1 to 13 is ok and could cause us trouble. I don't go much on their bench though. We definitely have an edge there.

Yeah they are big alright,
David Shillington 194 cm 114 kg
Dane Tilse 200 cm 113 kg
Tom Learoyd-Lahrs 194 cm 110.. Think he's out.
Our biggest are Galloway (195/ 112kg) and Woods (194/ 110kg).
There side isn't too bad on paper... For a team at the bottom of the ladder.. ..must be their coach. Milford at the back, spines ok. Centres on par with ours. Descend forwards pack.

From 6 to 12 that side is absolute tripe. Their bench is good and their outside backs are good, but their halves and their forwards aside from Fensom are a joke so their outside backs never get any quality ball. They don't get beaten they just beat themselves every week.

Although the raiders are playing like poo.. They are still a side that can score points, unlike the Sharks. Not so much this year..but in the past, once they get on a roll and both forwards and backs could turn it on. A little like the Tigers of old. Haven't seen it so much under Ricky.

They've got some size and if we don't respect them we could be in for a shock. Just hope we do come out firing after a disappointing last start. Potter wants us to score more points, well there may just be a chance here if we're good enough.

That's the thing with the Raiders they do get some second phase but every time it seems to miss the mark or go down

If their second phase finds targets who hang onto the ball they will be a dangerous side especially with their size

Canberra have always been seen as a 'big' pack, but they're the fluffiest bunch of princesses in the league. I'd much rather have a 190cm/112kg Taupau who rips in than a 198cm/114kg Learoyd-Lahrs who can't break a wet paper bag.
