The History: Played 38; Canberra 20, Newcastle 16, drawn 2. The Raiders may have the edge overall but they have a terrible record in the Hunter, claiming just five wins from 17 starts. The last eight matches are split four apiece. Despite the even spread of results the individual games haven’t been close – in those eight contests the victors have run away with it by more than 22 points per game!

Match Officials: Referees – Gerard Sutton & Brett Suttor; Sideline Officials – Adam Reid & Matt Noyen; Video Referees – Shayne Hayne & Matt Rodwell.
Televised: Fox Sports – Live 6.30pm.

The Way We See It: To paraphrase Wayne Bennett, it will depend to some degree which Knights side gets off the bus. Canberra aren’t traditionally a team that travels well, and although they won on their last venture up the F3 (32-16 in Round 14 last year) it’s a ground where they tend to lose, and lose badly.

You’d have to think it unlikely both sides will replicate last week’s form, making this tough to pick, but we liked what we saw from Newcastle. Given the history of blowouts we’ll say Knights by 13+.
