Canberra Raiders vs Parramatta Eels at GIO Stadium, Sunday 2pm.
Canberra try to consolidate top 4 effort
We travel down to the nations capital on Sunday afternoon as the Canberra Raiders look to consolidate their top 4 status against a tricky Parramatta side. On paper the Raiders should steam roll Parramatta and record yet another victory, however nothing is ever as it seems in the NRL and this is definitely a danger game for a Canberra side that has been on fire in recent weeks. After a rather solid campaign in 2016, Canberra has made the entire competition take notice over the last fortnight with impressive wins over the top 2 teams in Melbourne and Cronulla. Their expansive style of football and exciting young backline is garnering them plenty of fans as they push for a top 4 birth. Ricky Stuart has done a tremendous job and recruited very well. In particular Josh Hodgson and Eliot Whitehead both signed from the English Super League have been hugely impressive. With that said, this clash against Parramatta is a game the Canberra of old would have lost, can try Buck that old trend? If Canberra want to win the premiership they need consistency and for them that continues this week.
