South Sydney Rabbitohs can wrap up a finals spot with victory over Wests Tigers on Thurday at Bankwest Stadium. Ninth-placed Wests need a win themselves to move to within two points of the finals spots.

Wests Tigers Form


Wests recorded a stunning comeback victory last weekend when defeating Manly Eagles 34-32 thanks to three tries in the last 11 minutes. 

The win ended a two-game losing run and boosted the Tigers' finals hopes and moved them to within four points of eighth-placed Cronulla Sharks, and six behind the Rabbitohs.

The negative for Wests has been their form against the better teams in the competition, with the Tigers 0-8 against teams 11th or higher on the ladder since the third week of the season.

Wests Tigers Team News


Don't change a winning team is a common thought, and that is what Wests have done. Josh Reynolds and Russell Packer have been named on an extended bench depsite walking out at half-time of the game against Manly.

The Tigers team for Thursday is below: 

1. Moses Mbye 2. David Nofoaluma 3. Joseph Leilua 4. Adam Doueihi 5. Asu Kepaoa 6. Benji Marshall 7. Luke Brooks 8. Josh Aloiai 9. Harry Grant 10. Thomas Mikaele 11. Luke Garner 12.

South Sydney Rabbitohs Form


South Sydney's five-game winning run came to an end when they went down 22-16 to the Melbourne Storm last Friday night. 

The Rabbitohs had been the NRL's form team prior to that loss, with the wins including a 30-point win over Manly and a 38-0 thumping of Parramatta Eels.

Souths have not lost to a team outside the top 8 since the season resumed, and a win over Wests would guarantee them finishing inside the top eight.
