Scoring spree too powerful for Jets

The Raiders have bounced back from last week's defeat with a dominant display over the Newtown Jets at Raiders Belconnen this Saturday.

Both Corey Harawira-Naera and Bringham Moeakiola scored doubles in the 60-20 romp, where the Raiders scored six second-half tries.

Raiders’ half, Brad Schneider was perfect with the boot slotting 10 from 10 conversions.

The Jets opened the scoring in the 2nd minute when Zac Woolford broke the line at midfield and passed to Luke Metcalf who scored under the posts.

The Raiders hit back in the seventh minute when Corey Harawira-Naera caught a Matt Frawley kick five meters out from the line and ran through the Jets’ defence to score.

The Jets got out to a 10-6 lead after Edward Aiono scored out wide in the 14th minute.

The Raiders got their first lead of the game in the 25th minute thanks to English young gun Harry Rushton. Rushton pounced on a loose ball off a kick and charged over the line with Jets’ defenders hanging off him. Brad Schneider converted making the score 12-10

Schneider then scored a try of his own, taking on the defence close to the line and powering over. He then converted his own try taking the score out to 18-10.

The Jets scored through Jack A Williams in the 34th minute but the Raiders hit right back just before halftime when Corey Horsburgh crashed through from close range to give the Green Machine a 24-16 lead.

The Raiders had the perfect start to the second half. In the first 10 minutes, Corey Harawira-Naera and Leo Thompson both scored from close range putting the Raiders’ lead out to 36-16.

Raiders winger, Bringham Moeakiola, continued to pile on the punishment when he scored back to back tries both off spectacular passes from Albert Hopoate and Adam Cook respectively.

Kai O’Donnell then got the Raiders over the half-century mark when he crossed the line - taking the score to 54-16.

The Jets scored a late consolation try before the Raiders hit back through Elijah Anderson to take the score out to 60-20.

The only judiciary concern for the Raiders will be Kai O’Donnell who was put on report in the first half for a late hit on Jack A Williams.
