Raiders finals run rumbles on. Roosters 20, Canberra 24

The Canberra Raider is a complex beast. It likes to blow early leads in games, and yet it often starts seasons poorly before finishing with a late finals charge.

Foxsports explains how Our Brave Lads have recorded another home win under SuperCoach Furner to see off the filthy cheating Roosters.

Canberra Raiders kept their NRL finals hopes alive with a 24-20 win over the Sydney Roosters in a spiteful clash in Canberra on Saturday.

Led by five-eighth Josh McCrone and man-of-the-match Josh Dugan, Canberra held on despite a late charge by the Roosters who had Anthony Minichiello sent off with six minutes remaining.

The victory put the Raiders equal on points with seventh-placed Brisbane and eight-placed Wests Tigers but in ninth on points difference.
