Really looking forward to travelling down with the army to cheer our boys on and to hopefully win our first match down there since 2000. I think we will.

Saints 1-12.

This is a real big game for the Dragons and a real test, we really need to win down there as we haven't played well against the Raiders for ages. Go you Dragons!

Well I've already given him a serve after he stated straight out that we won't win (I'm scratching my head trying to think what he could be basing that prediction on, certainly it isn't the relative form of the two teams). If I were skeepe, I'd be watching replays of the donkeys game, as it will be much more enjoyable then what he'll be viewing on Saturday night.

Form won't mean too much in this game. We're at home. Tom Learoyd Larhs will be back. We have been a bogey team for the dragons for years.
I wouldn't be so confident...

Form has never meant anything is this match, at least not this century. Even in the years the Dragons made the preliminary final and the Raiders struggled, they still left Canberra with their tail between their legs.

Well good luck to you Raiders fans, but the Dragons put in a well below par performance against the Panthers and will be out to make amends. We never beat Melbourne unless they have half their team out either - only we just did last week. When will it sink in that the past means nothing for this year's Dragons team?

To be honest, I have nothing against Canberra apart from their involvement in the whole Superjoke schemozzle, and they have a good young team that will challenge in future years (providing you can hold on to your young players this time). But if the Dragons turn up to play on Saturday, the Green Machine doesn't stand a chance.

Past years are irrelevant. Even if the Dragons did make the preliminary final a few times, they still traditionally started the season terribly. In 2005, the Dragons came 2nd in the minor and the Raiders came 14th, but the Raiders won the Round 4 match easily by 20 points. But the Dragons were 0W,4L at the time, which pretty much makes that argument irrelevant.

This is totally different, as the Dragons come into this game in great form and having won 7 straight matches, while the Raiders are planning Mad Monday. I'd still be confident of Dragons 13+ even if its close for about 60 minutes.

I usually don't mind Canberra. Have kind of a soft spot for some of their players... Campo, TLL, Harrison, Dugan. I was supporting the Raiders on Saturday night, really getting behind them - but they were so brainless, so frustrating, that by fulltime I had turned on them. I'd like to see them punished

I didn't mind the Raiders last year, but this year I've really enjoyed seeing them get smashed week after week for some reason. It might have something to do with the commentators constantly talking up how brilliant Campese was, even if he did nothing in a game at the start of the season. I would like to see them smashed again this weekend, but this is a danger game for us, they're never easy beats at home and you never know which side will show up for them. I can see this game going one of two ways, we lose to them narrowly or we beat them by 20-30... I hope it's the latter.

Poore, Scott and Prior all looking at missing this one through suspension. That'll help.
