Both sides are desperate for a win however for completely differing reasons as the Cowboys look to cling on to their spot in the top eight while the Tigers hope to avoid the wooden spoon with a win in Campbelltown.
The Cowboys’ injury toll has been discussed at length lately, however, Antonio Winterstein’s return will help ease that slightly as they look to build on their second half performance last week which saw them out-muscle the Sharks. Jason Taumalolo is quite simply a human wrecking ball and will need to carry his side across the line in these final two weeks if they’re to feature in finals football.
The Tigers’ stars know the end is near and they’re playing like it. They’re desperate yet free-flowing, making for some entertaining football to be played. Luke Brooks has also escalated his game in recent weeks, showing that when he takes command of the side next season, they may be alright. They gave the Roosters an almighty scare last week and will look to replicate that dose with a little bit extra this Friday night.
We’re giving the Tigers a real shot to come up with the points this weekend in a result that will leave the Cowboys clinging on to their finals hopes in the final round.
Tigers by 4.
