The Raiders lost against the Newcastle Knights last night at Canberra Stadium.
The Canberra Raiders have been defeated by a rampant Newcastle Knights 36-6 in their Round 21 clash at Canberra Stadium.
Trailing 12-0 at the break, the Raiders couldn’t handle the Knights after Sandor Earl was sin-binned and Tom Learoyd-Lahrs left the field injured, missing a possible opportunity to move into the top eight.
Couch Furner has blamed the loss on an “inability to build pressure“.
“They didn’t allow us (to get a roll one), we’ve got a group of players in there that are banged up,” Furner said.
“They didn’t shy away from that, but if you’re not building that pressure, and that’s the football we’re in at the moment.
“We didn’t handle that well in the second half and we got outplayed in the second half.”
