The Canberra Raiders have a tricky task ahead of them when they take on the New Zealand Warriors to get today’s Sunday arvo footy underway. Join The Roar for live scores frm 2pm (AEST).
The Warriors have been the surprise packet of 2020. Written off by everyone, it was only last week when their finals hopes ended even though they’ve spent the vast majority of the season away from home.
With two games left to end their campaign on a high note, they certainly can’t be taken lightly.
The Raiders meanwhile are still a sneaky chance of making the top-four. They’ll need two wins to close out the regular season, but being on home turf today will help their chances. They’re also in fine form, particularly in attack, where they’ve scored more than 30 points in four of their past five.
The Warriors have been dealt a bit of a selection blow with loan players Daniel Alvaro and George Jennings leaving the club and Jamayne Taunoa-Brown suspended.
