sees as a big threat on Sunday.

Huawei Australia is delighted to announce the official launch of its 2020 National Rugby League season 2.0 charity campaign with Sydney-based mental health researcher the Black Dog Institute in partnership with 2019 Grand Finalists the Canberra Raiders.

Founded in 2002 the Black Dog Institute aims to create a mentally healthier world for everyone through research, educational programs and digital tools and apps.

It is the only medical research institute in Australia to investigate mental health for people at any stage of their life.

Huawei Australia will work with the Black Dog Institute throughout the NRL season along with the Canberra Raiders to help drive awareness around mental health issues via an engagement program with Raiders fans at every home NRL match.

The social and economic impacts of not only the catastrophic bushfire season but now the Coronavirus lockdown will have caused mental health issues for many Australians around the country and we hope this campaign will encourage them to reach out to organisations like BDI for assistance.

The Black Dog Institute will also be our partner for the NRL Charity Round on August 15th when the Raiders host the Brisbane Broncos with Huawei Australia and the Raiders launching a special BDI sponsored jersey for the match, with the special jersey set to be launched on August 3rd.

The Raiders players’ jerseys from the Charity Round game will be auctioned off post-match to raise funds for the BDI and to help further their mental health research and programs with a range of other charitable initiatives planned.

Lisa Connors, Manager Corporate Relations and Programs of Huawei Australia, said:

“The impact of the bushfires and now Coronavirus on the mental health of many Australians mean that our campaign with the Black Dog Institute as our NRL charity partner for 2020 becomes even more important.

“We now have the opportunity to highlight and provide assistance to an issue that is going to be a significant problem in Australia as the country starts to rebuild after the fires and recovers from the impact of the virus .

Canberra coach Ricky Stuart is expecting John Bateman to return to the field this season but the club refuses to put a timeline on his recovery from shoulder surgery.

On Thursday the 27-year-old went under the knife for the second time this year to correct a troublesome shoulder with the club labelling the operation 'successful'.

There were fears the Dally M second-rower of the year could be wiped out for the remainder of the NRL season, but Stuart is confident Bateman will return.

John Bateman's shoulder surgery went well and Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart said his star second-rower would definitely be back this season. While the Raiders were yet to set a timeframe, Stuart reassured Raiders fans the England international would play this season. Bateman underwent his second round of shoulder surgery on Thursday, which came four months after he first went under the knife. He was originally hopeful of playing in round one and was then again in the selection mix to face the Newcastle Knights at Campbelltown on Sunday, but a series of complications led to him needing another operation. It's come at the same time as his future with the Green Machine has become clouded following agitations from his manager Isaac Moses for a contract upgrade.
