By the Numbers: Raiders v Tigers

Rapana,J 1731981

The Raiders attack fired in yesterday's 40-point mauling of the Tigers, with Jordan Rapana, Josh Papalii, Aidan Sezer and Jarrod Croker all having standout matches. 

After being dominated in the possession stakes in the past two matches, the Raiders turned it around against the Tigers, enjoying 56% of the ball.

The possession helped the Raiders big boppers charge down the field, out gaining the Tigers by a whooping 517 metres. The away side didn't help themselves when they did get their hands on the ball, making 16 errors to the Raiders 11. 

See the five key stats from the match in the graphic below. 

Flying winger Jordan Rapana continued his hot streak against the Tigers, taking his try tally from the last three matches between the two sides to eight. Rapana and Papalii both ran for over 200 metres, with Clay Priest chipping in a handy 157 metres from the bench.

Dave Taylor was very solid in his club debut for the Raiders, running for 103 metres and making 14 tackles in 36 minutes on the field. 

In his return from injury, Captain Jarrod Croker was straight back to his brilliant best, kicking 7/8 conversions and scoring a try to take him to 99 career tries.
