Sad news.

Is it great news? It's the same argument as we get in the AFL about robbing your loyal fans of a game - the problem is that Canberra being a one-team city can't offer its members the make up game that Melbourne-based AFL teams can.

I believe it is. Taking games to places that don't get to see matches for premiership points. Canberra will still have 11 home games a year. Hardly a robbing.

Interesting he’s gone with a modern day bench.

Croker probably flies under the radar yet again.

Canberra look to good for the Broncos atm.
A few stupid mistakes here and there but the Green Machine is hitting hard.

Keep an eye out for my sons mate Elijah Anderson from CQ, good player.

He is playing this weekend, great kid was an outside wing when he was little but with a bit more size he'll most likely play Fullback Inside Centre.
Speed and skill, he'll carve up.

Let's hope so

Will play off the bench

Comes from a town in CQ with about a thousand people in it.
He's good mates with Papa so he'll look after him.

also my mate from Cairns has his Cousin playing at Canberra too, Seb Kris.
He's a lovely bloke who i've met a few times and signed about a thousand footies for kids at our BBQ.

Yeah Kris has worked his butt off to get that contract

I see he isn't playing this weekend

Is Elijah similar to Xavier Savage who also hails from Cairns?

Seb was KO'd last round, failed HIA.

My son went to school with Xavier's brother, Savage and Kris are related.

Elijah is very good and like Xavier and Hamiso (who is also related to Kris)

Some very very good young guns coming out of North Queensland and Central Queensland atm.
