Both teams coming off good wins, very tough one to call. Canberra by 4 at home.

From memory Newcastle have an atrocious record in Canberra. I'd go Raiders... but then again their performance after smashing Melbourne left a lot to be desired so who knows.

Gagai and Uate to tear up the Raiders left edge.

Knights by 16.

Danger game. On paper we should win easily, but we always seem to get complacent against the shit teams.

The Knights are shit, the Raiders are the real deal. Their all-conquering backline featuring Jarrod Croker will have a field day.

Yeah three wins and a draw (all Sunday afternoons FTR) in our 25 year existence.

Got a soft spot for both teams. Knights, simply because of the Bennett factor. He'll know how to prep his troops at training this week.

Knights because Raiders seem to go shit after a surprising win.

Although Knights winning 3 in a row at this stage might be fairly wishful thinking.

Raiders are morals for this and deserved favourites. The only way the Knights are going to stay in this match is if the referees help them. A couple of flukey wins against last year's grand finalists doesn't make a finals team.

We clearly showed how ineffective we were against the Raiders a few rounds ago and I can't see us getting over the top of their superior forward pack. They will completely dominate us because they're stronger, taller and faster in all departments.

Raiders by 50. It's in the bag for them. You heard it here first.

Gee knights fans must be worried, already trying to talk us up to put the pressure
Wayne Bennett coached sides has never beaten a Dave Furner coached side
Im not going to play the "knights are much better than us, they should beat us" reverse psychology shit

the raiders are a much better football side and should win comfortably if they show up with the correct attitude.

Not reverse psychology mate. Your all-conquering side should belt us.

Winning team still has a sniff, losing team is done for 2012. Big game.

I would prefer a Raiders win but they can't be relied on to put in 2 solid performances consecutively. Knights by 8.

I'm not too sure how the Raiders could be considered a "much better football side"by any stretch. This is a completely 50/50 game, should be a good'un!

I'm glad that the fans of these two teams hate each other. It makes it interesting for those of us who actually follow significant teams.
