This Friday 3rd December is International Day of People with Disability. Throughout the week we will be sharing content that promotes inclusion and celebrates the achievements within our rugby league community. 


This year the Score Raiders team participated in the local Under 14s competition, playing against teams like the Bungendore Tigers, Queanbeyan Kangaroos and South Tuggeranong Knights.


Ben Cunningham from the Disability Trust said the opportunity for the Score Raiders was very exciting and that they all really enjoyed playing against the Under 14s teams.


“The local league teams involved showed great sportsmanship and it was wonderful to see the young men learn how to work with people living with a disability,” Cunningham said.


“It was also a great learning curve for the Score Raiders participants to learn how to play hard and not win all the time.


“Thank you to the CRRL and the local league teams involved for being very accommodating for our Score Raiders team.”

   
Bungendore Tigers Under 14s coach Brett White said that having the Score Raiders in the competition was very powerful and gave the players opportunities to grow.


“Being an Under 14s coach, or any coach, you always look for opportunities to grow people as people, not just as a player. Coaching an Under 14s team, that was probably the main reason why I do it is to grow these kids,” White said.


“When we had the opportunity to play against the Score team, I thought that it was the perfect opportunity to really help these kids grow as people and be involved in this.”


White said that on the match day it was wonderful to see the acceptance and how the juniors played against the Score team.


“It’s great to have that exposure to it and for the Under 14s, they’re at an impressionable age and to show that this is the right thing to do, to be involved and support teams like the Score Raiders is great.”

   
“A couple of weeks later we played another game in Queanbeyan and the Score team was playing after us. We had the opportunity to line up and do the Viking Clap and clap them onto the field.

On the Boyle: Raiders aim big as NRLW bid is launched

Jillaroos prop Millie Boyle is likely to be offered the opportunity to return home and help lead a foundation Raiders team if the club secures a 2023 NRLW licence.


Raiders CEO Don Furner and director Katrina Fanning, who played 26 Tests and is regarded as a Jillaroos’ trailblazer, launched Canberra’s bid to join an expanded NRLW competition on Monday and said they wanted the region's players to play at the highest level without having to move.


Boyle is from Cobargo on the NSW South Coast and has links to the Raiders through her father David and uncle Jason Croker, but the NSW Origin star and former ACT Brumbies rugby union representative has played for the Brisbane Broncos since the first NRLW season in 2018.


Furner nominated Boyle as a player the Raiders believed would help ensure their NRLW team, which will mostly comprise of young talent developed through the club’s Tarsha Gale Cup or Katrina Fanning Shield pathways, was competitive.


“Recruiting a Millie Boyle would be like recruiting a Mal Meninga,” Furner said. “They attract other players, and you need that to get started.


“We want to be competitive. Finance-wise we will be fine, facilities-wise we will be fine, so we just need to start looking now at recruiting some talent.”

Yasmin Meakes (Roosters) and Samantha Economos [Warriors] played in the Canberra Region Katrina Fanning Shield competition but had to move to play NRLW.


The Raiders will submit their application to play in the 2023 Telstra NRL Women’s Premiership early next year, but Furner is extremely confident that the club will be accepted.


Canberra has a new Centre of Excellence and the club is financially strong, with Furner believing that the cost of running an NRLW team – estimated to be $750,000 per season – would be covered through the NRL’s grant, sponsorship and government funding.


As the nation’s capital, Canberra offers strong employment prospects, the chance to study at ANU and cheaper accommodation than Sydney, which Furner said would all be used as lures to attract star players.
