Sharks coach Shane Flanagan played down Fifita's calf injury after the game, saying he was confident the Blues prop would recover in time to play against the Cowboys on Saturday at Allianz Stadium.

"It was just precautionary, he's had a calf strain for six or seven weeks," he said.

Flanagan said he was impressed with how his side performed despite there not being too much to play for.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game to get through, the result didn't change too much, but they showed how professional they were," he said.

Raiders captain Terry Campese said he was more disappointed for interim coach Andrew Dunemann, who is keen to be appointed coach of the Raiders for next year following the sacking of David Furner three weeks ago.

"The guys love him and want him to be obviously the coach appointed for next year, but our last performances haven't helped his cause I guess," he said.

"It's been a long year, the last couple of months have felt like a lifetime and we can finally put that aside now."
