The Canberra Raiders have released a song about their 2013 season.
It’s refreshingly honest. But really was the team unlucky?
Or were the foundations to build a successful season never there?
The endless injuries and off-field disruptions to the outside backs were quite unlucky. With the exception of Croker, the entire starting back 5 were missing for most of the year (Dugan, Ferguson, Wighton, Lee). The problem with endless injuries isn’t just that you lose those player, but you are forced to continually trial different combinations.
Where will the Raiders finish the 2018 season?
