    Live: Raiders v Warriors

    Date
    Sort posts by:

    And that's it, the Raiders have come from the clouds for the second week in a row to beat the New Zealand Warriors 20-18.

    Not again, not again!!!!! With four minutes left, the Raiders have repeated their heroics of last week, Edrick Lee coming from nowhere with a spectacular leap to grab the high ball and plant it down over the line. What an amazing finish. Raiders 20; Warriors 16

    So close for the Raiders. They go to the air on the last tackle, Wighton gets his hands on it but can't control it on the Warriors' try line. 8min to go

    It's try time for little Sammy Williams, dancing his way across the stripe. Game on baby, don't count out the Raiders yet. They are the NRL's comeback kings. 18min to go. Croker converts. Warriors 16; Raiders 14

    Oh yeah, and Campo got within a couple of metres of scoring a fantastic try. Tilse took centre stage.

    Bahahahaha, I've seen everything now. Who gets the ball for the Raiders on the last tackle - none other than big Dane Tilse. The NRL giraffe gets his big boot to a grubber kick which has too much power on it and goes dead.

    There's a massive cheer in the media box from my mate next to me, Jon 'Tuxy' Tuxworth, and that can mean only one thing - a Raiders try! Joel Thompson gets his hand to a grubber kick but the video ref wants a look at it. It's no try, officials saying the Warriors forced it dead and it's a line drop out.

    TRY: Green flags are in high rotation as Sticks Lee shimmies his way over the try-line. He's close to the left-hand touchline, but the big winger with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air haircut gets the ball down and brings the Raiders back into the game. Croker misses the conversion as it hits the upright. Warriors 16; Raiders 8

    Josh Papalii looks right when he should have looked left and a massive chance for the Raiders goes begging. Papalii barges through the Warriors defence, but his pass to Wighton is cut off by Vatuevi when he had a teammate on his inside.

    Johnson converts and the Warriors go 12 points ahead. Warriors 16; Raiders 4

    TRY! Ben Henry is the quickest to react to the tip-back from the bomb to extend the Warriors' lead early in the second half. The Warriors made a big break down the right-hand sideline, followed by Shaun Johnson's pinpoint cross field kick to big Manu Vatuvei, who taps back to Henry. Warriors 14; Raiders 4

    Just moments away from kickoff in the second half. If my writing gets messy in the next 40 minutes, it's not that I've gone to the bar but could be the after effects of sculling a 600ml carton of Raiders Lime. Milk and flavouring never tasted so good

    And that's halftime, with the Warriors holding a 10-4 lead after 40 minutes. The Raiders haven't threatened much since opening the scoring with a sensational try to Sandor Earl. David Shillington's loss in the forwards is a big factor, but good to see Terry Campese get through the final 10 minutes of the half unscathed, apart from a bit of blood from his nose and mouth.

    Turning into a bit of an arm wrestle here. Neither side constructing too much as we inch towards halftime with the Warriors leading 10-4.

    Great work from Sticks Lee to clean up a dangerous kick from the Warriors. Lee stormed his way out of the in-goal to give the Raiders some respite. And here comes Campo!!!! Massive roar for the man in jersey No 18

    25th min: Goal to Warriors - Shaun Johnson slots it from the left sideline to give the visitors a 10-4 lead.

    24th min: Try to Warriors! Manu Vatuvei scores his second in the left corner to give the visitors an 8-4 lead. His opposite number Sandor Earl looks to be struggling big time with a hamstring injury.

    Quickly becoming a case of last man standing. Sandor Earl has put his hand up to the sideline, he's struggling big time. Only back on the bench is Campese, although Joel Thompson can shift to the centres.

    Raiders centre Jack Wighton has been placed on report for contact to the head of Dane Nielsen.

    Players going down everywhere here. Dane Nielsen's in some serious grief with a potential neck injury. Hope the Queensland representative is alright. Nielsen had his head rocked back after a collision with Jack Wighton.

    The Warriors hit back straight away through Manu 'The Beast' Vatuvei. The Beast gets on the end of quick hands from Dane Nielsen to score in the corner. Johnson hits the post with his conversion attempt and bounces away. Raiders 4; Warriors 4

    Croker misses the conversion, stays Raiders 4; Warriors 0.

    Meanwhile, David Shillingon could miss the rest of the game with rib damage.

    That had to be seen to be believed! One of the tries of the year by the Raiders. Jarrod Croker regathers a Sam Williams bomb, throws it backwards where Josh McCrone grubbers it back to Williams, who launches another bomb this time to the other side of the field. And it finds Sandor Earl in the clear, Earl takes it cleanly and gets over the line. Raiders 4; Warriors 0

    Concern here for Kangaroos and Raiders prop David Shillington, heading straight to the dressingroom with what's believed to be a quad injury.

    Will the Warriors crack? They've had back to back penalties, a knock-on and now the Raiders have forced a line drop out. The home side couldn't have asked for a better start.

    Back to back penalties has the Raiders on the attack. Terrible start by the Warriors.

    Massive roar for Terry Campese as he's introduced over the ground PA. Crowd pumped to see the skipper back after a horrible run of injury. He's on the bench, with the Raiders kicking off.

    The Warriors are in the rooms while the Raiders are heading there as I type. Meanwhile, we've got the Raiders cheerleaders to keep us entertained for a few minutes until kick-off. Sadly, no backflips or 10-storey high pyrimads ala Bring It On

    Just a reminder, the Warriors haven't won at Canberra Stadium since 1997. I can't even remember 1997, something about terrible high school haircuts, the Super League fiasco and the Adelaide Crows winning the AFL premiership.

    And another footy fan making the mad dash around town

     

     

    Plenty of comments coming in on Twitter about the 11,092 crowd at the cross-town GWS Giants.

     

    Before kickoff, here's a match preview from our mates at AAP:

    Canberra v Warriors at Canberra Stadium 7.30pm

    Head to Head: Raiders 16 Warriors 12

    Last clash: Round 26 2012 - Raiders 42 bt Warriors 22 at Mt Smart Stadium

    Tab Sportsbet: Raiders $1.50 Warriors $2.65

    Canberra fans will be hoping it’s third time lucky for skipper Terry Campese. The former Test and NSW representative’s career has stalled due to a shocking run of injuries since first going down in the 2010 finals series, with all fingers crossed as he prepares for another comeback.

    His return presents coach David Furner with some selection headaches, with Josh McCrone likely to slide over to hooker when Campese gets on the field. The Warriors pushed Souths all the way last week, but Canberra Stadium has been a graveyard for them, winning just once from 10 visits to the nation’s capital.

    Key: Shaun Johnson. The Warriors playmaker can’t afford to drift in and out of games as he has done over the opening five rounds. When he is on song behind a dominant pack, among the best No.7s going around.

    Tip: Raiders

    G'day from Canberra Stadium. Lee Gaskin here for the next couple of hours for this round six NRL match between the Raiders and the New Zealand Warriors.

    Firstly, the team changes. For the Raiders, Joel Thompson is a late inclusion on the bench, with Anthony Milford and Joe Picker missing out from the team named earlier in the week. That means Terry Campese is back for his first game in a year.

    A heap of changes for the Warriors. Dane Nielsen and Ben Matulino in the starting team, with Ben Henry and Sebastine Ikamimifo on the bench.
