2017 Rd 13 Canberra Raiders Holden Cup preview

Canberra Raiders V Manly Sea Eagles
Sunday 4 June 9:45am Brookvale Oval

The Holden Cup Canberra Raiders produced a breath-taking, come from behind win against the Sydney Roosters last Sunday at Canberra Stadium - and it surely helped make up for the heart-breaking one point loss to the Eels in Round 11.

The Raiders trailed the Roosters by 24-4 with a quarter of an hour remaining. But the Raiders then piled on four rapid fire tries - to Sebastian Kris, Sam Finnegan, Harry Van Dartel and Andre Niko to snatch a two point lead with three minutes left. Captain Jarred Tuite, who had put in an inspirational performance, then capped it off with a try of his own - delivering an incredible 32-24 win to the home team. 28 points and five tries in the space of 15 minutes.

The win sees the Raiders climb to ninth place on the competition ladder - just behind this week's opponent, the Manly Sea Eagles in eighth. The Sea Eagles are on the same number of competition points as Canberra and have a slightly better points differential - but have won one less match than the Raiders.

The Sea Eagles suffered a 36-12 loss in their last start against the Gold Coast Titans in Round 11. The Titans led all the way, going to a 22-0 lead early in the second half. Manly managed to reduce the gap to 10 through a couple of tries, but the Titans powered away in the final 20 minutes.

The Raiders also inflicted a big defeat on the Sea Eagles when the teams met just a few weeks ago at Canberra Stadium. The Sea Eagles dominated the first half in that match - yet led by just two points, 8-6, at the break. Then in the second half, Canberra opened up the attack, piling on five tries to one for a 36-14 victory.

Despite suffering some big losses, the Sea Eagles have posted a couple of good wins in their past five matches - albeit against teams that are placed well down the ladder, the Broncos and Rabbitohs. They are on a WLWWL form line, while the Raiders have a WWLLW record.

The Sea Eagles are ahead of the Raiders in attack - they average 28 points and 5.4 tries per match, while the Raiders average 25 points and 4.6 tries per match. The Raiders have a slightly better defensive record, with Canberra conceding an average 27 points or 4.9 tries per match, the Roosters 28 points or 5.3 tries. Despite that, the Raiders average 43 missed tackles per match, the third worst in the league, the Sea Eagles 37.

The Raiders have named forwards Jack Murchie and Emre Guler to back up from representing New South Wales in the Under 20s Origin match. They are both having fair seasons. Murchie averages 112 metres from 11 runs, 23 tackles and two tackle breaks per match. Guler averages 101 metres from 10 runs, one offload and three tackle breaks. So they will certainly be welcomed back.

Matthew Scott drops back to the bench with Guler's inclusion, while Murchie will play alongside Jacob Field in the second row. Regular second rower Hudson Young has not been named after he was injured on Sunday.

Lachlan Cooper retains his spot in the starting halves, after being a late inclusion in place of Logan Spaander last weekend. Another late inclusion on Sunday, bench hooker Sam Finnegan, also retains his place in the top 17.

The Sea Eagles have no representatives in the Under 20s Origin - so all their players should be fresh after a bye. Billy Bainbridge earns a place in the starting second row in place of Haumole Olakau’atu, with prop John Tuivati returning to the starting team at prop. John Neil and Taniela Paseka have been brought into the top 17 on the bench.

Our tip: It will be tough ask for the Raiders to win at Brookvale, but they did do it last year, mauling the Sea Eagles 56-22 to secure a place in the 2016 finals. The Raiders have some injuries, notably Kalani Going, but will be stronger for the return of Murchie and Guler. We'll tip the Green Machine in a close match.
