GAME ON!

I'll opt for the Raiders here 28-16 but really not sure about this one! Makes for an intriguing clash!

Good evening and welcome to tonight's clash between the Eels and Raiders. An interesting game between two sides coming off disappointing losses to the Roosters and Knights respectively. Mitch Moses makes his debut for the Eels tonight while Dunamis Lui takes Luke Bateman's spot on the bench in the only change for the away side.
