Raiders v Manly

Manly's Dylan Walker redeemed himself by booting a game-winning penalty goal at the end of an iffy night with the boot in Canberra.

Walker missed a conversion and a penalty shot from makeable spots at crucial periods during regulation as the Sea Eagles and Raiders finished 80 minutes locked at 18-18, before landing his third opportunity when it mattered most.

The Sea Eagles were lucky to make it through Canberra's raid to start the extra period and Walker was given a golden opportunity to redeem himself when Joseph Tapine was penalised for a strip 39 metres away and slightly to the left of the centre of the field.

The centre's attempt looked to be sailing wide right once again, but hooked late and scraped the inside of the right post before falling over.

Having copped a gobful from the Raiders after spraying his attempt to convert Tom Trbojevic's 76th-minute try, Walker made sure to return the abuse to his hosts after landing the winning blow.

It brought to an end a frenetic final few minutes, which saw both teams score apparent match-winning tries.

First, Jordan Rapana somehow managed to track down, reel in and put down a 73rd-minute Blake Austin kick into the corner that looked for all money like it had too much mustard on it.

Minutes later, an excellent short ball by Daly Cherry-Evans put Frank Winterstein through the Raiders' line, ending in Trbojevic's four-pointer.

Walker's missed conversion set up the extra period, where he stepped up to the plate.
