Highlight: Watching Jack Wighton evolve into one of the truly great rising stars in the game.
Lowlight: A few losses will see Ricky ‘Sticky’ Stuart on the outer with fans, again.

It is really hard to see how the Raiders can improve enough to make the playoffs in 2015 but you can expect plenty of spirit from the Canberra outfit. Whether that’s enough to win matches is another story. Jack Wighton, Josh Papalii and rookie half Mitch Cornish is a good nucleus to build on but it might be a long year for the Green Machine.
