Keep cool, says Tap­ine

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

CAN­BERRA for­ward Joe Tap­ine has called Cronulla a “dirty” team and says the Raiders must avoid get­ting frus­trated by the pre­miers’ tac­tics.

The Green Ma­chine re­mains an out­side chance of play­ing in the fi­nals af­ter Satur­day’s win over South Syd­ney, but must win at South­ern Cross Group Sta­dium this week­end.

“They’re a bit of a scrag­ging team. They like to get dirty,” he said yes­ter­day.

“We’ve just got to con­trol our game – and also keep our cool.”

Tap­ine was out­stand­ing in deputis­ing for sus­pended star sec­ond- rower Josh Pa­palii against Souths, play­ing 80 min­utes and set­ting up a try in the 32- 18 vic­tory.
