Complaints against Canberra Raiders strip merchants fall on deaf ears

Canberra say the only NRL teams complaining about one-on-one strips are the ones who can’t take advantage of the new rules.

The NRL introduced rules last season which allow players to leave a tackle so their teammate can perform a one-on-one strip before the contest is complete.

The Raiders have mastered the art and have pinched the ball 23 times this season, the next best is Melbourne (11), who they face in a top-four battle on Saturday.

Canberra co-captain Josh Hodgson leads the competition with 11 and said he expects teams will be alert to his pickpocketing antics heading into finals.
