NRL 2017: Canberra Raiders snap losing streak with narrow victory over Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium

CANBERRA have snapped a three-game losing streak to edge out Parramatta 22-16 in a thriller at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.

Flyer Jordan Rapana crossed with just seven minutes remaining to get the Raiders back in front, but it was a frantic final few moments with the Eels refusing to give up.

Somehow, the green wall held strong.

The close loss for the Eels was compounded with in-form lock Nathan Brown suffering a rib injury midway through the first half, while centre Michael Jennings was forced from the field late in the game with an upper leg injury.

The Raiders had a host of possession early on off the back of penalties, and they took full advantage with young winger Nick Cotric spinning out of a tackle to dive over in the corner.
