Season 2018 is over for half the teams in the competition. The players are dreaming of white sandy beaches and end of year trips. Yet before the bags are packed and we erase from our memories the often terrible performances of the teams that finished in the bottom eight, let’s have a look at some of the positives that they had.

Canberra Raiders

The Raiders can score points. In 2018, the Raiders were the second highest scoring team in the comp (behind Souths) with 563 points.

The majority of those points came from their 93 tries which show they have plenty of attacking potential.

What will also be pleasing to those in the nation’s capital is that six out of the 14 games they lost this year was with a margin of four points or less.
