The Canberra Raiders will live to fight another day in the NRl rugby league finals after recording a nailbiting 24-22 upset over Penrith in the first round of the NRL playoff's at CUA Stadium.

Scoring four tries a piece it was a miss by the competition's leading goalkicker Penrith winger Michael Gordon which proved the difference.

The win keeps the seventh-placed Raiders' premiership hopes alive and ends the fifth-placed Warriors season after the Auckland side's loss to the Gold Coast on Friday night and the Sydney Roosters' victory over the Wests Tigers.
