Foxsports reports on another much needed home win for the Green Machine over the Cronulla Sharks 20-13.

After last weekend’s flogging of Newcastle Knights, he was happy another side of the Raiders had come to the fore.

“We are not always going to win the same way, this was gritty,” Furner said.

It’s now three wins in a row for the Raiders, who are threatening to slip into the top eight but face an enormous challenge in the coming weeks with games against Melbourne Storm, St George Illawarra and Penrith.

Despite playing like they were clients of the Brain Injury Foundation in the first half, the Raiders were good enough in the second half to win.

Great game. Daniel Vidot has really taken off over the last couple of weeks.

There was an interesting statistic on NRL Tactics the other night on Fox Sports. It was something like, of the 10 times the Raiders have put on 50 or more points in a game, they’ve lost the next game 9 times. Also, teams that have had a mid-season coaching change, as the Sharks just have, typically do well in the weeks following. So the Raiders thumbed their noses at the stats this week!
