canberra raiders vs sydney roosters results, kick off time, updates, Round 13 news

Canberra has held off a late fightback to beat the Roosters 22-16 despite a couple of errors at the death.

The Raiders looked like blowing a solid half-time lead for the umpteenth time – they’ve become known as “the faders” as a result of the unflattering habit over the last few years.

The Chooks scored two quick tries in the second half and it looked like the same old story was unfolding in the nation’s capital.

But a try to Matt Timoko pushed the lead back out to six points, and that’s where it stayed.

A missed conversion from Jamal Fogarty and a missed field goal attempt from Matt Frawley could have cost the Raiders dearly, but they were able to hold out the Chooks in a last-play thriller.

“You don’t get better Sunday entertainment than that – right down to the wire,” Phil Gould said.

“Great spirit, great club spirit from the Raiders today.”
