Canberra centre Nick Cotric admits his third NRL season has been his most tumultuous but the young gun said it had also been a "massive learning curve" ahead of his first finals series.

Cotric debuted at 18 in the opening round of 2017 and played 59 straight games before he was picked for NSW in the State of Origin opener this year.

The 20-year-old Raiders star missed Origin game two with an ankle injury and didn't recover for the decider which the Blues won.

Melbourne assistant coach Ryan Hinchcliffe has rubbished claims the Storm are deliberately employing the "wingnut" tackle on opponents after their skipper Cameron Smith was warned by the NRL for his actions.

Smith was officially put on notice by the NRL after images emerged of him appearing to massage the ear of Canberra's Bailey Simonsson during Saturday's clash in Melbourne.

He was penalised by referee Ben Cummins, who told him it was for "rubbish on the face".

Podcast: Was Smith's ear pull dodgy or fair game?

The Canberra Raiders beat the Melbourne Storm, and some dodgy tactics, to firm as an NRL premiership favourite. But was Cam Smith's ear pull on Bailey Simonsson fair game, or something that needs to be stamped out of the game? The Raiders have tried to avoid being dragged into bagging Smith, but there's no doubt it has created some ill feeling and the Green Machine want NRL officials to take a stand. The Raiders will play against Manly on Sunday, with the club hoping to attract 20,000 fans to a regular season game for the first time in almost a decade. If they don't, Canberra Times sports reporter Caden Helmers will have to "eat his hat" after making a bet about how many Raiders fans will turn up. Join us for The Nosebleed section as we dissect the Raiders' form, their run home and what beating Melbourne means for their title hopes.

Raiders rookie Young bounces back for a finals audition

Rookie forward Hudson Young has a chance to redeem himself in the Canberra Raiders' finals push as he prepares to end an 11-week stint out of the NRL. Young has bounced back from a five-week suspension and a stay in reserve grade to return to the Raiders' bench for a clash with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles at Canberra Stadium on Sunday. A rib injury will keep Joe Tapine sidelined for the top four showdown, paving the way for Ryan Sutton to enter the starting side and thus opening a spot for Young on the bench. Young has been yearning for a first grade recall having "learnt a lot" during his hefty ban for an eye gouge on Canterbury forward Aiden Tolman in June. Three matches for Mounties in the NSW Cup is all he needed to shake off the cobwebs and convince Raiders coach Ricky Stuart he is worthy of a place in the third-placed NRL outfit.
