The Canberra Raiders have enjoyed their second away win of the season, destroying the Canterbury Bulldogs 58 – 18 in Sydney last night. Rabbitohs bound Colin Best had his most impressive game for the Raiders this season bagging 4 trys in a man of the match performance.
The Raiders, who have been fairly ordinary away from home this season, carried their impressive form from last week and from the kick off started piling on the points, leading 16 nil after just 20 minutes of play. The Bulldogs were able to get within two points just before the break, but a Canberra try late in the first half saw the score go to 26-18. In the second half it was all Raiders, who seemed to be able to score at will.
Granted the Bulldogs were missing a few players, but so are the Raiders who have 9 regular first grade players out with injury. The only sour note to the whole night came when Todd Carney limped off with an ankle injury late in the second half, he is due to undergo some scans on Monday.
The next Raiders home game is against the Sharks on Monday 30th of June, and kick off is at 7pm. If we can continue this sort of form throughout the last half of the season, we should easily make the top 8. Go Raiders!
