What a great little catch and pass by KB for the try.

So why does whitehead not have to go off like Jacks did?

Also, how was it not a penalty when Papenhuyzen got tackled without the ball?

Can’t believe the tears over players getting strapped up at a stoppage of play.

Agree with this.

Great kick by Hughes for Lee's try and good to see Lee continue to chase kick. Not sure why Nicoll-Klokstad didn't ground the ball. Hughes made a great tackle to save a try up the other end.

I thought we were lucky with the yellow card I don't think it was a professional foul.

Get out to an 8 point lead and then Dale throws that pass, to let them straight back in.

Unfortunately no one is having a standout game. These conditions must be far worse in person.

Any update on Bromwich?

Tino having a quiet one due to either his new hair do or playing in Felises position.

I'm getting sick of all the Raiders' forward passes

It feels so long ago... I miss the Storm from that Roosters game way back when...

Happy with the win, of course, but that wasn’t particularly inspiring.

Better team gets us tonight. Fortunate for the Whitehead clanger and Paps turning nothing into something.

46 missed tackles
67% completion rate

Have to fix that up.

Obviously we didn't play that well tonight with alot of fumbling errors and we got lucky with a few injuries to the raiders.

However lets remember that we are now 7-2, we have got a few key players to return and we have had to relocate to another state on very short notice, plenty of clubs would of fallen over the last 2 weeks against last years GF teams, we are going ok I reckon with alot of room for improvement.
Did anyone really think we would win both these games without munster? another great effort I reckon.

Storm2016 good point regarding winning both games without Munster.

Jesse Bromwich set to miss 1 - 2 weeks with medial ligament.
