Under the NRL’s anti-tampering regulations, Klemmer is supposed to be off limits to rival clubs until November next year. The NRL has the authority to impose a range of sanctions, starting with warnings and fines, in the rare event that a tampering offence is proven. An estimated $2 million of Newcastle’s 2019 salary cap remains unspent, and Knights 9

19 October 2018 1:51 AM Canberra Raiders lock in date for Wagga Wagga NRL match

The Canberra Raiders will move their round eight game to Wagga next year as part of the NRL's plan to connect with regional fans.

10 October 2018 6:51 AM West Belconnen Warriors land star halves for 2019

The West Belconnen Warriors have landed an early signing coup for 2019, bringing premiership half Bobby Roberts back and also luring his cousin Brent Crisp from the Queanbeyan Kangaroos. Roberts was part of the Warriors' 2016 grand final win, but spent last season playing for the Young Cherrypickers. He and Crisp played together for the Belconnen United 16

30 September 2018 5:10 AM Belconnen United sign former Raider Sam Mataora

Belconnen United have further bolstered their roster signing former Canberra Raiders and Newcastle forward Sam Mataora as coach Scott Logan continues his push to lift the Sharks out of the Canberra Raiders Cup cellar.

28 September 2018 10:16 AM Drought doesn't stop Weyman from helping others get Pie in the Sky

The lush, green grass of Seiffert Oval is a far cry from Michael Weyman's drought-affected farm back in Moruya. But that didn't stop the former Canberra Raiders prop from reliving his premiership glory - albeit in St George Illawarra colours - and selflessly raising money for those less fortunate in the Pie in the Sky game on Friday night. The game raised 13

22 September 2018 9:03 AM Roosters wanted Cornish to stick around in NRL

That game was at five-eighth, alongside Cronk - the man the Roosters brought from the Melbourne Storm to turn minor premierships into premierships.

While 17

And gone were the days of commuting from Lake Macquarie, to the south of Newcastle, down to Kogarah Jubilee Oval on a Sunday to continue my infatuation with the Dragons deep into the 1990s. Competing interests, relationships, travelling, careers, births and deaths of children and family, endless rugby league atrocities, player disloyalty and a little 22

7 September 2018 1:50 AM Bears coach looks for fairytale finish in George Tooke

"But if my information is right, it's also Chris's last game in charge of Crookwell so he's also probably looking for a fairytale ending. One of us will get it." This time they're up against a highly fancied Crookwell side boasting Picker brothers Joe and Ben. Joe played 121 NRL games for the Canberra Raiders and South Sydney, while Ben played for the Raiders 29

6 September 2018 2:09 AM SMH Live: Beyond the Back Page

The NRL title race is heading towards its tightest finish in history, with the top four teams being anyone's guess. After a dismal season, the UK spring tour is now a must win for the Wallabies. And the Aussie cricket team, post ball tampering, soon faces another challenge, against Pakistan, South Africa and the Test series against India. Join Herald 108

5 September 2018 10:00 AM How Jordan Mailata rejected $5000 offer from Souths and ended up with a $3.5 million NFL contract

No, not many would’ve thought a boy from Bankstown would make the Eagles’ final 53-man roster, just as they didn’t think he’d get picked up in April’s NFL draft. Those who were there that day in 2014 when Mailata collapsed on the training field one week before he played his first match for the Bulldogs in the SG Ball (under-18s) competition probably 32
