Many calling it Clash of the Round, third-placed Panthers taking on sixth-placed Wests Tigers in another battle of the West special, will Nathan Cleary be the Wests Tigers nemesis and tear them to shreds or will the newest West Tigers comrade Harry Grant step up again and be the diversity the Wests Tigers have been lacking on the big stage, this really shapes as big test for the Wests Tigers.
