Got to question the selection. We don’t have the forward muscle we had over the past 2 seasons as a lot of players are playing an age up. You would think after the round 1 hiding, you would bring in some heavy artillery like Tomuli-AhKuoi who was a standout in Matt’s and LD cup last year but no. I would bring him and the big Jesse Millin to the side. Tomuli-AhKuoi and Milin off the bench for Elvis and the other new FR? The bench yesterday were well below par to cover the forwards. The wingers and Centre’s need to stay on their man and not come in. We fix up our go forward and our defence on the edges, we will go better.

Jesse Milin was just terrific in Laurie Daley Cup today. Mitchell Brophy should probably come up as well. Equally, I understand why players who’ve been brought into Canberra from other States are being given a good shot.

Great to see the Monaro Colts getting the win today as well. First win in the opening two rounds in any of the junior reps grades. Finished strongly.

One other observation... James Croker is reminiscent of a young Jarrod. The white headgear and the running style. Wouldn't it be great to have another Croker turning out for the Raiders!

Definitely rate Millin as he has a high work rate but also a big lad similar to Clydesdale last season. Croker could be an ace if brought up to play SG and would be great for the club. Would be hard for Brophy to replace Caccioti who’s solid all round. I believe Alaia is a genuine 9 too and can play a number of positions so we’d have 3 hookers if Brophy was to come up. I understand giving the new players a start but given the last two games and almost 100pts put on us…need the respect back.

Matt’s 22 side - missed out on GF losing to eventual premiers in golden point (the magpies)
That’s side graduated to SG 2023 - got minor premiership and missed out on GF losing to eventual premiers the Eels.
LD cup 2023 also lost GF.

A lot of great players in this age group are either playing up or are yet to be selected. The magpies side that won Matt’s 22, few of them are now top 30 for tigers and even a couple debuted FG. All of them were selected and played the first round of SG Ball except Galvin. Why not us? A lot of last years players who are still eligible to play were at the grounds to watch the demolition and all said “wished they were out there with their team mates” the last 2 yrs was phenomenal for the age group, all that team building and success to start back at square one…tough pill to swallow for the players and their supporters

AT A GLANCE: The Canberra Raiders suffered a 36-6 defeat in Round 2 of the Tarsha Gale Cup, at the hands of the Illawarra Steelers. The match was effectively all over by half time, with the visiting Steelers piling on five tries and 30 points in the first half. The Raiders' only try came in the 13th minute of the match, when hooker Halle Constable crossed. The Steelers had invited Canberra back into the contest, after producing a couple of errors in their own half. The Constable try saw the Raiders trail by six (12-6). But that was as close as they got.

The Raiders produced a better second half, conceding only one try and creating some opportunities for themselves. But they weren't able to convert those opportunities into points. There were simply too many errors.



In Round 3, the Raiders go on the road for the first time this season, when they travel to Cronulla for a clash with the Sharks. The Sharks are coming off a 22-6 home victory over the Parramatta Eels on Saturday. Second rower Manilita Takapautolo caused some damage for Cronulla, scoring the first two tries of the match. The Sharks scored five tries in all, while holding the Eels out until the 55th minute. They'll be a tough opponent for the Green Machine this week.

Team news: Lara Cosgrove shifts to centre, replacing Jade Harding. Imojean Vea returns to the starting team at five eighth. Molly Chidgey is back at No. 9, with Halle Constable dropping to the bench. Jaida Faleono will start at prop, in place of Angelina Costa. Costa has been named on the interchange list.

AT A GLANCE: The Canberra Raiders have produced back to back losses to start the 2024 Harold Matthews season, falling to the Central Coast Roosters, 38-10, at Morry Breen Oval on Saturday. The two teams went to the break with the scores all tied up, at 10-10. But it was all the Roosters in the second half. A try to Raiders second rower Lochie Ellard in the 17th minute answered the home team's opening salvo - making it 4-4. Ellard did well to bounce his way out of a tackle to score. And a Geordan Amaiu four pointer just before the break kept the Green Machine right in the contest. That was a result of a simple crash ball from close to the line. But it was all the Roosters in the second half. Five tries to nil.



The Raiders head to Cronulla in Round 3 for a meeting with the Sharks. The team from the Shire was beaten at home, 34-20, by the Parramatta Eels on Saturday. The Eels were under threat in the second half, but scored the final two tries to wrap up the victory. Half Lincoln Fletcher and second rower Samual Polley both bagged doubles for the Eels. The Sharks team featured the son of Michael Ennis, Jack, at hooker. Fullback Oliver Lester and lock Thomas Dellow were among the scorers for Cronulla. The Sharks are always tough at home - and it'll be a good win if Canberra can turn it around on the road.

AT A GLANCE: After a big Round 1 loss to the Knights, the SG Ball Raiders looked like a completely different team in their clash with the Steelers on Saturday at Raiders Belconnen. In the first half. The Green Machine was quick out of the blocks, scoring three tries in the opening 10 minutes. They led 18-10 at the half time break. But the Steelers dominated in the second half, scoring six tries and 32 points. The Raiders failed to add a point. When the final siren sounded, the Steelers had secured a whopping 42-18 win.

