AROUND THE GROUNDS | Raiders smarting

The Vodafone Warriors will be extra-wary of a wounded Canberra side when the two teams meet in the next round of the NRL at Eden Park on Saturday, May 10 (5.00pm kick-off; match day sponsor: Vodafone).

The Raiders’ form has been all over the place this season but their 18-54 defeat by Manly yesterday was one of their lowest points in recent times.

Manly was 30-0 ahead inside 24 minutes and 42-4 at halftime with new Kiwi Peta Hiku scoring four tries.

Only a week earlier the Raiders had beaten Melbourne 24-22 but in their previous two matches had lost 12-26 at home to Newcastle and 6-12 away to Penrith.
