While our lives have changed a lot recently, there is one thing that remains the same… Our love for the Canberra Raiders.

We may not be able to sit in the crowd and watch the game live in action, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a couple of friends over to watch the game from the best seat in the house and show our support for the green machine!

We’ve put together an entertainers shopping list to enjoy this Saturday night before and after you do the Viking clap.

Footy Cob Dip

A cob dip is the ultimate addition to any social gathering – it’s a hit for all ages! While there are numerous varieties of cob dip, we’re a fan of this Mexican Footy Dip Cob recipe.

Pesto Dip

This pesto dip is perfect with crackers, but also substitutes as a great sauce or topping for party pies, hot chips, sausage rolls and more. For a healthier alternative cut up some green capsicum, cucumber and celery for green dipping sticks.

Green lime spiders

Usually created with creaming soda, this old-school childhood treat needs to make a comeback! Simply pour lime flavoured soft drink into a glass and top with a scoop of ice cream. Delicious!
