Dragons v Raiders preview
Jack Wighton is the big inclusion for this match returning from COVID protocols which ruled him out of State of Origin II selection. Grand Final fullback in 2019, Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad, has also been named to return from a hamstring injury, but interestingly from the bench, failing to displace young gun Xavier Savage.
The Dragons are unchanged and hoping to keep the good Wollongong vibes going, despite the fortnight’s break, after overcoming Souths 32-12 on a Thursday night at WIN Stadium.
That snuck them into the eight, well positioned at seven wins and as many losses in Anthony Griffin’s second year. Their opponents stole victory from Newcastle last round, on a sunny Sunday in Canberra, thanks to Hudson Young and are snapping at the Dragons’ heels in 11th.
Canberra is looking to break a series of win-losses over the past four games.
What time is Dragons v Raiders?
The game starts at 4.05pm (AEST), 3.35pm (ACST) and 2.05pm (AWST) on Sunday 3 July.
