This is fast becoming a very deep hole for the Raiders with Thursday night's loss to South Sydney the club's fifth in six matches. Poor defence, and a stretch of rotten luck with injury and refereeing is quickly derailing a season which started with so much promise. Stuart's injury list includes captains Josh Hodgson and Jarrod Croker, out with a calf and shoulder respectively, halfback George Williams, who hurt his hamstring in the warm up and didn't play and fullback Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad, still up to two months off returning from a neck injury. Sebastian Kris went down with a lower leg injury in the second half, and while playing on, will no doubt be assessed in coming days. Josh Papalii is horribly out of form, and several more forwards will be disappointed with their recent output.
