With only a couple of minutes to spare, Craig Frawley crashed over the line in Saturday night’s match against the Broncos in Brisbane. Tim Mander asked the video referee to adjudicate, and the Raiders were denied what was a clear try. Should the Raiders have been awarded that try the game would have almost certainly been forced to golden point.
The Raiders pushed the Broncos all the way. The final result was Broncos 24 Raiders 18. A match summary is available at the Canberra Times. Given other weekend results the Raiders are unchanged on the ladder and still remain a (remote) finals chance.
Until yesterday’s match against the Rabbitohs, Ralph was convinced that the Bulldogs would flog the Broncos in this year’s grand final. My prediction now is a Dragons v Broncos grand final.
