Raiders Jekyll and Hyde streak continues

Mess 18 June 2007 3

Beautiful one minute, god awful the next. The Raiders terrible run away from home continues, going down 22-18 to a pumped up Newcastle Kinights.

The Raiders played a decent first half with plenty of defence, and stole a try right before half time to lead 6-4. After the break the Raiders plyed about 10 minutes of decent football, before the defence line broke into chaos allowing the Knights to score 3 easy tries, incluidng a frakish try by Brad Thye that should of never been scored, to lead 22-6. Two late tries by the Raiders was too little too late, letting the Knights win the game 22-18, in a scoreline that is flattering to the Raiders. Once again it is back to drawing board for Neil Henry and the Raiders. One win away from the top 4 is about as close as we will get this season or so it appears.

Once again I am interested to see what our other raiders fantics think. I am also curious to know, does anyone from the Raiders army besides me read this website?

The outcome would have been different if Canberra had scored another fiver tries….

I think the outcome would’ve been markedly different if the Alan Tongue try was allowed.

The Tongue no-try in the first five minutes disappointed the Raiders but they stayed in teh game for the first half.

The second half started, and they expected the wind to do all the work. Once Campeses attempt at a 40/20 bounced and right angles and stayed in, the Raiders were in trouble – confidence sides don’t need minor setbacks like that…

Carney will be back in ASAP – Dobbo was again quiet last night, Marshall Chalk and Colin Best are not a centre partnership, and the agro of Horse Weyman was missed.

North Queensland Saturday night – hope for a cold one and another win for the Raiders to get back on track…
