Raiders officials said centre Jarrod Croker had suffered a strained medial ligament in a knee which was hopefully not serious. Croker is, however, in extreme doubt for next Saturday's encounter with Melbourne.

Canberra captain Terry Campese said a scrum feed decision that went the wrong way was costly after his men stemmed the early Cowboys stampede.

"We built our way back into the game in the second half and (then there was) that little kick where they knocked into touch and got the feed," said Campese.

"That's a massive call.

"It's frustrating being out there, you put in the effort to get back into the game and then a call like that goes against you."

Coach David Furner lamented: "We seem to defend better when we're fatigued.

"We've probably learned our lesson. We've given a couple of teams a good start and we've been able to pull them back in - not tonight."

Winger Graham's late try was his 100th in first grade.

Coach Neil Henry said the Cowboys seemed to be on the right track after a slow start to the season.

Thurston said: "The Penrith game was good and we backed it up against the Broncos so it's a step in the right direction.

"We just need to build on that. We need to ... make sure we execute our plays and that we've got our defensive focus.

"There are still areas we need to improve on."
