The Raiders managed a 26-18 upset over Parramatta today. Good defence and plenty of possession in the second half secured the Raiders’ win. However, they still remain in 9th position due to a negative points differential.
Both Todd Carney and David Howell, who stepped-up from Premier League, were outstanding. Jason Croker also deserves credit for both his captaincy and two tries scored. Without Simon Woolford at the helm, the Raiders were more disciplined and certaintly did not rack-up the penalties as seen in previous weeks.
