Foxsports brings word of a great Raiders start to the season with Cronulla flogged 40-12:
The Sharks were unable to stop the Raiders from piling on the points as the Green Machine that rolled into the 2010 NRL finals continued from where they left off last year.
Compounding the Sharks’ woes was the sending off of hooker Paul Aiton in the 74th minute for headbutting Raiders centre Joel Thompson.
Canberra also suffered a couple of setbacks.
Captain Alan Tongue injured an AC joint after a shoulder charge on Cronulla prop Kade Snowden in the opening minutes and took no further part in the match, while prop Brett White was placed on report for knee lifting.
