Tonight the Canberra Raiders beat the Parramatta Eels 24-14 at Parramatta Stadium. The Greenhouse has a blow-by-blow account of how the game unfolded.
Again, Dane Tilse, Shaun Fensom and Terry Campese had standout performances. Former Tuggeranong junior Josh Dugan was also immense in both defence and attack, and completely out-classed the much-fancied Jarryd Hayne. However, the Raiders were strong across the park and each player can be satisfied with his efforts.
The only drawback to the game was a potential injury to Joe Picker, and the fact that ABC 666’s transmission kept on breaking up in the second half. However, they had fixed the technical glitches by full-time, meaning that listeners were treated to the sound of the Parra fans booing their own team from the field.
