Struggling Tigers welcome trip to nation’s capital

WESTS Tigers may have lost their past five straight, but they will be confident they can break the rut when they travel to an away venue that has given them joy recently.

They will take on the Raiders at Canberra's GIO Stadium where they have won six from their past seven games.

The Tigers will also be boosted by the return of lock Sauaso Sue, back into the starting side after concussion.

After impressive first-grade debuts, Tigers young guns Josh Addo-Carr and JJ Felise retain their respective positions on the wing and bench.

Canberra has also had a sluggish past five weeks, with three losses and a draw to slip to seventh after a strong start to the season.

A heavy 40-16 loss to the Sharks on home soil last weekend would have the Raiders looking to rectify that result.

They won just two of 12 home games last season.
