Wests Tigers NYC Head Coach Andrew Webster has named his side to take on the Canberra Raiders for their Round 25 clash on Saturday, August 30.

Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 3:15pm from GIO Stadium, Canberra.

After narrowly defeating the Bulldogs 24-22 in Round 24 to keep their top-four hopes alive, Wests Tigers will make the trip to Canberra this weekend desperate for another two points. Webster’s side might sit in sixth place heading into this weekend's match, but incredibly, they’re just three points off the minor premiership and the first-placed Newcastle Knights.

And with several teams above them playing against each other this week, they’ll know that two points could well put them back in the top four heading into Round 26.

Wests Tigers got the points in a comprehensive victory at Campbelltown Sports Stadium when these two sides met in Round 16, but they’ll have to overcome a number of injuries this weekend when they take on the Raiders in the nation's capital.

Captains Nathan Milone and Matthew Woods remain sidelined this week, while Andrew Kazzi joins the likes of Sione Alofi and Marion Seve on an injury list than seemingly gets longer as the season draws on. In some good news, though, Jordan Grant returns to the front row, having missed the last two weeks with a niggling bicep injury.
