Preview

Mitchell Moses has been the talk of the town for, well, for much of the season and we wait until Saturday night to see whether he’ll turn out for his new club.

In more positive news for the Eels, Bevan French returns for his first game in what seems like forever in a boost for the side who will need to be on top of their game as the Raiders will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing loss to the Knights last week.

Three losses on the trot for the ‘Green Machine’ means Ricky Stewart needs to find something to dig his side out of their 4-6 rut. They do sit just one win out of the top eight, but we all know what this side is capable of.

Joey Leilua and Jordan Rapana need to recapture their earlier season form, while they will welcome the return of Josh Papalii, who has missed their last two games through a club-imposed suspension.

Corey Norman’s injury has no doubt hurt the Eels, and with the Raiders having scored at least 28 points in four of their last five meetings, we can see them bouncing back in emphatic fashion.

Raiders by 12.
