It is hard to consider being anywhere near the Tigers team after last week’s disaster where they lost against the Dragons by simply not knowing the rules.
The Raiders will potentially need to win this game to play finals football. The Tigers humiliating season will close on Sunday.
Canberra have dominated this matchup and with a likely incentive to play well the minus is the play. They have won four straight against the Tigers as well as eight of the last nine. Six of those eight wins are by 18 or more points.
The Raiders have covered 10 of the last 13 against the Tigers and the Tigers are a poor afternoon team covering just 11 of 32 day games.
Same Game Multi
Sebastian Kris has had a breakout year with 13 tries. He has seven tries in his last seven games and has crossed in eight of 10 Raiders wins.
Hudson Young is having a remarkable tryscoring season. He has 11 tries including four in his last three matches.
Jack Wighton has only four tries this year but his hard running is exactly the kind of football that gives the Tigers fits and with a finals berth likely on the line Wighton will be well and truly up for this one.
