Raiders rise from the mire. Raiders 20, Storm 12.

By johnboy - 14 May 2011 6

Foxsports have the pleasingly surprising news that after coach Furner started tweeting RiotACT stories the side has recorded an excellent win, breaking their record equalling losing streak, in Melbourne.

anberra’s lifeless NRL season has a pulse again after they shocked Melbourne Storm 20-12 to break an eight-game losing streak.

The Raiders were staring down the barrel of a club-record ninth-successive loss but out-enthused and out-played their more highly-rated rivals at AAMI Park on Saturday.

Well, well, the Dog Raiders can actually win.

Contrary to popular opinion when eperts rig things they do it so the favourite wins, it draws less attention that way.

There is an excellent book called the fix that explains how several pool games were fixed in the 2006 soccer world cup.

This result is highly sus. Raiders were paying about $5, Storm have been in great form, Raiders didn’t play that well but still won. Hmmm…

Players have to supplement their contracts somehow without being scrutinised as salary cap cheats.

AND it’s amazing how well “some” players will lift when they are told they are in the spotlight for a representative spot.

tooks, im glad im not the only one who noticed. 70% possesion in the first 20 mins. melbourne penalised for slowing the play the ball, but canberra allowed to sleep on players.

ferguson stepped out. another try was short of the line

either way, once the broncos were beaten on friday night, i knew the NRL would love a chance to get the dragons 4 points clear, and i put a sneaky $50 on em.

Anyone named Gupta hanging around in the Melbourne coaching box?
