From the next set of six, Edwards reaches out under a double tackle at the same spot and scores the try. (1H 05:41)
Johnson feints a pass on the left side and sucks in the line, he jinks through and sprints for the try as the crowd goes wild! (1H 06:36)
Johnson turns provider with a cut out pass to the left wing, all Maumalo has to do is all over the line for the easy try. (1H 08:04)
Lolohea tries a grubber down the left wing, the last defender is too worried about the wing outside him, it’s Lolohea himself who chases and touches down for the try! (2H 10:25)
Johnson passes to the right edge where Allwood is waiting to gratefully accept and run a few yards for another easy score. (2H 11:48)

Cornish passes to Pangai Jnr on the left side who beats two and scores nears the goal posts. (2H 14:50)

The Raiders get the ball from the restart, Cornish is released up the middle for a barnstorming run carrying three Warriors over the line for a bonus point try! (2H 17:43)
Cornish just cemented himself in thousands of fantasy teams with that score, very impressive. (2H 17:43)
