The Roosterbacks have lost to the Raiders twice this season, the Titans twice and the Raiders two.
The Raiders have lost five of their past six games to the Roopies.
It’s all about the halvesAnd the Roos are set for another home clash with the Raiders at Allianz Stadium on Saturday night.
The Broncos will be playing the Titans at the Gabba this weekend but it’s their return to Townsville that will be a big one for the visitors.
The Titans have won five of the past six matches at the MCG, the first of which came in round six.
