Canberra's impressive win over the Bulldogs has been tempered by a leg injury to veteran five-eighth Jason Croker.
The Raiders turned in one of their best showings of the season to upset the Bulldogs 21-16 on their home turf at Sydney Showground. However Croker looks set to miss their finals campaign with a suspected fractured leg.
Canberra has now moved to second spot on 36 points, equal with competition leaders Sydney Roosters and Penrith. The Panthers play Manly at Brookvale Oval tonight, while the Roosters host the New Zealand Warriors tomorrow in a grand final replay.
