The Raiders are two wins clear of the improving Magpies, with the margin to increase to three victories with five rounds remaining if the border side prevails.

Neil Bradley’s men still have to observe one more bye before the end of the home and away season, whilst Lake Boga play each weekend through to August 20 – giving the Magpies incentive to win and potentially claim a qualifying final spot.

Both sides go into tomorrow’s match with wins in their past games. The Magpies defeated Tyntynder by 89 points last weekend, whilst the Raiders restricted Balranald to two goals in their 151-point win in round 11.

Lake Boga kicked 25 goals in last weekend’s win, with midfielders Raven Marika, Lochlan Dhurrkay and Ralph Dhamarrandji leading the way.

The trio will not get as much freedom tomorrow, with Tom Lamb, Jake Hare and Patrick Goble able to control proceedings when needed.

Blake Chant and Matthew Dean will work together in the Raiders’ back line to prevent Oliver Rohde and Cliff Ryan from scoring, whilst Jay Reynolds and Max Baldissera will be pivotal in the visitors’ forward line against Nathan Cunning and Matt Gadsden.

Koondrook/Barham has won its past two games against the Magpies, including a 13-point win at home in round two. A similar result will occur tomorrow.

PREDICTION: Koondrook/Barham will win by 20 points.
