2017 Rd 11 Canberra Raiders Holden Cup preview

Canberra Raiders V Parramatta Eels
Saturday 20 May 5:15pm, Olympic Stadium

The Holden Cup Canberra Raiders had a tough afternoon on Sunday, defeated 32-6 by the Newcastle Knights at the Newcastle Sports Centre. The Knights led by 8-0, before a Raiders try to Jack Murchie - off the back of a Logan Spaander grubber - set up a 8-6 scoreline at the half time break. It looked like the Raiders had forced their way back into the match, but it was all one way traffic for the Knights in the second half.

The Raiders are enduring a mixed start to season 2017 - and with a 5-5 record, they in 11th place on the competition ladder. However, they are not far off the top eight, with Canberra one of three teams on the same competition points as the fourth placed Manly Sea Eagles.

The Raiders' opponents this week, the Parramatta Eels, are in fourth place, with just one more win to their name this season. The Eels were last start winners over the Roosters, 30-28. They only claimed the match in the final stages when captain Denzal Tonise barged over near the posts to level the scores - with Troy Dargan converting for the match-winner. The Raiders will need to watch for winger Greg Leleisiuao who scored two tries and ran for 265 metres on Sunday.

The Eels can put on plenty of points - they average more than six tries per match, compared to the Raiders 4.5. Parramatta's defensive record is only a shade better - with both teams conceding an average of around five tries per match - but the Raiders miss an average of 10 more tackles per match than the Eels.

There have been a number of changes in the Raiders' line up for the upcoming match. Jayden Carroll will start in the halves alongside Logan Spaander, while Lachlan Cooper has been named on the bench. In the forwards, junior Kiwis representative Fabien Paletua-Kiri will start the match at prop, with Zac Masters moving to lock. Raiders captain Jarred Tuite shifts from lock to hooker.

It will be tough for Canberra to take the competition points, but they have been known to produce an unexpected result.

Our tip: Given the form of the two teams, however, we have to predict an Eels win.

NYC Preview: Raiders v Eels

The Canberra Raiders U20s will be hunting a return to the winners’ circle when they cross swords with the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium on Saturday evening.

Brett White’s brigade will have to make amends for a 32-6 loss to the Knights if it is to notch a win on Saturday, but a win will be pivotal for the team's finals aspirations.

I thought the Jack Murchie sin binning was absolutely ridiculous! Probably cost the match.
