Bailey Simonsson says the Canberra Raiders have the strike weapons to shatter the NRL's toughest barrier in a battle between two premiership contenders this week. The Raiders will hit the road to face the Penrith Panthers on Friday night in the hope of handing the competition frontrunners their first loss of the season. The Panthers have conceded 16 points throughout the competition's opening month at an average of just four per game, twice holding their opposition scoreless. Penrith halves Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai have orchestrated the Panthers attack which has notched up more points than all bar one rival team as Ivan Cleary's side set their sights on going one better than last year's grand final defeat. But Raiders winger Simonsson is confident Canberra, a side that pride themselves on their defensive resolve, can shatter Penrith's well-drilled defence and pile on the points themselves.
