The only match up with no finals implications will end the 2017 home and away season as James Tedesco and Aaron Woods say goodbye to the Tigers faithful.
Keiran Foran will also play his last game in Warriors colours in the old suburban ground of Leichhardt Oval. The Tigers have been reasonably impressive of late, despite having played four top-eight sides in as many weeks.
The game has the chance to be an open, free-flowing contest with nothing to play for as both sides have a chance to show off their offensive flair. Luke Brooks has emerged in recent weeks, taking ownership of this Tigers side, one that will be his in 2018.
James Tedesco was somewhat quiet last week and will look to bow out as a Tigers player in style.
The Warriors have lost eight on the trot and blew a near-certain win last weekend against Manly. Shaun Johnson’s importance couldn’t have been more highlighted over this stretch and his return last week – albeit not at his best – still saw him set up a pair of tries.
Wests form over the last few weeks is enough to suggest they’ll set out their junior stars in style.
Tigers by 8.
