PLA Raiders get their groove on over the Warriors

By johnboy - 9 April 2012 4

Foxsports has the good news of a win for the Canberra Raiders at home yesterday over the South Auckland Warriors:

Two-try hauls to Reece Robinson and Jarrod Croker pushed Canberra to a comprehensive 32-12 victory over the Warriors for their first home win of the season.

The Raiders led all day against last year’s grand finalists, setting up victory with a four-try opening half and then outscoring the Warriors again after the break three tries to one.

It was an impressive performance that pleased even coach David Furner, particularly coming off the back of last week’s stinging 22-6 defeat to North Queensland Cowboys.

But wait, there’s more! The Brisbane Times has word that plans are afoot to show the new Chinese overlords just what they’ve bought:

China’s ambassador to Australia Chen Yuming was an interested onlooker at the Raiders’ impressive 32-12 Easter Sunday win over the New Zealand Warriors at Canberra Stadium yesterday.

Afterwards, Canberra boss Don Furner confirmed the Raiders will explore the viability of staging a pre-season game in China, in January or February next year.

”Certainly we have had some talks and the powers-that-be at Huawei were keen on us investigating the idea of playing an exhibition or trial game in China,” Furner said yesterday.

”They literally brought it up and said to think about it.

Note to Raiders management: Be careful if the team goes to a banquet with Chinese officials. The post-toasts merriment could lead to bad PR. That said, I’m sure an NRL player could drink a CCP official under the table.

One should hope that no pictures surface of any players in a compromising position with a panda.

Some decent tries there by the Raiders. Please keep up this form long enough to cement a spot in the top 8.

Playing a demonstration game in the Chinese winter?! I hope it is somewhere in the south where it isn’t so cold.
