WESTS TIGERS AIM TO OVERCOME ‘BOGEY’ TEAM

Wests Tigers will be searching for just its third win at CUA Stadium when the team travels to the foot of the mountains on Saturday, April 24, to tackle the Penrith Panthers in round seven of the Telstra Premiership.

In nine matches at CUA Stadium since the joint venture began in 2000, Penrith have recorded seven wins to Wests Tigers’ two. The last time Wests Tigers won at CUA Stadium was in 2006, a 24-20 victory.

The Panthers have proven to be a real bogey side for Wests Tigers, having won 13 of their 17 clashes since 2000, a factor not lost on coach Tim Sheens.

“We have overcome Parramatta and Manly in the last 12 months to win games we never have been able to win, so we have to get up for the Penrith game,’’ Sheens said.

Sheens is hoping to have prop Keith Galloway (shoulder) available when he names his team tomorrow. Former Penrith players Geoff Daniela and Junior Moors will be hoping to retain their places in the team beaten by the Bulldogs to take on their former team-mates.

Kick-off at CUA Stadium is 5.30pm.

Biggest Head-To-Head Wins

PENRITH 44 d. WESTS TIGERS 10 at CUA Stadium, 2001.
WESTS TIGERS 43 d. PENRITH 26 at ANZ Stadium, 2007.

I remember the win where Robbie slotted a field goal just before half time when we were up and we needed it! And the game where we came back from a huge deficit, in the night, notable for Payton’s ‘show and go’ try and Stuart Flanagan’s stunning attack.

C’mon tigers! It’s my birthday on the 24th, don’t let me down

I can’t wait to see how the boys back up from the loss with more than a week to recover/prepare!! The test of a good team is not loosing two in a row but this is going to be a tough match, I hope Galloway and Payto are both back and ready to rip in…COME ON TIGERS!!

@fulleightyminutes:

Stuart Flanagan’s stunning attack.

Wow I wish I had have seen this.

If the Fonz picks a light weight team, or a couple of players that lack impact, they will beat us by 40.

I know, seems like I am making it up. But he was outstanding.

well it is monday tom, and its against my religion not to drink on mondays.

Maybe you too should get a room as fascinating as it is to see man love blooming or back on topic….

Panthers are the ultimate Wests Tigers bogey team IMO…doesn’t matter how good or bad either team is playing they have always troubled us…

Pencilled this one in at the start of the season as a must win game…big test for the Wests Tigers mentally…

Fire up boys give it to the Panfers for once… :deadhorse:

Will be interested to see how the boys turn-up. 2 energy sapping performances with minimal breaks in a row. They have some more time this week. Will need to be mentally ready and hopefully a big side is named as we will need them.
