Foxsports has the happy news of lime green triumph at the Stadium in Bruce:
NOT since 1995, when their current coach was wreaking havoc in a lime green jersey, have Parramatta lost eight straight games.
So it was somewhat cruel that Ricky Stuart had to suffer the indignity of being in charge of the first Eels side to equal the unwanted feat at his old stomping ground last night.
While they battled gamely in defence, Parramatta couldn’t find the potency to overcome a Raiders outfit who hadn’t kept a team scoreless since 2009.
In dreadful conditions that featured hail and sleet, both sides duked out a try-less second half after Canberra led 12-0 at the break.
