Canberra have recorded their first win of 2018 - despite finishing the game against Canterbury with just 14 fit players.
The Raiders ended their four-game losing streak with a gutsy 26-10 victory over the Bulldogs last night.
And they had to do it the hard way after losing three players during the physical match.
Both Ato Hingano and Michael Oldfield were forced from the field in the first half after suffering head knocks. Then halfback Sam Williams was carted off in the second half with a knee complaint.
Aiden Sezer also went off in the dying stages after Josh Jackson 'took his head off'. But Canberra stuck solid and their defence got them home to a 16-point win.
"It was nice for me as a coach that I see every day the grind and the effort coming out in what I can remember as one of the toughest wins I've been involved with," Raiders coach Ricky Stuart said.
"The adversity we were under at half-time with three HIA's that weren't going to come back onto the field, I asked them for extra effort and it's amazing how they got through that period of 40 minutes and we still played footy.
"We know deep down what we're about and what the jumper is about. I've never been prouder of the effort."
