Unfamiliar territory for win-less Raiders
TWO losses from two starts is uncharted waters for the Whitsunday Raiders, but they’re not jumping ship just yet.
On Saturday night Kuttabul stole a thrilling game at the Whitsunday Sportspark, securing a late try to notch an emotion-charged 21-20 win.
The Raiders had a chance to secure victory with the last kick of the game however the penalty attempt was waved away – leaving Whitsunday 0-2 to start the Mackay and District Rugby Union season just one year after not losing a game.
Raiders’ enforcer Brook Cadwallader said there was no need to panic.
“It’s a long season ahead. We’ve got a lot of players coming back and the coach isn’t even here yet, so it should be interesting to see what happens when he rocks up.”
