Raiders lose to Panthers 18-10

By johnboy 3 May 2009 6

The Brisbane Times brings word of another Raiders Loss, this time to the Penrith Panther at a game played here in Canberra.

I did find this quote from the story passing strange:

    With 98 per cent of possession for a 10-minute period late in the half, the Raiders could have smashed last year’s record, but the Panthers showcased the defensive display of the year to post their fourth win of the season.


So for 10 minutes at the end of the game the Raiders looked like they’d score more than 74 points… Only they didn’t actually score any?

What’s Your opinion?

You could make that a template heading –


That would have upset the 500 fans who showed up…

Your jokes would be funnier if they hadn’t already been made, ad nauseum, by 200 other morons visiting this site.

Campese is still not 100%. They certainly seemed to lack ioptions.

A frustrating game.

For mine, the problem was with our fifth-tackle options. We need to have more in the bag than just (a) the “Campo kicking to Monnas” play, and (b) passing the ball to a forward running one out from the ruck and hoping that he will somehow crash over. We need some decoy runners, cut-out passes, and general bodies in motion so that the opposition is left guessing where their line will be attacked. That’s how gaps get opened up and exactly how Penrith scored the last try, which sealed the win for them.

It’s a bit like when Billy Snedden said following the 1974 election “we didn’t lose the election, we just didn’t win enough seats to form a government” which prompted Jim Killen to say “I went to the races and the horse I backed didn’t come last, it just didn’t run fast enough in order to win”.

The Raiders had a shed-load of possession mid-to-late through the second half, but they couldn’t do anything with it.
