Desperate times for young Raiders
« on: August 06, 2011, 11:52:01 AM »
Desperate times

Five teams are set to fight out the final position in this year’s top eight. Holding that spot at the moment is Parramatta on 23 points. Behind them, St George Illawarra 22, Brisbane 21, Newcastle 21 and Canberra 19 are still alive.

Newcastle hosts Canberra on Sunday, in what is surely the final chance for the Raiders. Remember the Knights have never made the finals and Canberra is yet to miss. You can see that game on Fox Sports 2 from 11.30am EST.

The Dragons and Broncos have tough jobs against Wests Tigers and the Warriors respectively.

Parramatta will be expected to beat Souths, only adding to the pressure on the chasing teams.
