The Raiders' season reaches a key juncture at Canberra Stadium on Thursday night as Ricky Stuart's men look to snap a three-match losing slide against the high-flying South Sydney Rabbitohs.
With the club desperate to revive their ailing season, Raider Nick has issued a passionate rallying cry urging fans to play their part in helping Canberra rebound against the Rabbitohs.
Nick Risteski used his MIX 106.3 radio show on Monday to launch an emotional call to arms in a bid to help Stuart's side reverse their on-field NRL fortunes.
"In sport, things don't turn out the way you want it all the time. That's life, and in life we all go through difficult periods," Risteski said.
"Just like if you had a loved one going through a difficult period, would you kick them in the guts?
"It's going to be a test of character for the boys. But it's also going to be a test of character for all of us, all the anger, it all comes from passion.
"Redirect it in a positive way. Get out there on Thursday night now with this. Use that pain constructively, scream from every cell in your body.
"Show your support for 80 minutes. Do that Viking Clap as hard as you can. Lift, let's make it hostile and as hard as possible for the Bunnies.

"Draw a line in the sand and ask yourself, am I going to be a part of the negative noise? Or am I going to support the boys."
Stuart named his side for the crucial Rabbitohs clash on Tuesday afternoon, with skipper Jarrod Croker out with a shoulder injury.
