Canberra Raiders joined Manly on points at the top of the Winfield Cup by beating Parramatta 50-12 on Saturday. The Raiders ran in 10 tries to two, but still trail Manly, who had no match, on points difference.
Widnes have joined the London Broncos and Australian club Parramatta in the chase to sign Jason Robinson, Wigan's 20-year-old Great Britain winger. The Chemics have made an inquiry for Robinson, who has agreed to join the Australian Rugby League in a pounds 500,000 three-year deal in 1997.
