The Raiders will roll out in front of their home fans this weekend in a bid to establish themselves in the top eight following a slow start to 2017. With only Josh Papalii out due to Origin commitments, the Raiders will be close to full strength as they take on a depleted Roosters side.

Luke Bateman comes onto the interchange for Ricky Stuart’s men who returned to a bit of form last week, with backs Nick Cotric, Jordan Rapana and Joey Leilua all impressing.

Sydney scraped over the line last week against the Bulldogs in what could prove to be a much-needed win over a testing upcoming Origin period. Pearce, Napa, Cordner, Ferguson and Guerra are all out for the tri-colours, with Luke Keary heading the charge for them this week.

Keary has been very consistent across 2017 for his new club as they still possess an array of talent in their backline with Michael Gordon, Daniel Tupou (unlucky to miss Origin selection) and Latrell Mitchell sure to cause Canberra a few headaches in attack.

Canberra’s stronger and more experienced front line should provide enough muscle to give the Raiders good enough field territory and enough points as a result to get the win.

Raiders by 10.
