Canberra finally on TV

After months of lobbying, undefeated National Rugby League leaders the Canberra Raiders will star on Channel Nine's Friday night television coverage.

The May 30 game against Cronulla at Toyota Park will be shown in preference to the clash between Brisbane and Newcastle -- the first game at the new Suncorp Stadium, formerly Lang Park.

The Broncos v Knights game will be played on Sunday June 1 and televised on Channel 9.
