Greg Prichard writes: The Raiders have built a tremendous record against the Dragons over the years, at all venues. They have won the last six clashes between the two teams, including four at Canberra Stadium. This is when the Raiders traditionally do their best work - playing at home, at night, and in the middle of winter. The Raiders have got a lot of players out injured. The Dragons don’t score a lot of points.

AAP writes: The Dragons have not beaten the Raiders in Canberra for 12 years and have won just a single match from their past 14 against the green machine. Neither will be fielding a full-strength side due to Origin commitments and injury, with Josh Dugan the Raiders’ most notable loss. Utility Shaun Berrigan and forward Joel Thompson could make a return this weekend if they prove their fitness.
