The Canberra Raiders have upset the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Cairns in impressive fashion.
The Raiders were excellent in the second half, running in five tries to blow Souths off the park.
Canberra started brilliantly, Jordan Rapana forcing his way over in the right corner.
But this woke South Sydney up. Chris McQueen squared the ledger.
And Bryson Goodwin extended Souths’ lead when he scored off a smart Luke Keary kick.
Just before half-time, Greg Inglis touched down and the Raiders were in trouble. They were down by 12 at the break.
But it was Canberra who started the second half with a flurry. Edrick Lee was in after less than two minutes.
Then Shannon Boyd bustled his way over. Souths’ lead was cut to two.
But you can’t write Souths off, and they went back ahead by eight points through this fantastic play.
However, the game continued to see-saw. Josh Papalii’s try meant Canberra were back to within two points.
Then they sensationally took the lead through Blake Austin. The Rabbitohs were wilting.
Lee capped off a fantastic performance from Canberra with his second try.
Joel Reddy dived over for Souths in the final minute but it wasn’t enough, the Raiders had gotten the job done.
