Raiders upset Sydney Roosters
August 19, 2018 5:01 pm
Canberra Raiders have put a dent in the Sydney Roosters’ minor premiership aspirations with a 14-12 upset victory yesterday.
The Roosters could have gone a game clear on top of the ladder with a win at the Raiders home ground.
Instead, their poor record in the nation’s capital continued, where they haven’t won since 2010.
The Roosters are locked in a three-way battle at the top of the table for the minor premiership with Melbourne and South Sydney.
The Storm are ahead because of their superior point’s difference.
Trent Robinson’s team had a chance to score in the final minute as they charged in the attack, but a knock-on turned the ball over to see the Raiders home and reverse their 2018 fortunes in close games.
In the other NRL match yesterday the Bulldogs beat Warriors 27- 26.
