Raiders Last Stand   Leave a comment

Monday, 31 August, 2015

On Monday night Barry and I went along to our first and last Raiders RL match of the season!

It’s been another season of disappointments for the Canberra Raiders with a bright start rising the expectations of the fans, only to see their hopes dashed with some careless losses in the middle of the season, resulting in them needing to win this game to avoid the wooden spoon!

You could tell that both teams had nothing to play for and at times it looked as though they were already on the beach. Anyway, the Raiders raced into a big lead at half time, 22-6, which they never looked like losing in the second, running out 34-18 winners by the final hooter.

Only 6,700 odd spectators could be bothered to turn out on another cold ACT night with the biggest cheer going up for us all scoring a 2 for 1 offer from MacDonald’s for the home side getting a try in the allotted 5 minute time window, result!
