NRL: Tigers target back-to-back wins

Wests Tigers have the opportunity to pick up back-to-back wins when they entertain Canberra Raiders on Sunday afternoon.

It has been another tough season for the Tigers, but after a morale-boosting win over the Gold Coast Titans, they will be keen to make it two in a row.

The Tigers, Titans and Eels have all lost 10 games this season, and Benji Marshall’s men are 2.10 to end the campaign with the most losses.

An upset over the Raiders would go a long way to ensuring that does not happen, and they should be fired up for the win.

It will be far from easy though against a Raiders side that sit seventh on the ladder and are 3.00 to make the eight and play finals.

The green machine will also be desperate to bounce back from a home defeat against the Cowboys last week, so should come out with all guns blazing.

It is the only NRL encounter on Sunday and has all the ingredients to be a cracker.

. What: Wests Tigers v Canberra Raiders
. Where: Campbelltown Sports Stadium, Sydney
. When: 16:05 (AEST), Sunday 23rd June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel, Channel 9
. Odds: Wests Tigers 2.40, Canberra Raiders 1.58

Tigers ready to roar

The Tigers should be feeling good about themselves after picking up their first win since Round 4 against the Titans last week.

It was a much more disciplined performance by the Tigers and they will need the same again if they are to overcome the Raiders.

They will also have to snap a losing streak that has seen them fail to beat the Raiders in each of the last eight games, while they have also lost their last 10 games at Campbelltown.

It does not make happy reading for the join venture, but at least they have powerful centre Justin Olam, who has scored five tries in their three wins this season.

The former Melbourne Storm star can be backed at 13.00 to score the first try of the game, or 2.60 to score at anytime.

The Tigers beat the Titans by eight points last week and can be backed at 3.75 to do the same and beat the Raiders by 1-12.

Young back for Raiders

Campbelltown Sports Stadium has been a happy hunting ground for the Raiders, who have not lost at the venue in a decade.

Another two points will be the order of the day and they will be boosted by the inclusion of Hudson Young, who is not involved in State of Origin for game two.

The star second-rower was left out of the New South Wales squad and is priced at 2.45 to bounce back by scoring a try at anytime.

Jordan Rapana will also be a big threat after scoring 16 tries in 14 games against the Tigers. He is priced at 15.00 to grab the first of the game.

The Raiders won by 20 points when the two sides met in Canberra back in March, and will be out to inflict the same kind of damage in Sydney.

Canberra are priced at 2.75 to win by 13+ points.
