    The Sharks have announced their 20 man squad, Kelly and Graham will be the halves.

    Interested to see the raiders halves, I don't think an upset is completely out of the question here.

    The Sharkies always perform well down here and with Orford still in doubt this could be a tough one. I also rate Wade Graham (I think the Panthers kept the wrong bloke), he could be just what the Sharks need.

    Raiders have a great team this year and are not a one man team but play way better with Campo in the side.. Look to last year when he came off injured.. It was see ya later. I think the first 10 weeks will be tough for them but they will learn to win without him and when he returns they will probably go on to win the comp.

    Raiders 26-20 Sharks. That's my prediction. I am predicting that the Raiders defence will be poor in the 2nd half and the Sharks will come close to winning.

    If the Raiders hold on to the ball they'll do it easy. If not, the Sharks will get a sniff and frustrate Canberra out of the game.

    My tip - Raiders 22 Sharks 14

    Raiders round one team:

    1. Josh Dugan
    2. Blake Ferguson
    3. Jarrod Croker
    4. Joel Thompson
    5. Daniel Vidot
    6. Josh McCrone
    7. Matt Orford
    8. Tom Learoyd-Lahrs
    9. Alan Tongue
    10. David Shillington
    11. Joe Picker
    12. Bronson Harrison
    13. Shaun Fensom

    14. Brett White
    15. Dane Tilse
    16. Trevor Thurling
    17. Glen Buttriss
    18, Josh Miller
    19. Danny Galea


    Pretty decent Raiders side, other than Tongue at hooker and Buttriss on the bench rather than vice-versa.

    Am confident we'll take the Sharks with that side.

    Croker is our goalkicker. He took over from Campo last year. Remember that awesome one he hit against Tigers?

    Me neither.
