Round 14, 2009: Cronulla ventured to Canberra on the back of two consecutive wins and looking for a third, to take on a Raiders side buoyed by the good form of five-eighth Terry Campese.

The Raiders kicked away to an early lead as Campese sent Tom Learoyd-Lahrs in under the posts and the Canberra number six again had a hand the team's second.

Down by 10 the Sharks returned serve with back-to-back tries thanks to fullback Nathan Stapleton and Captain Paul Gallen, but the hosts would soon regain the lead when Bronson Harrison crossed the stripe.

For the second time in the match the Green Machine would go out by a double-figure margin, but the never-say-die attitude of the Sharks ensured the latter stages of the match would be tightly contested.

A freak bounce saw Ben Pomeroy in for a four-pointer, before Gallen took the game and made it his own with a second try to arrest control in the dying stages.
