THE TEAM NEWS
- Canberra Raiders secured a vital victory to solidify their recent run of form as they earned a fifth successive win by getting the better of Parramatta Eels last week.
- The Raiders have put their poor start to the season behind them and will believe they can continue their upward trajectory on home soil, although they have been forced into a change in the hooking department with Zac Woodford dropping out and Danny Levi coming into the 17 after recovering from injury.
Starting 13: Kris, Hopoate, Croker, Timoko, Rapana, Wighton, Fogarty, Papali’i, Starling, Tapine, Young, Whitehead, Horsburgh – Interchanges: Levi, Guler, Saulo, Maritoa – Reserves: Schiller, Puru, Schneider, Harawira-Naera, Cotric
Unavailable: Adrian Trevilyan (Injured), Matt Frawley (Injured), Zac Woodford (Injured)
MANLY SEA EAGLES
- Manly Sea Eagles suffered a third consecutive loss as they were edged by Cronulla Sharks last week and the pressure is on Anthony Seibold’s side ahead of this contest.
- They have struggled of late with some key men sidelined but they are handed a massive boost here with Josh Schuster coming back into the halves while Jake Trbojevic will make a sooner-than-expected return from a calf problem.
Starting 13: T. Trbojevic, Saab, Parker, Koula, Garrick, Schuster, Cherry-Evans, Paseka, Croker, Keppie, Olakau’atu, B. Trbojevic, J. Trbojevic – Interchanges: Lawton, Fainu, Bullemor, Condon – Reserves: Weekes, Harper, Johns, Boyle, Chan Kum Tong
Unavailable: Toafofoa Sipley (Suspended), Aaron Woods (Injured), Kelma Tuilagi (Injured), Josh Aloiai (Injured)
These two teams are trending in opposite directions and it could be evident when they go head-to-head. Canberra Raiders have won their last five while Manly Sea Eagles come into this with three successive losses to their name. Both have top eight aspirations this season but the pressure is starting to build on Manly, even at this early stage of the campaign and with Canberra being tough to beat on home soil, all signs point to a Raiders win in this one.
