Canberra Raiders vs New Zealand Warriors Preview
The Raiders have plenty at stake over the coming two weeks if they wish to secure the double-chance in the finals.
Still sitting two points behind the Eels, the Green Machine must ensure they win this week at home – which is easier said than done against a Warriors side well known for causing upsets this season.
New Zealand’s 2020 campaign is now over after losing to the Sharks last week, but they’ve shown time and time again that they are capable of hanging tight with just about anyone.
Canberra, meanwhile, got back to basics last week with a huge win over the Dragons in Wollongong.
The result should inspire some confidence back into the side following a flat performance against the Roosters the week before, but with a 5-4 record at home this year, it’s fair to say the Raiders aren’t always the safest bet in the nation’s capital.
New Zealand lost 20-6 when they met the Warriors back in Round 2, but a lot has changed since then.
The Kiwis are also 4-1 in their last five games as the away underdog against Canberra, so there’s a bit to like about the Warriors keeping this respectable.
