Raiders just can't seem to get it right. They have the attack but make the mistakes.

Good win over Cronulla 22 - 20. Lost 3 tries to 4, but goals got them home. Small crowd - but Thursday night is never good. Would have been freezing too.

Good to see the Raiders get home over what looked like the choccy soldiers playing strip especially with that gold shoulder patching.
Both sides put in some great performances but over all it wasn't a great game.
20 unanswered points in 23 minutes by the raiders then nothing until a penalty goal late in the second half.
Sharks the reverse...conceded 20 then came back in the second half piling on 20 unanswered points.

There was some fine up in your face defence by both sides but it wasn't consistent however attack seemed to be the game plan from both sides.

Raiders centre Nick Cotric has been charged by the NRL match review committee for his tackle on Tim Lafai in Sunday's win over the Dragons.

Cotric has been charged with a grade-three dangerous throw.

If he takes the early plea he will miss three matches. If he fights the charge and loses he will miss four matches.

The Raiders have until midday on Tuesday to make a decision on whether they will contest the charge.

Cotric could have been facing a five-week ban but received a 21-point deduction for each minute he was off the field at WIN Stadium.

In other judiciary news announced on Monday, Bulldogs prop Dylan Napa and Raiders back-rower Elliott Whitehead can both avoid suspension despite being charged.

An early guilty plea to a dangerous contact charge will mean Napa is free to play this weekend while Whitehead has been fined over a contrary conduct charge involving Penrith halfback Nathan Cleary.

Raiders second-rower Elliott Whitehead can avoid suspension with an early guilty plea after being hit with a dangerous contact charge.

The Match Review Committee gave Elliott a grade one charge for a 28th-minute incident involving Roosters centre Joseph Manu.

The only way Whitehead can miss a match is if he challenge the charge at the judiciary and loses.

Are Canberra the dark horse of the Comp. Will they make their run ?

I'd put them 3rd at the moment in chances.

Great win to Canberra 22 - 18 Melbourne.

22 points in a row. Good to see the Refs crack down on the spoiling tactics.

Raiders prop Tapine will pay a $1,150 fine with an early plea to a contrary conduct charge after his spat with Storm opposite Nelson Asofa-Solomona midway through the first half of Canberra's 22-18 win at AAMI Park on Saturday night.

That will be pleasing for Raiders coach Ricky Stuart as he prepares his men to play the Sea Eagles talented forward pack at GIO Stadium next Sunday.
