Road to the Finals: Wests Tigers

Wests Tigers

Current ladder position: 11th position

Points differential: -68

Run Home: Storm (H), Cowboys (A), Roosters (H), Bulldogs (A), Raiders (A), Sharks (H).

Prediction

The run home for the Wests Tigers will take on even more meaning this season with their results directly affecting whether head coach Mick Potter remains in the job. In the last week, talks of in-fighting has plagued the club and with tough games to end the season, the club and supporters need to band together to ensure the Tigers play finals football for the first time since 2011.

First up, the Tigers play the Melbourne Storm at Campbelltown on a Monday night which includes a tribute to Simon Dwyer so you would expect the home side to lift and get an upset.

The next two games against the Cowboys and Roosters will ultimately determine if they play finals as both are jostling for those top eight spots. A tough game against the Cowboys will result in a loss before a win against the Premiers at Leichhardt will keep the fans faith in tact.

A rematch against the Bulldogs surely could not follow the same script as two weeks ago and a loss there will lead into two victories against lower opposition, Raiders and Sharks. These favorable results will improve the Tigers for-and-against and see them scrape into the top eight on 30 competition points.
