It was a great weekend for our NSW Cup and Jersey Flegg sides, with both teams recording victories in round 19 action.


The Raiders NSW Cup team recorded their third consecutive win after a 24-20 victory over the St George Illawarra Dragons at WIN Stadium in Wollongong on Friday night. 

The Raiders lead 18-6 at half-time after a double to centre Brad Morkos and tries to Jaxon Lavender and Jed Stuart.  

But the Dragons fought back after the break with tries to Treigh Stewart and Alexander Lobb closing the score-line to 18-16 with 20 minutes remaining. 

Playing fullback after an injury to Xavier Savage, Nick Cotric scored a great runaway try with six minutes remaining. 

Halfback Mitch Henderson converted to extend the visitors lead to 24-16. 

Dragons centre Max Feagai set up a grandstand finish with a try in the 77th minute to bring the score to 24-20, but the Raiders were able to hold on for victory. 

The win sees the Raiders finish the round in fifth place on the ladder, even on points with the fourth placed Warriors. 

The Raiders take on the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles next Sunday afternoon at HE Laybutt Field in Sydney. 

Jersey Flegg Cup

The Raiders Jersey Flegg side claimed their second straight win after defeating the St George Illawarra Dragons 20-16 at Centenary Field in Wollongong on Saturday. 

A great first half by the Raiders set up the win, with the side holding off a Dragons comeback. 

The Raiders led 16-0 at the half-time break after tries to Livai Kaloutolu, Keahn Skipps and Siamani Leuluai. 

Leuluai scored his second of the day just after half-time to extend the visitors lead to 20-0 after 36 minutes of play. 

The Dragons scored three straight tries to get within four points, but it wasn't enough as the Raiders held on to victory. 

The Raiders travel to Sydney to take on the Wests Tigers at Lidcombe Oval on Sunday afternoon.
