Game Preview.
The Raiders come home off the back of a solid win away against the struggling Cowboys while the Titans are on a 3 game losing streak and will be hoping to snap that with a win in the nations capital. 

Key Match Ups.

Match Up #1: Aidan Sezer v Ashley Taylor

The halfbacks will be wanting to control this game from the outset. Both players have been hot and cold in season 2018. So both players will be looking to guide their teams to a win this weekend. 

Match Up #2: Josh Papalii v Jai Arrow

Arrow has been a shining light for the Gold Coast Titans so far this season and will be up against it with Josh Papalii pulling on the lock jersey for the Raiders. 

Both players are in the mix for a state of origin jersey for Queensland so I’m sure he selectors will be watching eagerly at this match up. 

Match Up #3: Joseph Leilua v Konrad Hurrell

The 2 block buster centres will be on opposite sides of the field this week but in terms of a same number match up this is mouth watering. Both centres use skill and strength and run hard. 

Looking forward to see who gets the points out of these 2. 

Nath’s Prediction
Raiders are slowly starting to build some momentum without being perfect and if they’re not careful a determined Titans outfit could ambush them at home. 
Titans by 2
