MR SESELJA (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (5.59): I want to pay tribute to the Canberra Raiders who had their season launch on 4 March at the West Belconnen Leagues Club. My wife and I were very pleased to be able to attend and to enjoy the hospitality that was offered by the Canberra Raiders.
I have got to say that I think there are some really impressive characters around the Raiders Club. I had the opportunity on the night to speak to John McIntyre, who never ceases to impress me with his wisdom. He has just been such a tireless advocate and worker for the Canberra Raiders. Of course, I mention also Don Furner and David Furner, the coach. I would like to pay tribute to the work that they are doing and, indeed, to the welcome that we were given, as well as, indeed, Simon Hawkins, who looked after us on the night as well. It was a good turnout, as always. It was good to see so many sponsors getting behind the Raiders.
I would also like to acknowledge some of those sponsors who are getting behind each of the individual players: the Lighthouse Waterfront Pub, Canberra Toyota, Mooseheads, Walter Turnbull, City Group, Lennock Motors, Monaro Screens,
