Sunday, August 16, 4.05 PM, Round 14, Bankwest Stadium, Sydney, Wests Tigers take on Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs NRL Match Preview
Wests Tigers were embarrassed by the Knights in their last outing and probably played their worst game of the season, now they get a break at the right time to play the underdogs of the competition who have been travelling better of late with Keiran Forum showing form and others stepping up, but which team for the Wests Tigers turns up this week? the one that began the hype or last rounds one? either way, the Wests Tigers are on the ropes and needs this win desperately to be any chance of finals.
