Foxsports have the sensational news (and as importantly the above video to share) on the Raiders smashing the ladder leading Merger Dragons 32-16 at home!
Denied in the first half by St George Illawarra’s gutsy goal-line defence, the Raiders persevered and the floodgates opened as the home team stuck the boot into their bunny side in front of a delirious crowd of 20,445 at Canberra Stadium.
Their chances of sneaking into the playoffs were also enhanced by losses to Parramatta, South Sydney, Brisbane and the Warriors – all fringe top eight teams.
St George Illawarra coach Wayne Bennett admitted his side do have a problem winning in the nation’s capital, and praised the Raiders as the equal of any team they have played.
They’re still in 9th place with an awful for and against, but playing with form at the right end of the season.
