15th min It’s still 6-0 to the Raiders, but they’ve dominated possession and territory. A couple of try scoring chances missed, with Thomas Gaffey just tackled over the sideline.

24th min TRY RAIDERS to Clay Webb. Great work to follow through a high kick to the try line! Junior Tupou cannot convert.

It follows some great try saving defence at the other end, and a forced turnover.

Raiders beating themselves? Typical
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

32nd min TRY KNIGHTS to Noah Nailagoliva. It looked like the Raiders had saved a try, just beforehand, but the referee ruled the Knights had not knocked on, but the Raiders had knocked the ball free. Converted Radzievic.

Knights 12-10

35th min TRY KNIGHTS to Kodi Crowther. They back it up with another quick fire try out wide in the scoreboard corner. Converted Radzievic.

Knights 18-10

Now the Knights knock on from the restart. But Canberra can’t take advantage... final pass on the fifth tackle ruled forward.

41st min TRY KNIGHTS to Loagan Radzievic. Again the referee rules what appeared a dropped ball from the Knights is knocked down by the Raiders... and Newcastle score from the scrum feed. Fortunes have turned very quickly at Seiffert. He converts his own try from in front.

Knights 24-10

57th min TRY KNIGHTS to hooker Riley Jones. The referee rules he’s grounded it. That’s the ball game. Shame for the Raiders as they’ve put in a good dig, even though outside of finals contention. Radzievic can’t convert.

Knights 28-20

Two minutes to go.

Newcastle Knights kick off in SG Ball. This is a big clash. Knights in third, Raiders in fifth. Raiders need to win to secure a top eight spot.

Clock is counting forward instead of down, as usual at Seiffert, so sorry for any confusion on timing of the scoring plays!
