Canberra Raiders find themselves in another top four showdown in Round 10 of the NRL when they come up against the high-flying South Sydney Rabbitohs on Saturday night in the nation’s capital.

After they fell just short of a big comeback in losing 30-24 against the Sydney Roosters during Magic Round on the weekend, the Raiders now must confront the second-placed Rabbitohs, who continued to impress with a 32-16 dispatch of the Cowboys.

Round 10 starts at AAMI Park as Melbourne Storm look to back up their huge win from Magic Round against the Wests Tigers on Thursday night. Melbourne returned to their blistering best as they put 64 points on the Eels, while the Tigers will also be roaring after a clinical 30-4 victory over the Panthers.

Speaking of, Penrith are struggling significantly at the moment, with just one point in their points differential keeping them off the bottom of the ladder - can they claim a much-needed two points when they host the Warriors in the first game on Friday night? The Warriors are fresh off a great win over the Dragons last week.

Meanwhile, Brisbane Broncos will be looking to repeat their performance from Magic Round when they beat the Sea Eagles 26-10 and avoid another drubbing against competition leaders the Roosters, who defeated them by 30 points earlier this season.

Super Saturday begins at Cbus Super Stadium when the Gold Coast Titans entertain Canterbury Bulldogs. Both teams are desperate for a win as they languish near the bottom of the ladder and each are coming off last-start defeats during Magic Round.

North Queensland Cowboys and Parramatta Eels are also both heading into this game on the back of losses on the weekend, although Parramatta’s 60-point humiliation at the hands of Melbourne is much more worrying than the Cowboys’ 16-point loss to Souths.

Newcastle Knights will be targeting their fourth straight win when they take on the St. George Illawarra Dragons, while Cronulla are out for back-to-back victories as they face Manly Sea Eagles in the two Sunday games.
