If there’s one thing the Raiders can be relied on for it’s beating the fabled Dragons.

Foxsports tells the tale:

A three-try haul to Reece Robinson, including the match-winner, allowed Canberra to extend their NRL hoodoo over St George Illawarra with a come-from-behind 22-18 victory on Monday.

The Raiders were trailing 18-16 with three minutes to go before Robinson found a yawning gap on the left-hand side of the field in the Dragons’ quarter, his try dooming the visitors to yet another loss at Canberra Stadium.

The Dragons haven’t won in the nation’s capital since 2000 – and that was so long ago that even Raiders coach David Furner played in the side.

It sure is nice to have a win. Any hoodoo will do. The highlight for mine was watching the Foxy cameraman racing up and down the sideline on his segway. His control was impressive. Does he have to have special permission to ride that thing in Canberra ?

It has been a lean year with few highlights for us Raiders supporters, but no matter how many times you see them beat St George, it just never gets old.

Last night on ABC24 the news reel read

Raiders wins 22-18 against Canberra

Unfortunately they corrected it before I could embarrass them using my camera…

I think any win by the Raiders is worth celebrating, and one where (hoodoo enthusiasts aside) they weren’t expected to win is all the better! Go the Raiders!
