6:41 pm on 2 September 2012

The Canberra Raiders turned around a 22-6 half time deficit to trump the New Zealand Warriors in the final National Rugby League game of the season at Mt Smart stadium in Auckland.

The Warriors were looking to give retiring stalwart Michael Luck a winning send-off and after two tries to Manu Vatuvei, and one a piece for Ben Matulino and Pita Godinet they led 22-6 at half time.

But the Raiders came back strongly and blew the Warriors away with six second half tries to comfortably win the game 42-22.
