Sharks score. Gibbs scores off rebounding kick which bounced up to Ross who then offloaded to Gibbs who crashed over. That was Gibbs' first try since 2005. Gordon converts. Sharks lead 32-18 with 6 mins left.

Sharks score. Ryan gets the try in the corner off a pass which has gone about 5 meters forward. Refs have been the Sharks' best players tonight. Touch judge that "missed" the forward pass is a former Sharks player. Gordon converts. Sharks lead 38-18 with 1 min left.

As It Happened: Raiders V Sharks - NRL
Round 26 NRL @ Canberra Stadium

As It Happened:

Almost ready for kickoff in the NRL in what will be the last game Thompson, Williams and Berrigan play for the Raiders.

FIRST HALF

Teams are out on the field and we're ready to go! Raiders kickoff.

Sharks butcher a certain try! Gordon was over the line and decided to pass for some strange reason and the ball ended up going out.

Video ref Sharks, they think try but are checking obstruction. Feki goes over in the corner. Looked like Sami was obstructed but the video ref doesn't think so. Try awarded. Gordon attempts to convert from the sideline and gets it. Sharks lead 6-0 after 4 mins.

Sharks were deep on the attack but good Raiders defence holds them out. Raiders make an error after getting a penalty and the Sharks begin working it out of their end.

The play is going end to end at the moment with both sides getting to their kicks. Raiders have settled things down after conceding the early try.

Raiders get a penalty on the 5th tackle and will have a full set deep on the attack. Big chance to hit back.

Raiders score! Big Shillington crashes over for the try off a good pass from McCrone. That's Shillo's first try since 2011! Croker takes the conversion and is successful. Scores are level at 6 all between the Raiders and Sharks after 17 mins.

Video ref Raiders, ref thinks no try. Thompson steams onto a pass and drives for the line but looks to be just short. No try, Raiders play the ball.

Video ref Sharks, they think try and are checking the contest for a high ball. Tupou and Feki contest the mark and the ball rebounds off one of them into Lewis' arms and he runs in to score. Try awarded. Gordon converts. Sharks lead 12-6 after 24 mins.

Time off with Luke Lewis down injured for the Sharks. He gets up eventually and will play on. Sharks have a scrum after a Raiders lost ball.

Sharks force a drop out with a grubber which Milford has to clean up. Big defence needed here from the Raiders.

Raiders defend the repeat set well and the Sharks kick the ball dead.

Sharks force another drop out with a kick that rebounded off the posts. The drop out goes out on the full and the Sharks will get a penalty right in front. Gordon is going to take the two. Penalty successful. Sharks lead 14-6 with 3 mins until half time.

Raiders score! Milford just flashed trough the defence off a great Williams pass and put a great step on Gordon then put the afterburners on and sprinted in to get the try. Such pace! Croker converts.

Half time Sharks lead Raiders 14-12.

SECOND HALF

Teams are out on the field for the second half of NRL at Canberra Stadium. Sharks lead Raiders 14-12. Sharks kickoff and restart play.

Thompson goes very close to scoring but is just held up by desperate Sharks defenders.

Raiders force a drop out with a good Williams kick and chase from Campese which forces a knock on in goal from Gordon.

Croker loses the ball very close to the line whilst attempting to score. Sharks begin working it out of their end.

Sauiluma sent for 10 in the bin for a professional foul.

Sharks score. Robson rolls over the line in a tackle by Papalii after stepping through the defence. Sauiluma was binned for attempting to drag a Shark out after a break down the field was made. Conversion successful. Sharks lead 20-12 after 52 mins.

Ross placed on report for a semi spear tackle on Milford but he's ok.

Video ref Raiders, they think try and are checking obstruction. Milford steps trough off a good Campese pass and grounds the ball. Thompson has contacted a Shark but its highly doubtful if he would have stopped Milford. Try disallowed. Penalty to Sharks for obstruction.

There's a scuffle in mid field and both teams come together in a big huddle and push and shove. Nothing much in it and it will be play on. Wait no, Croker is placed on report. This is a shocking decision! Croker did absolutely nothing wrong! Penalty to Sharks.

There's a lot of feeling in this game of a sudden! Some huge charges into the defence by the Raiders.

Raiders score! Shillington storms onto a pass at huge speed and crashes over the line for his second try of the game! Huge runs by the Raiders forwards in the last few minutes! Croker converts. Sharks lead 20-18 with 18 mins left.

Time off with Morris down hurt. He got absolutely smashed in a huge tackle from White. White is put on report and Sharks get a penalty.

Sharks score. Peachey steps through the defence and Milford almost holds him up but just can't quite manage to stop him getting the try. Gordon converts. Sharks lead 26-18 with 9 mins left.

Papalii placed on report for a dangerous tackle.

