    Souths look absolutely toast to me. If Manly were at full strength they win that game by 20+.

    I think the Raiders absolutely bash the crap out of Souths, who won't get a gluttony of piggy backs which is their lifeblood. That much is painfully obvious.

    The Raiders could win to nil but I'll go with 30-4.

    If the Bunnies leak as many points as they did against an under strength Manly... Raiders 20+

    Raider @ home with the full house sign up should win comfortably...

    Raiders best chance to make a grand final since the mid 90s. Could be a long time before they get another chance like this....Of course I am not at all confident. Cody Walker is the kind of player this team traditionally struggles against however Wighton has been doing a good job nullifying these kinds of players this year, hopefully that continues. Hodgson needs to keep giving Sezer good ball like he did against Melbourne, Aiden's decision making and kicking game was spot on in that game. I highly doubt we win by a big margin though.

    I don't think the Raiders will be as undisciplined as Manly were and especially @ home, so the penalty count shouldn't be loop sided...

    Raiders play close to how they did against the storm, they win comfortably

    If the Rabbitohs come and out and defend like they did against Manly, Canberra will give them the absolute business
    They wont be running through the Raiders with that ease for 80 minutes

    I expect a much better performance and i think it'll be a tightly played game, Raiders by 8. With a late try sealing it.

    Yeah Souths really need to improve if they want to be a chance ... I'm not sure if they have it in them.

    Raiders should be 1.05

    Souths are done, this is what Bennett does now - he coaches teams playing dire football with one or two stars being the difference hiding a soft forward pack then they get belted when it matters.

    We did lose to them this year but we were missing a few players including John Bateman.

    I seem to remember the young forwards were getting under Sams skin when we played. So bateman should see what he can do.

    Still im never confident. We dont have much big game experience so a choke could be on the cards

    The refereeing decisions and subsequent Skeepe meltdowns will be entertainment enough.

    Good luck to Canberra fans if Souths get the favourable decisions like they did last night.

    So long as its not ludicrous you gotta be able to handle it when the refs favour the other side. I mean id be salty for the rest of my life over it but in the abstract i mean

    So which Raiders player gets to enjoy running over the top of Gagai this weekend? Leilua? He should be very excited.

    Potentially 7 poms in this match. Got to be a record.
