Parramatta Eels vs Canberra Raiders Preview
Plenty is up for grabs on Thursday night as the Eels and the Raiders both look to advance up the ladder.
The Eels will have their sights set on leapfrogging the third placed Bunnies after bouncing back from the bye last week with a punishing 26-8 win over the Titans.
Canberra, meanwhile, has rediscovered some form with back-to-back wins over Manly and Cronulla, results that have left the Green Machine just win one away from rejoining the eight.
Both teams head to CBUS in strong form, but like the market suggests, the Eels should be adding to their record if they can dominate possession like they did last week against the Titans.
After a season that has already been marred by injury, the Raiders now hold concern for Jack Wighton after the star five-eighth suffered a rib injury last week.
Casualties cost Canberra dearly when these sides met back in April, and it’s fair to say Wighton’s absence would make this very tough against one of the top scoring sides in the competition.