Sharks score. Gibbs scores off rebounding kick which bounced up to Ross who then offloaded to Gibbs who crashed over. That was Gibbs' first try since 2005. Gordon converts. Sharks lead 32-18 with 6 mins left.

Sharks score. Ryan gets the try in the corner off a pass which has gone about 5 meters forward. Refs have been the Sharks' best players tonight. Touch judge that "missed" the forward pass is a former Sharks player. Gordon converts. Sharks lead 38-18 with 1 min left.

Full time Sharks defeat Raiders 38-18. Now Raiders fans turn our attention to the Holden Cup finals.

Congratulations to Shaun Berrigan on a wonderful career.

Full Time: Sharks 38 - Raiders 18

Holden Cup Match Report: Raiders V Sharks

The Canberra Raiders Holden Cup side have survived a late scare in the second half to hold onto a 36-34 win over the Cronulla Sharks at Canberra Stadium.

Coach Mick Mantelli said in the lead up to the match that he was looking for his side to remain focused on the task at hand despite having already locked up the minor premiership last week.

Whilst Mantelli will be pleased with their first half effort which saw the side advance to a 24-6 halftime lead, he will be disappointed with Canberra’s second half effort.

Despite opening the scoring in the 50th minute through Jonathon Reuben, his second for the match, the Sharks went onto score four quick-fire tries in-between the 55th and 61st minute mark.

The Raiders managed to hit back through blockbusting centre Brenko Lee in the 67th minute but a try to Sharks winger Dallas Wells in the 74th minute sent a sharp scare through the Raiders in the final five minutes of the match.

Sharks defeat Raiders in heated battle

Cronulla have booked an NRL week one home finals berth against North Queensland after running over the top of a fiery Raiders outfit 38-18 at Canberra Stadium.

The victory may have come at a terrible cost for the Sharks however, after NSW Blues prop Andrew Fifita limped off the field in the 22nd minute with what appeared to be a lower leg complaint.

Sharks five-eighth Todd Carney and second-rower Anthony Tupou were late withdrawals before the match and were replaced by Chad Townsend and debutant Tupou Sopoaga respectively.

The 13th placed Raiders were just two points behind with ten minutes to play, but just like their NRL season they faded late to let in three tries and slump to their sixth straight loss.

After two tries apiece in the first half, the all-but meaningless match exploded in the 51st minute when Raiders centre Sami Sauiluma was sin binned for a professional foul after holding down Sosaia Feki following a Sharks break.

The Sharks, who were up just two points at the time, capitalised immediately through a try to halfback Jeff Robson to give themselves a 20-12 lead.

However things only got more heated between the two sides, Jarrod Croker becoming the first of three Raiders players to to be placed on report following a scuffle.

Prop Brett White and Josh Papalii were also put on report following dangerous tackles.

The Raiders also managed to transfer their aggression to attack, prop David Shillington crashing over for his second try of the match after failing to cross the white line in more than two years to reduce the deficit to two points.

However the Sharks finished strongly, interchange Tyrone Peachey rewarded for a stellar performance in the 70th minute when he danced his way through the Raiders to give his side a 26-18 lead.

The match was sealed in sensational fashion in the 75th minute when Sharks interchange Bryce Gibbs scored his first NRL try in eight years, before Beau Ryan also got a piece of the action in the 77th minute.

The win put the Sharks up to fifth place on the NRL ladder ahead of the Bulldogs going into next week's finals.

NRL Match Report: Sharks V Raiders

The Canberra Raiders have gone down 38-18 in a fiery match at Canberra Stadium in what was the Green Machine’s final [NRL] match of the year.

Whilst Canberra may have lost on the scoreboard they portrayed a fighting spirit, an array of exciting youth and a pride in the club that will hold them in good stead building towards next year.

They also had the chance to farewell departing stars Joel Thompson and Sam Williams and former international Shaun Berrigan, who retires.

The match got off to a bad start for the Raiders with Sosaia Feki opening the scoring in just the fourth minute although David Shillington hit back for in the 16th minute, in what was his first try of the year.

Kimmorley's thoughts on Raiders V Sharks match

The Sharks had a lot of players out either rested or carrying injuries, and they were already guaranteed a home finals spot. They finish in fifth spot and with a positive for and against, which is a nice way to round out a 26-game season.

The big news will be whether Andrew Fifita's calf scare during the game turns out to be a serious injury because you need all your players playing at finals time and we saw how much of an impact Fifita can have during Origin.

It was a very good game of football, very physical Sunday. There was a lot of end-to-end action. It's probably the most physical the Raiders have played for a number of weeks.

Tyrone Peachey was very good off the bench and - without some of their superstars - the Sharks were still able to score 38 points.

For the Raiders, it finishes a disappointing year that had on- and off-field dramas, but there was good character shown. And congratulations to Shaun Berrigan, who's played the final game of an outstanding career and was very good Sunday - I thought he was their best player, so it's good to see another legend finish on a good note.
