Canberra Raiders fans left happy after the outside backs returned to form and made their first win of the season one to remember.

But Raiders coach Ricky Stuart was quick to put a lid on it and stress it was only one win, and things will only get tougher for the Green Machine this week.

The ACT Brumbies picked up another Australian derby win, but is it enough to guarantee their Super Rugby future?

Their recent form on the field suggests it would be ludicrous to axe Australia's most successful Super Rugby team.

The boom of women's sport has spread to the capital with AFL Women's and Super Netball games being played in Canberra.

Both games were witnessed by big crowds, but will it continue next year as the novelty effect wears off?

Canberra has a good track record for supporting women's sport, and that continued with significantly more than 6000 people watching the battle for the first AFLW wooden spoon.

Join Caden Helmers, David Polkinghorne and Eamonn Tiernan to dissect a big week of sport in the capital.
