It was anything but a fairy tale return for Andrew Johns on Monday night after Newcastle’s two-game winning streak came to a screeching halt courtesy of a 48-14 loss to Canberra.

Rated as more chance of winning a chook raffle then defeating Newcastle, the young green brigade scored the first try of the night before leading 16-12 at the break.

Despite giving away the first points of the second forty to the Knights off a try to Corey Patterson in the 43rd minute, Canberra stood their ground before exhibiting their best performance of the new season.

For the next 26 minutes, the Raiders snatched 5 tries care of William Zillman (2) , Scott Logan, Colin Best and Phil Graham to run up an unassailable lead.

A horror run of luck with frequent errors ensured the Knights were out of the ball game for the final quarter of the second term.

The win is a first for Raiders coach Neil Henry and gives Canberra their first competition points in 2007, something the Roosters, Brisbane and the Wests Tigers are still in the hunt for.


In premier league the Knights scraped home with a narrow 26-24 win over Canberra.
