Foxsports have the grim tidings out of Canberra Stadium where the Raiders were humiliated by the Melbourne Storm.

Coach Furner says the scoreboard doesn’t reflect the “attitude” of his side.

Meh, the Raiders already gave the Storm an embarassing touch-up earlier in the season, and that was more unexpected than the result from yesterday.

Highlight of a dismal match was Thompson’s big hit. Such a pity Dugan didn’t line up Slater in a similar fashion when he was making his trademark dash through the midfield. If you can’t beat ’em, bruise ’em. No doubt the Raiders were totally outclassed in this match though. Furner can bang on about “attitude” all he likes, but when the team plays like an under 12’s schoolboy side his words mean very little.

twas truly a beautiful thing to watch. the dugan sent flying, along with the hopes of raiders fans, as the storm hold the useless to nil. first time at home in 30 years

now all we can hope for is Thompson to get a few weeks on the sideline for his dog shot on kostjayson (sp?) and a top weekend will be complete
