Sydney Roosters face one of their favoured opponents when they take on Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday. Having lost to the Storm last weekend, the reigning premiers can bounce back against a Wests side they have beaten in 13 of their last 14 games.

Wests Tigers Form


Wests Tigers are up to ninth on the ladder and firmly in the hunt for the finals. Last week's dramatic 29-28 win over bottom club Canterbury Bulldogs snapped a three-game losing run and took their record for the season to 6-8, leaving them two wins outside the eight.

Wests have won only two of their last seven games. Both of those victories came against the bottom two sides in the competition: the Bulldogs and Brisbane Broncos.
