It's a shame it's coinciding with some of the best middle and defence I've seen from the Raiders

56th min TRY RAIDERS to John Bateman, backing up a great bust up the middle from Hudson Young. Jarrod Croker converts. He's missed just one all day.

Raiders 24-8

Great run Hudson! This is much better!

This is why Havalii should have been on earlier, needed some go forward.

Yeah he's not an edge. Couple more kilos on him and he could be pretty solid there in the middle consistently

Fantastic from havili and Hudson there.

Don’t understand people lamenting our forwards oriented play. It is absolutely our comparative advantage on almost every team in the comp.

I don’t know that he needs more kilos
He looks a really good high energy mobile lock type to me
But you could be right

It’s nice to see him develop the way he has this yeah though

Haha Jonneh

That why you can’t hand cuff him
That’s dreadfully unlucky not to be a try
