Play resumes in Canberra. The Raiders have it first.

Newcastle Knights 14-12

HALFTIME in the Canberra suburb of Bruce, and the visitors hold a slender two-point lead after initially racing to a 14-0 scoreline early. Since Gidley's penalty goal for the Knights, the Raiders have dominated most of the play. Momentum definitely with the Raiders!
