Without lighting the NRL world on fire, the Sharks are there or there about in 2017 and are priming themselves for finals football. The Broncos loss was their gain last week and will look to keep the pressure on the top two with a win over a Raiders side clinging to their finals hopes.

The Raiders will enter the shire knowing the Sharks are an average 5-5 at home this season and come off a strong 14-point win last week over South Sydney. Jordan Rapana and Josh Papalii return to bolster the Green Machine while Jack Bird comes back into the centres for the Sharks.

The battle of the packs promises to be a must-watch match up in a game that can make or break Canberra’s season. A loss for the Sharks could also kill off any hope of a top two finals birth.

The Raiders are not to be written off however with the Sharks gearing up for a September assault, it’s hard to see them dropping this one.

Sharks by 6.
