The Canberra Raiders will embark on arguably their shortest away trip when they head to Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Sunday, June 17.

Wests Tigers sit just one spot outside the top eight on 14 points, with the Raiders hot on their heels on 12 points and in 10th spot.

It’s been a month to forget for both teams – recording just two wins from their last five games.

However, the Raiders will be boosted by the return of hooker Josh Hodgson. A major cog to the Green Machine’s attack, the English international hasn’t played an NRL game in 2018 after injuring his knee in last year’s World Cup.

Wests Tigers will be hoping for a better crowd than the last game they played at the venue against the Raiders. Only 9243 people made their way through the turnstiles for that game in 2014.

The game kicks off at 4.10pm.
