Wests Tigers look a rejuvenated side under new coach Ivan Cleary and despite their loss last week, there’s a bounce in their step for the first time in a while.

They could welcome back halfback Luke Brooks as Mitchell Moses and James Tedesco have both shown why they’re such highly touted players in the halfback’s absence.

They run into a Bulldogs side who’ve had the wood over them in recent times, chalking up nine wins in their past 11 meetings.

Josh Reynolds was a class above in their win over Souths last week and will be looking to keep that form going as the Dogs look to win their fourth game on the trot.

The Tigers fragile defensive line is something Des Hasler will no doubt be analysing this week as David Klemmer returns for the blue and white men.

Who wins?

While the Tigers have improved in the fortnight since hiring Ivan Cleary, a lot of questions still surround the club and it seems they’ve run into the Bulldogs at the wrong time as they’ve hit a nice groove after a slow start to the year.

Dogs by 10.
