It was testament to the type of leader Canberra Raiders captain Jarrod Croker is, but Sia Soliola refused to allow his skipper to shoulder the blame for the heart-breaking, golden-point loss.

A Dylan Walker penalty, which snuck in off the upright, proved the difference as it took until extra-time for Manly to beat the Raiders 20-18 at Canberra Stadium on Friday night.

Utter madness in Canberra golden point finish

Manly were forced to reply to a Jordan Rapana special to force golden point while Dylan Walker missed two from in front before being given chance at redemption.

Croker put his hand up after missing a conversion from the touchline after winger Jordan Rapana scored an amazing try in the corner and slipped when they had an overlap and were shooting for a golden try.

Soliola said it said a lot about Croker that he would even consider taking the blame.

"There's a few boys that are taking it personally. In my opinion, they played their hearts out, all the boys did. There's nothing we can do," Soliola said.

"You can't expect Jarrod to do everything and you can't expect people not to make mistakes.

"We don't go out there to purposely drop a ball or give penalties away, it's just one of those things where things happen. 

"We did that today, it was just one of those things where Junior could have scored, Jarrod could have scored, Jarrod could have finished it off.
