ERRORS COST RAIDERS WIN OVER BRONCOS
by Katarina Slavich
The Brisbane Broncos have snapped the Canberra Raiders three-game winning run, with a 26-18 win at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday night.
The Broncos jumped to a 24-0 lead by the 44th minute, thanks to a string of errors from our guys.
Raiders coach Ricky Stuart said those errors knocked them around, but they did hit back in the second half.
"In the last twenty minutes we opened up and played a bit of footy, and looked like the team we can be," he said.
"The errors in that 25 minute period were so crucial, there was an error upon error and three tries. But you can't give good football teams that luxury."
The win sees the Broncos back on the winning trail and in the top four on the NRL ladder, after three frustrating losses.
But Raiders coach Ricky Stuart said lessons learned from the defeat may just help the green machine become a top four team this year.
"They're things we can fix easily, but we need to do it quick. The boys are disappointed but you've got to take away things from a loss like that which will improve you" he said.
