Wests Tigers travel to the nation's capital this Saturday to take on the Canberra Raiders at GIO Stadium, where they'll hope to end a five-game losing streak.
Jason Taylor's side were brave in defeat as they went down to the Melbourne Storm in Golden Point — a cruel blow considering their two-point loss just a week earlier.
They'll come into Saturday's clash desperate for a win, and with a strong recent record against the Green Machine in Canberra, they'll be confident of delivering a good result.
See all the Key Numbers for this Saturday's clash against the Canberra Raiders!
Both teams might have come away with a win when they met throughout 2015, but there's no denying the edge that Wests Tigers have over the Canberra Raiders in recent history, with Wests Tigers winning 12 of their last 16 games against the Green Machine.
Wests Tigers strong record over the Raiders isn't any different either at the nation's capital, with the visitors winning six of their last seven games at the venue — including their Round 22 clash in 2015. Last year, Ricky Stuart's men won just twice game at home with that record not much better from seasons gone by. Since Round 21, 2013, Canberra have won nine and lost 22 of their 31 matches at GIO Stadium, although they have won three of their last four.
Despite sitting outside the top eight heading into Saturday's game, Wests Tigers' attack has shown plenty of promise throughout 2016, with the Club scoring an impressive 28 tries through the opening seven rounds. Only four teams have scored more tries than Wests Tigers so far this season.
Canberra have made the second-most errors of any team so far in the NRL, with 76 so far this season.
Surprisingly, though, with the additional defensive work that would seemingly come following so many errors, the Raiders have missed just 153 tackles this year, the second fewest of any team in the NRL.
Raiders hooker Josh Hodgson has been one of the NRL's finest through the opening seven rounds, with the hooker one of just three players to kick two 40-20's so far this year.
However, the strengths of his kicking game come at a stark contrast to that of halves Blake Austin, Sam Williams and Aidan Sezer, who have chalked up just 2,607 kick metres so far this year — the second fewest of any team in the NRL.
