NSWRL TV Preview | Sivo keen for another haul

Parramatta Eels flyer Maika Sivo will be looking to continue his good form after being named in The Knock-On Effect NSW Cup team to face Canberra Raiders at GIO Stadium in Canberra at 1.45pm on Sunday 29 May with all the action to be captured on NSWRL TV.

The Eels v Raiders match is one of two games scheduled for NSWRL TV this round with Wests Tigers to take on Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Ignite HQ Centre of Excellence at 7pm in another Monday Night Football blockbuster.

Sivo made a spectacular return from a knee injury last week after scoring two tries against Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles. The blockbusting winger ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in Round 23 last year and is closing in on a NRL return.

Sivo has been named in an extended squad for the Eels’ NRL team to face the Raiders at 4.05pm on Sunday 29 May but the club could be prepared to give him another week to improve his fitness.

The Fijian flyer isn’t the only recognised name with Canberra having included NRL players Corey Harawira-Naera, Matt Frawley and Semi Valemei while the Eels have Mitch Rein, Bryce Cartwright and Jake Arthur. The fifth-placed Eels and the seventh-placed Raiders will be desperate for the win to stay in touch with the top four.

Wests Tigers suffered a 22–4 loss against Mounties last round, which saw them slip to fifth place on the ladder. They’ll be looking to secure a win over the Sharks in Round Five, who maintained second place after a big win over the Wentworthville Magpies.
