By the Numbers: Raiders v Eels

After an error-riddled match against the Broncos in round four, the Raiders put together a much-improved display on Saturday against the Eels. 

The Raiders dominated the Eels in the first half, leading 22-6 at the break after having 19 sets to the Eels 12. Possession evened up by full-time after the Eels mounted a comeback, but the damage was already done. 

Having more ball allowed the Raiders big men and outside backs to roll down the field with ease, out-gaining the Eels to the tune of 352 metres. Making yardage after contact played a big role in this, with the Raiders registering 542 post-contact metres compared to the Eels 386 metres.
