100th first grade game for Dylan Edwards tonight.

Super Saturday continues from the nation's capital with the Canberra Raiders taking on the Penrith Panthers. When these sides met in Rd 7, it was a convincing victory for the Panthers 36-6. However, both sides drastically differ from when those teams played in late April. For the home side, Xavier Savage is out and Albert Hopoate replaces him, the rest of the side is unchanged. For the premiers, the big change is in the halves, Sean O'Sullivan wears the coveted number 7 in place of the suspended Nathan Cleary, and Jaeman Salmon is in the number six jumper. Kikau is a late withdrawal, replaced in jersey 20 by Chris Smith. The final change is Charlie Staines being replaced by debutant Sunia Turuva. Kickoff in 20 mins
