Warriors vs Raiders Preview & Prediction

The Warriors and Raiders were humiliated by premiership heavyweights last week – who conjures up an immediate bounce back in Redcliffe to kick off Super Saturday?

Canberra put up a decent fight early on against the Panthers, but they were kept in their own territory for the entire second half and ultimately went down 36-6.

Ricky Stuart’s side have now lost four consecutive matches, with three of those coming by 13+ margins. The loss to Jamal Fogarty and Josh Hodgson – two members of their spine – has clearly hurt the Raiders and you can’t see them making the finals on current form.

Meanwhile, the Warriors were travelling okay before Anzac Day’s beatdown at the hands of the Storm.

The Warriors were 3-3 for the season, with their three defeats coming by 1-12 margins, so they had been in every game.

Even against Melbourne, the Warriors were right in the game heading into half-time, but the floodgates opened in the second half, with the Kiwi club losing 70-10 – the most points conceded in a NRL match since 2008.

Nathan Brown gave his players an almighty spray after the game, accusing some of ‘giving up’, while they also have injuries to Dallin Wallin-Zelezniak and Josh Curran to contend with, along with Aaron Pene being suspended.

VERDICT:

It’s a tough one to predict. Both sides were thrashed last week and will be keen for a response. They split their two meetings last season.

The Warriors have won three straight in Redcliffe, so we’re going to lean with Brown’s side to bounce back, but our best bet will be over 40.5 points, which landed in both encounters last season (Best over 40.5 total points odds $1.91 with bet365.)
