Warriors too good at home

5:40 pm on 31 July 2011

The Warriors cemented their place in the National Rugby League's top eight with a comprehensive 29-10 win over the Raiders at Mt Smart Stadium, a victory which ended Canberra's playoff aspirations.

The Auckland club scored 21 unanswered points in the second spell after going into halftime trailing 10-8 to remain sixth on the ladder four points adrift of the fifth placed Dragons and two clear of the seventh placed Tigers.

It was the Warriors fourth win on the trot.

The loss however leaves the Raiders languishing in 13th place, six points outside the top eight, and with only five rounds remaining in the regular season, zero chance of making the finals.
