When: 18:00 | Friday 25/08/2017
Where: GIO Stadium
Canberra will be deflated by last week’s loss to the Panthers but they still have a small window of chance of making the top eight and I mean small.
The Raiders are now dependant on so many games to make the top eight and I think they know they won’t be playing finals football.
They’re now playing for the fans and the jersey, so let’s see how much it means to them.
Lachlan Fitzgibbon is a player the Knights will want to secure for the future.
He takes big runs and can come off a step which can make the overlap and set up the second phase play or even a break.
Canberra will want to show the fans what should have been in this game.
I expect the Knights to come at them hard but the Raiders will hold them out.
Canberra at $1.15
Newcastle at $5.75
Tip: Canberra at $1.15
Line tip: Newcastle +15.5
