Red-hot Raiders await
Melbourne are set to embark on one of the toughest road trip’s in the competition this weekend when they travel to the nation’s capital.
The Raiders are in red-hot form, sitting third on the NRL ladder coming off a stirring victory against the first-placed Sharks last weekend.
Storm back-rower Tohu Harris says his side are under no illusions what they face against the competition’s most effective attack.
“It’s going to be a tough challenge. They are a physical side all over the field, they’ve got a lot of dangerous players,” Harris said on Wednesday.
“They can score a lot of points. If you switch off for one second they can make you pay.
“We’re going to have to do a lot better and be on our game to match what they’ve got.
“They are a team that can blow you off the field.”
While Melbourne weren’t at their best in last round’s golden point victory over the Rabbitohs, the New Zealand international believes there were still positives.
“We knew we didn’t play as well as we have during the year,” Harris explained.
“It shows a bit of character to pull out a win like that and hopefully we can build on that and keep going forward.
“We’ve got to prepare as well as we can for it and turn up with the right attitude.”
