Canberra Raiders and Newcastle Knights will each be looking to bounce back from disappointing last-start efforts when they clash in NRL Round 10 action on Sunday.
Both the Knights and Raiders need significant improvement from their respective last games before the Rep Round.
Canberra had multiple chances to put away an injury-hit Bulldogs outfit, but they failed to score a single point in the second half as the Dogs came away 16-10 winners, which has to be a concern for Ricky Stuart.
Newcastle meanwhile competed well (as they have for most of the season) for the majority of their duel with Gold Coast, but unfortunately they faded away badly in the closing stages, with the Titans ultimately winning by 30 points.
It means both sides come into this showdown with a must-win mentality.
The Raiders were dealt a tough draw to open the season – part of the reason they languish in 10th position on the ladder – but they also have been incredibly inconsistent, and their attack hasn’t been as free-flowing as last season.
Newcastle continue to put in the effort, but there’s no hiding from the fact they simply don’t have a good enough team to compete for the finals. That’s got to take a toll on the brave Knights eventually.
Surely the Raiders can’t put in repeat dire performance, and coming up against a vulnerable Knights outfit, I’m tipping the Green Machine to find their attacking form and put on a big score.
Trent Hodkinson remains in the reserves but could be a late inclusion for Newcastle after being named on an extended bench, while Sia Soliola starts for Josh Papalii in the second row for Canberra as Dunamis Lui joins the bench.
