The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NRL - FA­TIMA KDOUH

CAN­BERRA will take a page from South Syd­ney’s play­book to­day when they take on St Ge­orge Illawarra in Mudgee.

Raiders cap­tain Jar­rod Cro­ker said the Rabbitohs had worked out how to beat the team now widely con­sid­ered the com­pe­ti­tion’s bench­mark.

“When the Bunnies are play­ing their best footy it’s with those big Burgess boys just rolling through teams,” he said. “They were phys­i­cal up the mid­dle and matched the Drag­ons for­ward pack.

“It’s ob­vi­ously a lit­tle thing we looked at (this week) as well; the Bunnies did that to us (a few weeks ago) so it was a bit of a les­son learned there as well.”

The Drag­ons are breath­ing fire and are out to smoke Ricky’s Raiders Sub­scribe now. Watch
