The last time these two teams met the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at home scraped in a win against Wests Tigers 18-16. Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, 36 matches played between the Bulldogs and the Wests Tigers favour the Bulldogs winning 23, Long story short the Wests Tigers attack has been a lot better as they have scored a lot more points, but in defense the Bulldogs have conceded fewer points, this game could go either way.
Wests Tigers for the win.