Ethan Alaia was a late inclusion at five eighth, and he looked terrific with the ball in hand, making many darting runs. Meanwhile halfback Keahn Skipps posted three try assists. Alaia scored the first try of the game in just the third minute, off the back of a penalty and a good pass from Skipps. Centre Mark Tuialii followed up in the 9th minute, scoring from close range. Skipps was again in the thick of it two minutes later, making a great run down the middle, before throwing a long looping pass to winger Lekani Mpaso. Another four pointer.

The Steelers got themselves on the board in the 20th minute, with winger Clay Baldock crossing out wide. Five minutes later, Mark Tuialii got his second try of the day - the result of strong, hard running on the last tackle. But that was the end of the scoring for the Green Machine. Just before half time, centre Hayden Buchanan produced a stunning 70 metre try. And it was all downhill from there. Early in the second half, the visitors scored three tries in the space of six minutes - and they had a stranglehold on the game. Buchanan ended with a hat trick.



The loss sees the Raiders at the foot of the competition ladder, having conceded 98 points in just two games. The Steelers regularly found metres down the middle on Saturday, and clinically exposed the defence on the edges through switches of play. There's lots of work for the Green Machine ahead. Hopefully, Canberra can turn it around when they meet the Sharks in Round 3.

Cronulla suffered a 28-18 loss to the Eels at Shark Park on Saturday - after leading 18-10 at the 50 minute mark. Tries to second rower Tyrese Lokeni and half Dylan Brettle saw the Eels take the lead by the 60th minute - and a four pointer to hooker Jai Camileri in the 68th minute locked up the victory for Parramatta. The Sharks started 2024 with a 44-18 win over the Tigers.

Team news: Izayah Petricevich will turn out for the Canberra Raiders for the first time. He replaces Maika Poese on the wing. Ethan Alaia retains his place at five eighth. Elvis Nauer-Wood returns to the starting line up at prop, with Thomas Lunney replacing Jordan Uta in the second row. Keisaia Su'a has been added to the bench, while Mathias Tomuli-Ah-Kuoi has been named at 18th man.

11th min ERROR SHARKS on the Raiders 10 metre line. They spill it, the first time they get into the Raiders' red zone.

TRY RAIDERS to fullback Elise Simpson. She goes 90 metres, scoring off the scrum play. Lovely shift to the right and she was away. Simpson has some pace in the open. Converted Lara Cosgrove.

17th min Great attack from Canberra down the right edge. Mya McGlynn is tackled high, and the Raiders get the penalty. But it halted all the momentum. And now the Sharks pick up a loose ball. No reward from that penalty.

19th min ERROR SHARKS They loose it on an early tackle on their own 20 metre line. Here's another opportunity for Canberra. Now another penalty on the first tackle, a player held back and she is on the ground. Seems to have been a tackle off the ball on it is on report. Can't quite see which player it is, but she has to come off for an HIA. She's OK.

22nd min TRY SHARKS to Koreti Leilua. Made the break up the middle and she was just too big, too quick to bring down once she gathered pace. No conversion from out wide for Arianna Ruwoldt. The Raiders really should be further in front, given the opportunities they've had.

Raiders 6-4

27th min ERROR SHARKS at the base of a scrum in the middle of the field. Canberra attack from 40 metres out. The Raiders kick late in the set, and Sharks winger knocks the ball on. The Raiders have a scrum, 10 metres out.

Poor option, with the Raiders electing to kick on the second tackle. It goes dead.

33rd min TRY RAIDERS in the corner to Samantha Nealon, well set up by Lahni Hall. The conversion attempt from Cosgrove was on target but it falls short.

Raiders 10-4

Sadly, the Raiders knock on from the kick off.

49th min TRY RAIDERS to fullback Elise Simpson. Another wonderful long range try. Her second of the day. She easily outpaces the chasing defence. Lara Cosgrove converts from in front.

56th min ERROR RAIDERS on the first tackle. Stray pass to Nealon and it gives the Sharks a scrum on the edge of the red zone. Thankfully the Sharks come up with an error on an early tackle.

The Raiders really need to learn how to control the game in the final stages. The Raiders have lost possession on the first tackle twice in the final 10 minutes of the game.

60th min Sharks bomb a try in the final seconds! They shift it left on the last and they knock it on in the grounding, over the line. The Raiders just hold on by the skin of their teeth. First win of the year!

The teams have finished their warm ups in Harold Matthews. Very warm and humid at Cronulla today. Close to 30C, with the humidity making it feel even hotter.

Here come the Raiders now. Canberra kicks off. We're underway!

3rd min TRY RAIDERS Great grubber from Cowling I believe, on the last and second rower Geordan Amaiu threads his way through the traffic and scores! Great conversion from out wide from Jack Milne.

Raiders 6-0

8th min The Raiders run it on the last and finish a metre from the line. And the Sharks make another error in their own red zone on an early tackle. Two in a row.

And now halfback Troy Codey drops the ball on the first tackle.
