NRL Round 25 Match Report: Raiders V Warriors

A disastrous second half display by the Canberra Raiders has seen the side slip to a 50-16 loss to the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium.

The Warriors were well in the contest at half-time trailing 20-12 however a disappointing defensive effort in the second half was the catalyst for the unacceptable loss.

New Zealand’s first half lead was built on the back of an incredible performance from winger Manu Vatuvei who registered a first half hat-trick whilst centre Jarrod Croker scored a brilliant first half double for the Raiders.

Alas, Canberra was bitterly disappointing in the second stanza as the Warriors halves and outside backs ran riot.

Rocketing Reuben helps young Raiders to minor premiership

LIGHTNING quick winger Jonathon Reuben showed the Canberra Raiders what they will be missing next season as he led the Green Machine to the Holden Cup under-20s minor premiership.

Reuben, who is poised to join the Sydney Roosters, played a hand in two match-sealing tries in Saturday's 26-16 win over the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium.

The Raiders have wrapped up top spot with a round to spare, although they rested three of their stars.

Holden Cup fullback of the year Jack Ahearn and blockbusting forward Tevita Pangai were both rested, while Junior Kiwis international Jeremy Hawkins - who along with Ahearn re-signed until 2015 on Friday - also missed the trip across the Tasman.

The 20-year-old Reuben showed his immense ability in helping break a 16-all deadlock in the second half.
