Preliminary finalists last year, the Raiders so far haven’t been able to build on their 2016 season, suffering multiple tight losses and struggling to put together consistent performances.
Currently sitting outside a finals spot, time is running out for Canberra to get it right and mount a serious challenge for this year’s premiership.
There’s no doubt Canberra have the firepower and roster to seriously challenge for the premiership, but for whatever reason they haven’t been able to repeat their showing from last year. The Raiders have been unlucky at stages however, losing six games by six points or less and also having to deal with a very tough draw to begin the season.
But a game against the Broncos during the Origin period at home on a cold Saturday night is a great chance for the Raiders to step up and produce a big performance.
Brisbane traditionally struggle during the Origin period, but they’ve so far managed to keep their heads above water, with a tough six-point win over the Rabbitohs and the bye last week securing their spot int he top four heading into this weekend.
That last-start win against the Rabbitohs came at a cost though, with Anthony Milford suffering a shoulder injury that has ruled him out for six weeks. Benji Marshall will replace him in the halves for this clash.
Brisbane have a great record against Canberra, winning their last four meetings – including two in Canberra. However I have a feeling the Raiders are going to step it up on Saturday night. It’s not a great period for the Broncos, coming into a cold GIO Stadium in the middle of the Origin period with three players backing up. Raiders in a close one.
