After coming to within one game of the grand final last season, the Raiders have started the 2017 season with a 1-3 record, but they have been dealt a harsh draw and have suffered some heartbreaking losses.
Canberra began the season with a golden point loss to the Cowboys in Townsville, while determined reigning premiers the Cronulla Sharks stunned them in the second round. The Raiders showed what they can do when confronted with a lesser team, demolishing the Tigers by 40 points, but they were again edged last week, with a Jordan Kahu field goal handing the Broncos a 13-12 victory at Suncorp.
Those results indicate Canberra isn’t too far away at all – pushing both Queensland juggernauts to the brink – and when they’ve had the chance to come up against anything other than a competition heavyweight, they’ve been clinical.
Ball control has been an issue over the first month – they’ve made the joint-most errors along with the Tigers – but if Canberra can maintain some semblance of control, they are going to be hard to stop at home.
Parramatta started the season in encouraging fashion, downing both the Sea Eagles and Dragons impressively, but they’ve lost steam over the last fortnight, and haven’t won since Round 2.
The Eels were upset by Gold Coast in Round 3 – minus Corey Norman – and while the halfback returned last week, Brad Arthur’s side didn’t have the answers to stop a solid Sharks outfit.
It leaves Parramatta staring down the barrel of three straight losses – not what fans were expecting after such a bright start to the season.
A big forward battle is looming, but I think if the Raiders can hold onto the ball, they will emerge triumphant here. Canberra have been unlucky with their draw, but a return to GIO Stadium in front of a boisterous home crowd should spur them on to victory.
