Match 5 – Canberra Raiders v Wests Tigers

Will the Tigers big win against the Eels last week be enough to boost their confidence against the Raiders at Canberra Stadium. The Raiders definitely aren’t the most impressive team in the NRL by any means, but at home they are often brilliant.

The Tigers earned plenty of new fans last week with their impressive victory and if that is a sign of how they will play for the rest of the season, then the top eight is definitely within their grasp.

However, the size of the Canberra pack is imposing and with the crowd behind them they will be looking to break through the Tigers weak mid-defence and if they can do that then they could get enough points on the board to claim their second win of 2010.

It all comes down to whether the Tigers can play with the same determination as last week.

Current Head-to-Head Odds: Raiders $2.15 – Tigers $1.70
