    The Raiders have so far kept three teams to 0 this season:

    Round 1 vs Titans - 21-0
    Round 5 vs Eels - 19 - 0
    Round 13 vs Tigers - 28 - 0

    Would be interesting to know what the record is for number of times a team has kept their opposition scoreless in a season.

    Roosters in 2013 were a supremely good defensive team, Dragons in 2010, Manly in 1996... Probably some Storm teams.

    3 juggernauts as well.

    All middle of the pack for points scored, hardly near the bottom. Eels top 6.

    So yeah not powerhouses but not one of them in the bottom 6 for points scored either.

    Don’t see other clubs shutting all three of them out.

    One for David Middleton. I can tell you that the Raiders have now equalled the St George side of 1963 who conceded nil three times in 18 rounds. On a further 6 occasions the Dragons did not concede a try. They conceded 115 points (15 tries) in 21 games including finals.

    Chooks have the record at 6 in 2013, they were unreal that year.

    We had 5 in 2013 regular season and one more on the finals.

    Worth noting that it isn't necessarily an indicator of the best defence as we had a better against in 2015 and I think we maybe kept one team scoreless.

    Not a Chooks fan but I remember them being absolutely smothering in that period. Tough defensive unit. Wow, 6 is massive. I'd love it if the Green Wall can get near it.

    @madunit and the RLP team can probably figure this out pretty quickly.
    Their database is the best RL database on the internet by some considerable distance

    I’m pretty sure my team has played in plenty of consecutive games with a zero in the score line.

    Whilst not winning, they can all score points, it is a great effort.

    And yet the Broncs are 0-2 against them.
    Juggernauts indeed.

    2013 Roosters:

    Rnd 3: Roosters 8 Broncos 0
    Rnd 4: Roosters 50 Eels 0
    Rnd 6: Roosters 38 Bulldogs 0
    Rnd 17: Roosters 36 Dragons 0
    Rnd 19: Roosters 40 Sharks 0
    Finals Wk1: Roosters 4 Manly 0

    That's the record dating all the way back to 1908. Some effort.

    The Raiders defence shows that they're a Premiership threat imo IF they have luck with injuries (a prerequisite to win the comp).

    Eels obviously didn’t win the comp that year

    That Chooks 2013 side was a class above. How good was Sam Moa that year?

    Indeed.

    I made a thread on Twitter about it the other day

    Any team with John Bateman in it is a very good chance of breaking any NRL record in any season.

    Some surprising ones in there

    Cowboys in 2016 held teams to nil 4 times!
    The Steelers in 93, good effort
    Sharks in 94 - they didn't even make the finals that year either

    Can't remember the last time the Warriors kept a team scoreless once.

    f**k three times.

    I was on the Gold Coast in December 2012 and got into a discussion with a few guys about how the Roosters had made great signings and a new approach with Robinson was going to change things. They all laughed at me.
