Sunday, June 21, 4.05 PM, Round 6, Campbelltown Stadium, Canberra Raiders take on Manly Sea Eagles NRL Match Preview
The Green Machine set to show Manly whos in charge just like they did the Wests Tigers who brought their A-GAME against the Raiders last round but were denied access to the try line on many occasions and struggled to score points, Manly, played the Broncos last round and was almost beaten giving up eighteen points to the Broncos in the first half.
If Manly turn up the way they did against the Broncos scratch in a win for the Raiders now! although the Raiders aren’t perfect either losing both first halves in previous games against the Knights and Wests Tigers getting off to a slow start.
