Raiders go down to Cronulla 24-22

By johnboy - 14 June 2009 10

The Courier Mail brings word that vile Cronulla has triumphed over the Canberra Raiders at the so called “Fortress” in Bruce.

A shame to lose a close one at home.

What’s Your opinion?

Good on them, they played well. Better luck next time.

Although many factors contributed to the loss, for the life of me I can’t understand why Alan Tongue played at hooker! A guy with a busted wrist, who isn’t a natural hooker or dummy half in the first place, plays pivot for 45 minutes of the game, while Glen Buttriss (who was awesome against Souths) cools his heels on the sideline. Having a guy with such an injury in that critical position for so much of the game really cruelled our chances.

So I’m not the only one who thinks its stupid that Tongue is still playing….

Geez just get your surgery and sit out the rest of the season.

The previous two running. Same as Sharks. Only one or the other was going to make it 3 straight today…

Dare I ask if the Raiders have actually won a match this season?
Serious question, not a dig at all.

PROPS to Thom Leroyd-Lahrs and Josh Miller for playing well in a losing side.

No pun intended, LOL.

Gaahhh indeed.

Gaahhh. I give up on them in my tipping, and they start winning. I give them another chance – a home game at that – and they dump on me again. Raiders have cost me so many points this season. Kissing goodbye to my second place…

Damn the eels, tigers, roosters, rabitohs and sharks!!

The raiders are right where they should be; at the bottom of the ladder.

Should have won this one. Was a bit of a soft try that gave the Sharks the lead. Then we almost had the miracle finish after regaining the ball on the kick off but that petered out into a nothing kick to the Sharks winger.
