Fans of the Green Machine will be celebrating after the Canberra Raiders beat the St George-Illawarra Dragons 22-14 in Wollongong today. The Tele has a write-up (complete with whinging comments from Dragons supporters blaming the ref, Origin, and anything but their team’s performance for the loss).
The first half was very even, but the Raiders blew the Dragons away in the second half, with a try each to young guns Joel Thompson, Jarrod Croker and Josh Dugan in the space of six minutes. The team was strong across the park, with Terry Campese, Troy Thompson and Glen Buttriss making valuable contributions, as well.
The win marked the Raiders’ twelfth win against the Dragons in their previous thirteen matches. The Raiders have a bye next weekend and will be playing the Gold Coast Titans at Canberra Stadium on Sunday 6 June, at 2pm.
