Canberra Raiders v Cronulla Sharks

That's it from us as the Raiders prove too strong for the badly depleted Sharks. Thank you for joining us, stay with for all your rugby league news.

And that is fulltime, with Canberra deserving 22-12 winners in the end. The Sharks look destined for their first wooden spoon since way back in 1969.

Cronulla's woes this afternoon are summed up by an obstruction call in the final minute.

Cronulla's Fa'amanu Brown lands awkwardly from a tackle and is having his leg looked at by the trainers.


Robinson with a great run straight up the middle of the park. Can the Sharks get over the line and set up a grand stand finish?

Lee is tackled into touch on the left-hand side, but it matters little for the Raiders. There are just five minutes left on the clock as Matt Prior spills the ball for the Sharks for the second time in a matter of minutes.

Croker converts and the Raiders look like winners, leading 22-12 with nine minutes left on the clock.


It didn't take long for Canberra to hit straight back. A piercing kick is perfectly placed for Milford to split the defence and crash over the line. That was nicely worked by the Raiders.

Gordon converts and we have a ball game. Cronulla trail 16-12, with just over 12 minutes remaining on the clock.

The Sharks are back in it! It was hard work, but a nice attacking play ends with Michael Lichaa finding Tim Robinson and he scores next to the post. 16-10 Raiders, Cronulla kick to come.

Canberra are penalised for a strip as the Sharks inch out of their own red zone.

For the second time today, Lee drops the pill with the tryline at his mercy. The Sharks are still in it, but only just. They'd want to score next.

Things are falling apart now for the Sharkies. Wright is placed on report for lifting Croker in a dangerous tackle.

Tough minute for Holmes, with the teenager picked up and carried back into his in-goal area. More pressure being applied here by the Raiders.

Trouble for Cronulla as the Raiders cross for their third try. It's all too easy down the left side before Milford shows too much pace for Holmes and crosses for his 10th try of the season.
