FoxSports has the anticipated news that last night the Raiders were nowhere near good enough, going down to the ‘Dogs 30-12.
Despite coughing up enough ball to lose the game twice over the Raiders seemed quite pleased with their performance. This, to me, is why the departure of the coach and six senior players isn’t quite the disappointment it would usually be.
As usually they started brightly before the rot set in, and as usual Jason Smith was a dominant presence until his aging body broke down again.
UPDATED: The SMH notes that the Raiders made the finals in all three grades which at lease bodes well for the future.
