Time off. Lafai has been dumped in a very dangerous tackle here. Cotric in a bit of trouble.

CNK reaches out and plants it! Oh boy. Dragons in all sorts.
No dice for Croker.

Hodgson with a 1-on-1 strip just inside the Dragons half and there's another chance for the visitors!
Canberra all over the Dragons at the moment, looking likely every time while the Dragons are lacking serious polish when they do get a chance to attack.

Another miss from the Raiders' star centre though!

Late changes are aplenty for the Saints - Hunt starts at half with Nicholls out, Vaughan and Frizell join the pack with Lawrie moving to lock and Host/Leilua benched. Canberra have a couple of switches with Soliola starting in favour of Papali'i, who is benched. Guler replaces Sutton (injured) on the interchange.
Good evening! Round 17 wraps in Wollongong, with the Raiders having abseiled down the Illawarra escarpement to reach tonight's venue. Canberra will commemorate NAIDOC week by wearing their Indigenous jersey, while the Dragons are in the Red V.
