Raiders or Panthers await

Melbourne will host either Canberra or Penrith in a Preliminary Final at AAMI Park in two weeks time after the completion of Week 1 of the NRL Finals.

The Raiders and Panthers will face off in the 2nd Semi-Final this Saturday night at GIO Stadium in the nation’s capital with the winner advancing to a Preliminary Final match-up with Storm.

Canberra suffered a narrow two-point loss to Cronulla in their Qualifying Final on Saturday afternoon while the Panthers moved into Week 2 of the NRL Finals thanks to a blistering performance against the Bulldogs in their Elimination Final.
