    Beaten them the last two times in Canberra, last year convincingly. One phenomenal win doesn't make a team great. Didn't we learn that from Parra?

    The boys to bounce back from a farked loss.

    You are living in a dream world son. You better hope the men in pink are feeling generous or the raiders are heading towards 40 points plus victory

    Ahh, Knights vs Raiders - my favourite match of the year. Thank Christ we get our visit to that shithole out of the way nice and early. Raiders played their good game for the season on Saturday as well as getting a helping hand from the pink geese. The Knights were stitched up by the men in pink today.

    Knights by 30.

    Well they do owe us an incorrect try ruling...

    At home against a team we should beat, coming off a great win away from home against the best side in the comp... this has all the hallmarks of a crippling effort from the boys in green

    Hopefully the pack shows up with the same intensity as they had against the storm. Should get Papalii and Shillington back too. If we play like we did against the storm, good times.

    If we dont, the knights will play solidly enough to beat us. I hope the raiders persist with the early ball to the centres, i like the match ups on both sides of the field for Blake Ferguson and Jack Wighton

    I wonder how many times someone will get mad about the refs in this thread already off to a few solid ref mentions which will of course reach a frenzy during match day.

    Should get this done without too much trouble.

    Really have to start lifting for these weaker teams. Complacency doesn't exist in good teams.

    Speaking of the refs the last time we played these clowns the refs were so bad that they got dropped for the performance. I hope Ferguson literally cracks open a knights players head and feasts on the goo inside.

    Really looking forward to the matchup of Gagai V Wighton.

    Hoping we beat the Faiders but can't say I'm confident.

    Seriously though while the raiders have been inconsistent they have also been good at home. These middle of the table clashes are games we really need to win backing up from a big win against the storm. Its really an issue that furner has occasionally struggled with. Not all his fault, the side is young and a bit stupid and he's tried some things

    Big test.

    What are the chances Mullen plays? Could be a real dent to the knights, he's actually played reasonably consistent football this year

    It will be an interesting one. Both very good young players. Wighton is a defensive specialist and Gagai makes his cash with ball in hand. I like Wighton to keep his quiet but he'll have to be on his game, Wighton is starting to find his feet with ball in hand so Gagai will have to be on his game defensively too.

    Tahu v Fergo could be a real bloodbath if Fergo is in the mood imho.
    Shandor and Lee v McManus and Lee are interesting battles too.

    Scans for Mullo tomorrow. At this early stage I'd say he's 50/50.

    Papalii was supposed to be near back for the storm game so he should be raring to go. At least I hope so. He adds some power into the back row

    Agree, I think Wighton's attack is looking the goods. I thought he had it all over Chambers last night and was dangerous.

    Fergo could very well and is the better centre of the 2, but I do think Tahu is a better centre than most give him credit for. His defence is normally excellent and he's very capable of causing damage when given some room to move.

    canberra easily

    newcastle couldn't even beat a gallen-less cronulla. That's like losing a running race to a guy with only one leg.

    The Knights are hugely overrated. Bennett must be wondering how the hell to sort this team out. Raiders will take a huge amount of confidence from slaying the Storm and come out swinging.

    Raiders by 14.

    Riaders usually turn to rubbish, when you expect big things. I hope they beat Newcastle but wouldn't surprise me in the least if they get rolled.
