Wests Tigers players have earmarked Sunday's clash with Canberra as a crunch game in their NRL season.

After they won five of their first six the Tigers have won just two of the eight that have followed and are in a dog fight with the Raiders to climb back into the eight.

"In the context of our season (it's big) ... This game against the Raiders this Sunday is going to be a huge challenge," Tigers co-captain Elijah Taylor said.
