Raiders batter their way into finals contention

By johnboy - 11 June 2013 3

Foxsports have the happy news that the Green Machine’s rumbling into gear nicely:

Canberra burst out of the blocks with four first half tries and survived a late Brisbane fightback to win 30-18 in their NRL clash at Canberra Stadium.

The game was built up as the perfect State of Origin audition for Josh Papalii.

However the Canberra enforcer had a mixed night, making a whopping 151 metres in attack yet making several unexpected errors and being put on report for a lifting tackle on Josh Hoffman with just 10 seconds left on the clock.

Raiders coach David Furner didn’t seem too concerned about Papalii’s tackle on report, nor his captain Campese’s when he slid into Reed in the 37th minute.

“Have a look at the conditions,” Furner said.

“The dew on the ground, you could slide from 30 metres out and end up there, please.

Go the Raiders! My poor kids (5 and 8 ) couldn’t understand:
a. why the Raiders were being called the green machine when they had blue footy jerseys on. “Should be called the ‘Blue Machine’ ” they kept saying, even though I explained that teams may wear different coloured footy jerseys to raise money.
b. where the promised snow and toboggans were.
