NSW Cup & Jersey Flegg: Round Eight Preview

The Canberra Raiders Jersey Flegg and NSW Cup sides return to GIO Stadium this weekend for an exciting triple header on Sunday afternoon.


The Raiders NSW Cup return to GIO stadium this Sunday, looking to overturn last weekend's loss and bounce back against the Newtown Jets.

After a strong start to the season, the Raiders have suffered consecutive losses and will be aiming to rebound against a Jets side who have had mixed results. 

This week has seen a change in the spine with Kaeo Weekes called up to make his Raiders debut against the Sharks, meaning Manaia Waitere will move into five-eighth.

The Jets enter this week's contest after a tight four-point loss to the Sea Eagles and another loss to South Sydney the week before, meaning the Raiders will face a Newtown side aiming to secure their third win of the season. 

These two sides have had one encounter this season, a 28-all draw at PointsBet Stadium in round four. 

Jersey Flegg Cup

The Canberra Raiders Jersey Flegg Cup side return to GIO Stadium for the first time since round two for a contest with the Cronulla Sutherland Sharks. 

The Raiders returned to their winning ways last week with a strong win away from home against the Melbourne Storm. 

Sitting at the top of the ladder, Canberra will be looking to maintain their strong start to the season with their second game against Cronulla in the space of a month. 

The Cronulla Sharks arrive in Canberra fresh off their first win this season after defeating the Manly Sea Eagles 30-10.

These two sides have played one previous matchup this season, which was a strong 30-4 victory for the Raiders at PointsBet Stadium.
