    Monday night in Canberra, us coming off a game where we played like dog sh*t, against a side going well, and us probably expected to lose... this game is RIPE for a Raiders 40+ point win... Im not sure yet, but ive got a feeling we'll come up big for this one

    which usually means we'll lose :lol:

    Yep, bet each way

    I'm going to travel to that scummy hole for the game. I'm even leaving early for the game so I can stop off at the Lawn Cemetery at Queanbeyan to piss on Les McIntrye's grave. :cool:

    Even 6 feet deep, old and dead, Les would still kick 10 shades of sh*t out of you. FTR, thats fairly low, even for you. With a shread of luck you'll put your car into a ditch and slowly wither and die, would be nice if some friends or family managed to make it out to you intime to watch your final breath though :cool:

    I too will be going to the game.

    I really don't feel confident about our chances tbph, but would happily be proven wrong. Our record in Canberra is borderline diabolical ...

    lol wow... easy bait by spike there.

    if we play like we have the last couple of weeks canberra don't have what it takes to stop us.

    however, i've never seen a knights team play like our last 2 matches down in that chilly little borefest that is canberra.

    head says raiders by plenty, heart says knights by plenty. both teams are wildly unpredictable at the best of times... but this will be a good test to see if the knights were fair dinkum the last 2 weeks or not.

    Does it count as bait if I actually do it? My contempt for the Raiders doesn't fall short to simply baiting their fans.

    Unless there are pics, newspaper article covering the vandalism or a copy of an arrest report posted after the game then it is just internet forum baiting mate ;-)

    For some reason we usually play like dog sh*t in Canberra (hard to get enthusiastic in Australias bung hole perhaps) so its gonna take a committed performance from the boys to get the prize in this one.

    Dont know what to expect in this one. Raiders looked like they were thinking about end of season holidays against the warriors so the Knights could really belt us.

    If we turn up like we did against the dragons we will run over the top of their powderpuff forwards.

    Absolute garbage mate, if canberra are on song, which is a good chance on a chilly monday night home game, the knights will have to play to the very best of their ability to even make a game of it, let alone win.

    Could go either way this game, depends on which sides turn up for both teams... anything from a 40 point drubbing each way to a GP Draw could be on the cards here

    Bah. Monday, Canberra. It's probably the game you least want to play or see your team play in their season.

    If we continue on with our second half and Raiders feel they don't have anything to play for any more this year we should collect the points.

    Is it the Raiders last home game? If so could be a great game if both teams turn up, although a Raiders win would be likely.

    Yep, we have the Broncos in Brisbane for round 26, so this is our last home game

    I'm going to this game. Sort of looking forward to it but such a difficult away trip for the boys down in Canberra on a Monday night. Likely that the Raiders will come away with the win. LOL at the guy who thinks Newcastle have "powderpuff forwards". Are these the same forwards who have dominated packs of the Dragons, Bulldogs, Storm and Sea Eagles in games this year? :lol:
