Bulldogs down Raiders 28-16 in Canberra 

Bulldogs winger Sam Perrett has scored a hat-trick of tries to sink Canberra 28-16 in their NRL clash at Canberra Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Bulldogs' Josh Morris was brilliant at fullback for the injured Ben Barba, scoring the first try of the match and chiming in to assist Perrett in his triple.

While the Raiders would have been rueing the pre-match losses of attacking weapons Terry Campese and Blake Ferguson, it was their shaky fringe defence that was their undoing.

The home side were denied tries three times in the first half by the video referee, the Bulldogs rubbing salt into the wounds by scoring from the following set on each occasion.

Raiders centre Jack Wighton kicked off the "no try" rulings with a double movement in the sixth minute, the Bulldogs responding immediately through a try to Morris.

Matters got worse for the Raiders when Wighton, who was playing at centre due to a pre-match leg injury to Ferguson, was stretchered off with a suspected leg fracture.

Morris then set up a 10-0 lead when he created an overlap from a stuttered attack and threw a one hand pass to Perrett.

The video referee denied the Raiders for the second time when halfback Sam Williams knocked on while placing the ball, and the Bulldogs again made the Raiders pay in the following set through a 27th minute try to winger Mitch Brown.

It was then Raiders fullback Anthony Milford's turn to knock on above the white line, and again the Bulldogs went the length of the field to put Tim Lafai over for a 20-0 lead.

The Raiders managed to get on the scoreboard on the cusp of halftime through a try to winger Sandor Earl to trail 20-6.

But it was one-way traffic for the Bulldogs straight after the break, Perrett bagging tries number two and three to give his side a lead that would fend off a late Raiders fightback.

The Raiders now need to win their three remaining games to nab a finals berth, while the Bulldogs have all but secured a spot in the final eight and consolidate their position at fifth.

NRL Match Report: Raiders V Bulldogs

The Huawei Canberra Raiders’ final chances are hanging by a thread after they suffered a 28-16 loss to the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs this afternoon at Canberra Stadium.

The Raiders looked good early but unfortunately they lost their way midway through the first half allowing the Bulldogs to race to a 20-6 lead by half time. Canberra played better during the second stanza outscoring their opponents in the last 40 minutes but unfortunately it wasn’t enough.

Things started well for the Green Machine when Bulldogs fullback Sam Perrett dropped the kick off in-goal. The Raiders then managed to force a second consecutive drop out when Josh Morris was forced to take a Sam Williams grubber dead. Unfortunately, the Raiders were unable to capitalise on this promising opportunity.

Centre Jack Wighton claimed to have scored the game’s opening try in the 6th minute when he plucked a Josh McCrone bomb out of the air. However, referee Gavin Reynolds went to the video referee who correctly denied the try ruling a double movement.

NYC Match Report: Raiders V Bulldogs

The Canberra Raiders NYC side will need to undergo some soul searching this coming week after crashing to a 62-12 loss to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs this afternoon at Canberra Stadium.

The table toping Raiders would have come into match reasonably confident; however, they were shell shocked by a rabid Bulldogs side that scored more than a point a minute during the opening stanza for a 42-0 lead at halftime.

The Bulldogs drew first blood in the second minute when prop Josh Vaartjes crashed over under the posts. Canterbury fullback Patrick Templeman converted for a 6-0 lead.

This side was soon extended when winger Dujuam Liolevave scored in the right corner. This was followed by three rapid fire tries to Templeman, halfback Jaline Graham and back rower Shaun Lane which bought the score line to 28-0 after 25 minutes.

WIGHTON GONE FOR SEASON

Another week, another Canberra Raiders outside back injured. This time it was Jack Wighton, whose season is over after he broke his right tibia in the first half. The upside is no trampolines were involved in this mishap after he missed much of last year with a toe injury. It is the last thing the Raiders need with winger Edrick Lee (broken arm) still two weeks from a return. Star centre Blake Ferguson was a late withdrawal with a minor quad tear, and Canberra will be desperate for him to prove his fitness for next week’s must-win home game against Manly.

EDGY IN DEFENCE

The shuffle caused by Wighton’s injury didn’t help, but the Raiders' edge defence was badly exposed by the Bulldogs. The left edge in particular was torn apart at will by the visitors, who targeted diminuitive halfback Sam Williams who was playing his first NRL game since round seven. Williams was dropped to address defensive issues, and he was returning from three weeks sidelined with an ankle injury. Morris terrorised him all afternoon with great success. In attack however Williams was one of Canberra’s most dangerous players. He will certainly help St George Illawarra’s rebuild when he heads to Wollongong next year.

TOUGH RUN HOME

Given they have one of the worst for and againsts in the competition, the Raiders may need to win all three of their remaining games to make the finals. Ninth-placed Canberra faces Manly (home), New Zealand (away) and Cronulla (home) to finish off the regular season. It’s a nightmare draw perhaps only matched by the eighth-placed Titans. On Saturday’s evidence, Canberra will have to improve markedly to challenge a Sea Eagles side smarting from Friday night’s loss to South Sydney.

Furner blasts Raiders after third straight loss

Canberra Raiders coach David Furner has questioned his side’s mental strength under adversity after Saturday’s 28-16 loss to Canterbury.

But Furner refused to concede the Raiders’ finals chances were over, despite the Canberra Stadium loss pushing their season to the brink of extinction.

Needing to win to return to the top-eight, Furner felt his players dropped their heads after the Raiders had three tries disallowed by video referees in the first half.

The most controversial call was when Raiders halfback Sam Williams was denied a seemingly fair try midway through the first half.

On-field referee Ashley Klein awarded the try but his decision was overturned in the box, claiming Williams had knocked on. The Bulldogs scored on the next set, racing to a 14-0 lead.

Young Raiders cop a thrashing

RAIDERS under-20s coach Mick Mantelli hopes Saturday's embarrassing 50-point flogging is the ''kick in the arse'' the National Youth Competition front-runners need to get their title assault back on track.

The Raiders conceded a whopping 44 unanswered points in the first half before going down 62-12 to the Canterbury Bulldogs at Canberra Stadium.

Mantelli struggled to comprehend his team's fourth loss of the season and the end of a five-game winning streak.

"I'm dumbfounded with the result,'' Mantelli said. "That's not the performance of a top-of-the-table team.

"It's our mental application, how we approach the game.

''Hopefully it's the fair kick in the arse we need.''

Despite the defeat, the Raiders are four points ahead of the Bulldogs on the competition ladder and are in the box seat to take out the minor premiership.
