Canberra Raiders 2018 season review

Season 2018 will go down as the ultimate year of 'what if' for the Canberra Raiders after a number of close losses throughout the season left them in 10th position for the third time in the past four years.

The absence of international hooker Josh Hodgson for 14 weeks with an ACL tear was a significant blow and his importance to the side was rammed home when he spearheaded a 48-12 thumping of the Wests Tigers in his return game.

The Raiders' wretched season also included Jack Wighton's suspension after he pleaded guilty to assault and the loss of captain Jarrod Croker with a dislocated knee in round 18.

Season review: Questions remain over Canberra Raiders with finals the pass mark

The same questions remain about the Canberra Raiders after a frustrating NRL season where they've missed the finals for the fifth time in six years. Croker, St George Illawarra premiership halfback Jamie Soward and Raiders fan Sean Ferrari, who hosts fan website The Greenhouse's post-match Facebook Live, run their eyes over the Green Machine.

"We need to look at how we won those games [against the Roosters and Rabbitohs] - completions were very high, defensively we were very good. Then take a lot of confidence out of them ... and work on that throughout the off-season," Jarrod Croker said.
