Keep cool, says Tapine
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.
