Canberra have named a seven man bench for this weekends do or die clash against fellow strugglers, the North Queensland Cowboys. Canberra have reached desperation stakes for their game and if they lose, any remote chance of making the top eight will surely disappear. If Canberra are made of sterner stuff, and they assure us they are, a comprehensive victory here is the only acceptable outcome for what has been a horror season to date.
