THE Raiders are un­de­feated since coach Rama Chand took over the white­board but he said he would con­tinue to ask more and more of his group as each week passed.

Whit­sun­day con­tin­ued its good form of late, over­com­ing Mackay City on Satur­day in a grand fi­nal re­match.

While there was clear im­prove­ment in the team, par­tic­u­larly in the sec­ond half, Chand said the bench­mark would grow.

“They’ve been with me for four weeks now,” he said.

“Ev­ery week they know my ex­pec­ta­tion level goes up and they started de­liv­er­ing to­day... ev­ery player played.”

Whit­sun­day trailed 14-8 at half­time be­fore run­ning home with a wet sail to atone for a dis­ap­point­ing round one loss to Red­skins.

Prop Bill Cross­ley crossed in the fi­nal 10 min­utes to se­cure a hard-fought victory
