Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire declared he was "sick and tired of the ups and downs" after his side's shock loss to the Titans and wants an immediate response against fourth-placed Canberra.
The Raiders also have a point to prove after being soundly beaten by Newcastle last Sunday, with some commentators questioning if complacency had crept in following a big win over Melbourne.
Adding to the intrigue of the clash is the fact that Joey Leilua will face Canberra for the first time since leaving during the pre-season.

Young hooker Harry Grant has been most impressive since joining the Tigers, but he's got a stern test coming up against the masterful Josh Hodgson. A bit of creativity around the ruck, especially with the new six-again rule, could be the difference.
