The Moment: Welcome back Terry Campese! It wasn’t quite a knockout but the Raiders’ skipper was a clear points winner over his opposite Benji Marshall as the visiting Green Machine put to rest a seven-game losing sequence to the Tigers in Round 4.

Campo set up two tries for team-mates but it was his raid from dummy-half to score himself in the 64th minute that was the important play of the night. With the Raiders leading 18-12 Campese ducked into dummy-half after Travis Waddell was felled just a few metres out. Like all the best players he sensed opportunity and backed his foresight. The No.6 raced out from the play-the-ball, dragging marker Benji Marshall across the goal line with him for a crucial four-pointer.

And Campese’s combination with halfback Josh McCrone has put a smile back on the face of Raiders’ coach David Furner – earlier Campese delivered a pinpoint pass for McCrone to run a great angle to open the Raiders’ scoring in the fifth minute.

As for the Tigers? No cohesion, no discipline, no urgency and no application (48 missed tackles). And Marshall – one of the most devastating attacking players of all time – ran for an all-time low eight metres from just three runs.

Watch Campese show what he can produce when he is fully fit
