Canberra Raiders vs St George Illawarra Dragons Preview
Losers of two straight, the Raiders will be hoping the early season version of the Dragons shows up this week, as oppose to the one that put a scare into the Roosters.
Canberra clawed their way back into the game last week against the Eels, only to lose in extra time on a Clinton Gutherson field goal. How Ricky Stuart’s side responds to such a deflating loss will be on full display on Friday as they now look to remain in the eight.
The Dragons are also looking to bounce-back in the win column, but you could easily call last week’s effort against the Roosters an honourable loss.
There’s no shame in losing to the back-to-back premiers, especially when you head into the sheds with a 10-8 lead.
St George fans can also rest easy knowing their side remains relatively unchanged, yet the same can’t be said for the Raiders, who will go without Corey Horsburgh for the rest of the season.
The Raiders have won two of their last three against St George, but their recent struggles in the first half makes them a risky betting play this week.
The Dragons, meanwhile, have covered in two of their three games as the away underdog against Canberra, so with $2.00 on offer and a +11.5 line as insurance, take the Red V to cover.
