The Raiders dug deep right until the very end against the Warriors in Auckland last Saturday night. Despite their efforts they were beaten 24-16. A review is available at the Canberra Times.
Jason Smith’s kicking wasn’t on target, and seems to have been off since he returned from a knee injury. Todd Carney again showed that he will be a future star of the game.
If my calculations are right, the Raiders have to beat the Broncos (in Brisbane) this weekend to stay in finals contention – a formidable task.
