Sunday, June 7,  4.05 PM, Round 4, Campbelltown Stadium, Canberra Raiders take on Newcastle Knights NRL Match Preview

It really is looking exciting for Raiders fans this year, starting 3-0 and showcasing some class against Melbourne in what was meant to be a close one, top of the table, topping the for and against points what’s not to like about Canberra?

The poor Knights down on troops scrambling for a draw against the mighty Panthers but did well to get that. This clash is second vs third on the ladder and it could be a surprising result, both teams deserving of their placements can the Knights keep up with the Green Machine?

Last time they met

The last time these two teams met the Canberra Raiders beat the Knights 17-10 at home. Previously, in earlier years and recent form the Newcastle Knights have had held their own against the Canberra Raiders with wins being split somewhat evenly whether Canberra is at home to them or not. Were sticking with Raiders though they seem to have some extra mojo that they didn’t have the previous year.
