Great win.
Well played lads.
Graham was great, as was Arrow and Su’a. Benji should some magic
Good effort all round.

Is the one sided commentary getting worse?

Yep, another win but shit defence against a depleted side.
We need a massive improvement for next week. I don’t think we can beat the Storm.

Million dollar question - Is Murray ok? Didn’t look fantastic hobbling off and god we missed him.

Defence is fucked at the moment. Yep we won and we’ve been out scoring teams but our D is a massive worry at the moment.

Need to play two halves of footy next week

Storm will not let us back in if we start so poorly again

We were much better in the second half. Scored some great tries. But our contact in defence was poor, still too many arm grabs and guys going too high.
Pity that Host got sent to the bin. He had a tremendous second half. Arrow strong too and so was Sua

Always nice to win but wow the lack of defensive hunger is worrying and Paulo is shot in confidence and cannot be there next week. No Cam and our middle gets a bit soft with first contact embarrassing at times. At 7-1 we have time to fix it thankfully.

Any win in Canberra is brilliant.

We have a very poor record down there!

Got the Milo’s at the right time but they were very game.

Keaon looks very special and AJ is going great out wide.

But Renno was as cool as a cucumber and the man tonight. Great captains knock.

Another 2 points, great second half again.
That 10 mins in the bin for Host, if he consistent he probably could have pinned the Raiders half a dozen times over the game.

It was a bit the same on Fox. You could see the commentary box wanted the raiders to win - they kept crapping on about all their players out

Man of the match: Keaon Koalamatangi
Second Best: Cody Walker
Third Best: Campbell Graham

Special mention to Damien Cook as well who has been real solid the past few weeks.

Real gutsy win tonight with arguably our two star and key players in Latrell Mitchell and Cameron Murray out of the side.

Also our starting prop Junior Tatola who makes allot of big yards up the middle.

Our attack is not a problem it’s our defence we need to work and it seems since we lost Latrell it has happened.

Regardless these things will happen during a season and as long as we keep winning that is the main thing.

Onto the storm next week!

Attitude in defence at times poor, granted no Tatola, Murray and Mitchell but it needs to stiffen up enormously for next week.

That being said, Koloamatangi and Su’A were fantastic. Benji, what do you say? Graham’s renaissance continues, Gagai has never played better, Tom and Knight strong, plenty of positives.

Strong second half on the back of holding the ball

Again we let the opposition control the fame for 20 min in the first half

Benji milked two penalties at critical moments in the game ti get us home

Any win in Canberra is a great win.

Reyno and Benji got us home thank God.

I thought Koloamatani had a huge game. I don’t wanna be negetive but we really need a solid Winger instead of Tontine and the tripper.
