Wests Tigers gunned down by Raiders

12:27 pm on 27 March 2012

West Tigers' early season woes continued Monday night when Canberra inflicted a third loss in four games on the pre-season NRL premiership favourites at Campbelltown Stadium.

The Raiders chalked up a comfortable 30-16 victory, led by their skipper Terry Campese who easily won the five eighths battle against Benji Marshall.

Canberra's Australian prop David Shillington tore an abdominal muscle during the match, putting him in doubt for the Anzac test against the Kiwis on the 20th of next month.
