Canberra in Canberra, always eventful. Weather forecast is for a maximum of 13 , so by kickoff its going to be mighty chilly! They will have Josh Dugan back , out to impress for origin and also Blake Ferguson. A convincing win is needed and it should be, but, we are the unpredictable, so expect some drama!
I think the boys have enough to play for, to pull out a win.
- Canberra embarrassed us earlier in the season
- Woods and Galloway could push for a blues Jersey
- Back row playing for starting positions
- Backs under pressure to keep there position
- Wins during origin are always valuable
In '05 we played this game in a similar position and were play terribly in the first half, think we were down 14 or 16 to nil at half time, and scored 3 tries in the 2nd half to keep our streak going.
We have a very reasonable record against the Raiders, even at Bruce Stadium, but we do get complacent at times and I feel like Saturday could be one of those games (similar to the Titans performance)
We should regain our dominance over them after that blip on the radar last start….but as they say no game is easy and as long as theres no complacency ((Manly @ Penrith???))- we turn up to play and have the right attitude the result should take care of itself for us.
I reiterate Canberra is an obstacle in the pursuit of our goal. I know we can play football but do you think we’ve got it right upstairs yet. This is what I’m waiting for. If we do have it right then Canberra is there for the taking.

Our team seems to be getting better with each win. We showed a lot more attacking flair in the game last weekend but just couldn’t get across the line most of the time. If we have the right attitude, I think we should win convincingly. And we should have the right attitude after losing to them earlier this year!
C’mon Wests, let’s make it 6 in a row!!
I would be surprised if they don’t test our edge defence again even though the Cowboys did last week without much success. As long as the WT tackler that comes in to shut the movement down doesn’t miss we’ll be okay but if not they’ll get around us again.
I think without Campese the Raiders are nowhere near as good in attack but our boys really need to make sure of this one.
