Preview

The Newcastle Knights are coming off a 30 point to 10 lost to Manly, whilst the Tigers lost 36 points to 4 against the Roosters. Both the Knights and the Tigers are in the bottom half of the table and would like to move up if they want to make the 2015 Finals Series, despite it being a far way away.

The West Tigers have left an unchanged side from there game last round against the strong Roosters, whilst the Knights have swapped David Fa’alogo and Korbin Sims. Fa’alogo will now start.

Last time these teams met, The Tigers won in a close and physical game, 23 points to 20. The Knights will be looking for payback, as well as making an impression on the NRL.

This weekend’s game will be undoubtedly physical, and full of in your face action. You won’t want to miss it.
