Canberra Raiders beaten at home by Bunnies

By 2604 25 April 2010 3

Continuing a miserable weekend for Canberra sports fans, ABC News brings news that the Canberra Raiders have gone down to the South Sydney Rabbitohs 26-24, at Bruce.

The Raiders raced out to a 24-6 half-time lead, including through a spectacular try to Josh Dugan. However, the team lost its composure in the second half and allowed the Rabbitohs to run in four unanswered tries. Poor handling and inconsistent play (including, IMO, far too much working the ball up the middle and not spreading it around) let the team down at critical times.

The poor result came despite some excellent play by Dugan, Adam Mogg (before he was taken off injured) and Terry Campese, as well as some spirited defence against the Rabbitohs’ big men. Here’s hoping the team can build on these positives and turn things around before next week’s game against the Warriors in Auckland.

Footage of Josh Dugan’s try – “the greatest try-scoring effort you’ll ever see”, according to the Fox Sports commentator – is now on YouTube:

The 80s must be back……..the good old Canberra Faders. Haven’t seen these types of 1st half leads blown since the Seiffert days
