Saturday, August 15, 7.35 PM, Round 14, GIO Stadium, Canberra, Canberra Raiders take on Brisbane Broncos NRL Match Preview
The Green machine probably coming off a shock loss to the Panthers after feeling the full force of the Panther Power, the Canberra Raiders will be set to raid the Broncos for every point they can get, unhappy and looking for redemption this clash will prove to be a nightmare clash for the Brisbane Broncos, no Tevita Pangai Junior for the Broncos might help open the flood gates for the Raiders as the Broncos don’t really have a replacement that equals his talent and aggression.
