Canberra Raiders vs Cronulla Sharks Tips


Cronulla are in good form since Shaun Johnson’s return from injury. The Sharks can beat a Canberra side that can’t be trusted to win back to back games.

  • Canberra Raiders have lost 9 of their last 12 games.
  • Cronulla Sharks have won 5 of their last 6 games.

Head to Head


Cronulla have a 41-38 advantage against Canberra. 

The Raiders have won the last five including 12-10 earlier this season when Chad Townsend missed three of four attempts at goal.

Canberra Raiders Form


Canberra have a 6-10 record this season after winning their first two games. They have lost nine of their last 12 games.

Ricky Stuart’s side gave up a 20-8 lead in a 22-20 defeat to St George Illawarra in Round 15. They returned home and put in an embarrassing performance in a 44-6 defeat to Gold Coast where they missed 65 tackles.

The Raiders got back to winning ways against a Manly side missing their Origin stars. Canberra won 30-16 after completing 90% (43/48) of their sets.
