The Tigers played very well last week. Todd Payton led a willing forward pack to dominate the Eels as Gareth Ellis and Robbie Farah were superb. Add to that the blistering performance from a backline boasting some supreme talent. To complete the package, the Tigers defense, as Benji Marshall says, can turn up whenever they want to.
They may not want to in Canberra on Easter Sunday with temperatures predicted to be as low as 9 degrees and a high of 20. Herein lies the question facing every tipster whenever the Raiders play at home. I must be the millionth person to point this out in a match preview. I must be the millionth person to point out that I've pointed this out! So, Raiders win at home in a close one with Terry Campese getting plenty of room to move and Bronson Harrison having a blinder against his old club.
My Man of the Match Prediction: Terry Campese
My Tip: Raiders 32-22
