2017 Rd 12 Canberra Raiders Holden Cup preview

Image

Canberra Raiders V Sydney Roosters
Sunday 28 May 1:45pm, Canberra Stadium

The Holden Cup Canberra Raiders suffered a heart breaking 23-22 loss to the Parramatta Eels on Saturday night. The Raiders led for almost the entire match, but a field goal to Eels half Troy Dargan in the 78th minute finally proved the difference.

It was a much improved performance from Canberra, after the big loss to the Newcastle Knights in the previous round. Tries to Jack Murchie, Sebastian Kris and Logan Spaander in the first half gave the Raiders a 16-8 advantage at the break. And in the 54th minute a try to Harry Van Dartel - following a kick ahead from Jayden Carroll and a fumble from the Eels' fullback - saw the Green Machine take a 22-12 lead.

But the Eels struck back with a try of their own - and in the 62nd minute Jack Murchie was harshly sin binned, giving Parramatta the opportunity to set themselves up for the win. It looked like Murchie would score a length of the field try, after he intercepted a Parramatta pass on the Raiders' own goal line. But Murchie was judged off side - and was unusually judged to have committed a professional foul to boot.

The loss leaves the Raiders in 11th place on the competition ladder. However, they are not far off the top eight. There are five teams equal on 10 competition points, one being the eighth placed Sydney Roosters. And they're the Raiders' opponents this week.

The Roosters recorded a big 44-14 win over the Bulldogs last weekend, bouncing back from their own heart-breaking, two point, loss to the Eels in Round 10.

The Roosters are ahead of the Raiders in attack - they average 30 points and over five tries per match, while the Raiders average 25 points and over four tries per match. The Tricolours also have a slightly better defensive record, with Canberra conceding an average five tries per match, the Roosters 4.8. The Roosters are on a LLWLW form line, while the Raiders have a WWWLL record in the past five matches.

Both teams have lost players to the Under 20s State of Origin squads. Raiders forwards Jack Murchie and Emre Guler have been picked for New South Wales. It follows their recent selection for the Junior Kangaroos' Test against the Kiwis. Both have been in fine form and will be missed from the Canberra forward pack. Guler made 148 metres from 13 runs, three tackle breaks and 24 tackles last Saturday night, while Murchie made 98 metres from 9 runs, 26 tackles and scored a try.

The Roosters are without backrower Nat Butcher and utility Victor Radley, both selected for the Blues - as well as winger Bernard Lewis, selected for Queensland. The Roosters have named Butcher and Radley in their first grade squad on their reserves list. Lewis has been injured, and was named by the Roosters on the extended NYC bench in a hope he'd be fit for this match. Presumably all that will be trumped by the representative fixture. Last week Butcher made 218 metres from 13 runs, three line breaks, nine tackle breaks and scored a try. Radley made 180 metres from 16 runs, four tackle breaks and 18 tackles. So that also leaves a fair hole for the Roosters too.

In changes for the Raiders, Matthew Scott starts at prop in place of Guler, while Jacob Field comes in for Murchie. For the Roosters, Kiah Cooper replaces Adam Pompey at fullback and Lyndon Hills takes Cooper's place in the centres. Jarrett Boland and Josh Curran come into the second row.

Our tip: The last time these NYC teams met, the Roosters won 48-0 in the first week of the 2016 finals. But this is 2017. The Roosters look slightly stronger statistically and on recent form, but it's a difficult one to pick, given the disruptions caused by Origin. We'll stick with the home team in a close one.

NYC Preview: Raiders v Roosters

The Canberra Raiders will be out to snap a two-game losing streak with a new-look side when they host the Sydney Roosters at GIO Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Brett White’s men will be without front-rower Emre Guler and second-rower Jack Murchie as they look to bounce back from a heartbreaking 23-22 loss to the Eels on Saturday evening.

We are underway in the Holden Cup, Roosters have the first set. I can tell you the wind is icy, it's like the wind we have in Canberra when it's snowing in the mountains. Sleet reportedly seen at Canberra Stadium earlier.

15th min It's still 0-0 at Canberra Stadium, the Roosters have had the best of territory and possession... and have been held up once. But neither side has really looked like scoring. Quite a few forward passes called up.

29th min Raiders really committing too many errors, forward passes and fumbles in the ruck. Perhaps the passing is impacted by the strong wind.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

MATCH REPORT: NYC Canberra Raiders storm home to defeat Roosters

The Canberra Raiders NYC team have produced a stunning second half comeback to defeat the Sydney Roosters 32 points to 24 in Canberra this afternoon.

The Raiders came into the match having suffered a close one point loss to Parramatta last week as forward Emre Guler and Second Row Jack Murchie were absent due to Origin call ups.

The Roosters were coming off a strong thirty-point win over Canterbury last week, as both teams had five wins each coming into the match, with Sydney sitting in 8th on the ladder and the Raiders in 11th.

Canberra Raiders 32 (Kiri, Kris, Finnegan, Van Dartel, Niko, Tuite, Niko 4/6) defeat Sydney Roosters 24 (Koro, Chalker, Lam, Anderson, O’Sullivan 4/4)

Well done.

Just proves that Tuite should be playing on Wednesday night for QLD U20. Hopefully his good form continues and is rewarded with a second tier contract.
