Raiders Fail to Repel Storm Troopers

Article excerpt

CANBERRA coach David Furner has demanded his players take some accountability for their actions after their NRL finals hopes were effectively ended by a ruthless Melbourne side at Canberra Stadium yesterday.

The ladder-leading Storm chalked up their seventh successive victory, brushing aside the Raiders 26-0 as they become the first team to hold the Green Machine scoreless at either Canberra Stadium or their previous home ground Seiffert Oval.

aIf you're coming up with those errors, you mightn't find yourself in the side,a Furner said.

aThe injury list I've got at the moment has taken the quality out of that team. The scoreboard certainly didn't reflect the attitude in our side.

aWe were probably our own worst enemy in the first half where we got a little bit flighty trying to push a couple of passes.a a[pounds sterling] AAP
