Five Things: Raiders v Titans
The Raiders return to action this Sunday looking to avenge an early-season loss to the Gold Coast Titans.
We’ve put together a list of five things we can’t wait to see as Canberra makes the trek to the Gold Coast after a bye allowed the side to freshen up the legs ahead of Round 16.
What do you think? Is there anything else you can’t wait to see this weekend? Head over to our Facebook page and let us know!
Race for the eight heats up
The game itself has all the makings of a thriller.
Canberra comes into the clash sitting seventh on the ladder, while the Titans are just one point behind in eighth. The match looms as a brilliant opportunity for the Raiders to cement a spot in the top eight heading in to the second half of the season.
If Round 4’s game is anything to go by, this could be one for the ages.
Sezer returns to the Gold Coast
After spending four seasons with the Titans, current Raiders halfback Aidan Sezer makes his return to the Gold Coast this Sunday.
Sezer will have had this one penciled in for months, after missing Round 4’s meeting with his old club due to injury.
The crafty number seven will be looking to put in a big performance to help Canberra distance themselves from the eighth-placed Titans on the ladder.
Wighton and Boyd are back
The Raiders’ playing stocks have been bolstered by the returns of fullback Jack Wighton and hulking front-rower Shannon Boyd.
Both players played big roles in Canberra’s three-game winning streak, before suspensions rubbed them out of the Broncos clash in Round 14.
Wighton was instrumental in his last start against the Sea Eagles, scoring a try and setting up two more on his way to a man of the match performance.
