NRL and AFL join forces in Canberra

The heads of two local sporting organisations, the Canberra Raiders and AFL Canberra, are doing their bit to help boost membership for 2009 by supporting each other.

Raiders CEO Don Furner and AFL Canberra General Manager Rowan Johnstone have agreed to buy two memberships from each other to show how important membership is to local footy.

Mr Furner said memberships were important for all clubs and all codes and supporting sport in Canberra was the way to do this.
