Following consecutive defeats, the Raiders find themselves yearning to reclaim victory when they confront the embattled Tigers on Sunday in the nation’s capital. The season for the Raiders has been a curious one, commencing with a string of abysmal performances, suffering four defeats in five games, yet recuperating admirably to secure ten wins in the subsequent twelve matches.
Nevertheless, the Raiders have yet to assert their dominance over any opponent this season, with all their triumphs achieved by a mere 1-12 margin. Presently, the Raiders enter this encounter carrying the weight of two recent losses against the Warriors and Knights, the latest being a disheartening 28-6 defeat on their home turf.
Despite these setbacks, the Raiders still occupy a respectable position, holding the fifth spot on the ladder. However, they cannot afford any complacency in this pivotal game. Meanwhile, the Tigers face the daunting possibility of securing their second consecutive wooden spoon, unless they experience a remarkable reversal of fortune in the final five rounds of the season.
In fairness to the Tigers, their recent performances haven't been entirely disappointing. They put up a valiant fight against a full-strength Rabbitohs side, conceding a 32-18 defeat, and narrowly lost by four points to the Dragons in the preceding week.
With the return of Luke Brooks and Api Koroisau, and Jahreem Bula showcasing incredible form at fullback, the Tigers possess promising talents in their spine and a robust forward pack, instilling them with the confidence to match an under-pressure Raiders outfit.
