Pretty good side

I think we should have them covered in the backs bar Thurston and Bowen.
KG V SCOTT should be a good little battle

fingers crossed something happens to jt on wednesday night!

Not a bad looking side, Strong foward pack. Hope our boys can measure up!

Not bad.

Still think we’ll win by 13+ though.

That is a massive bench……

Run them ragged…Cows are very beatable…

if wests-tigers can control/limit thurston & bowen, then we have a good chance of winning.
its still gonna be a very tough game. 👿

interesting to see travis burns has been dumped to the bench……for grant rovelli 😆

A good side but not their strongest, very beatable, especially if we can get under Thurston’s skin as much as we have been able to recently :slight_smile:.

i’m confident that we will beat them.

Let’s hope Thurston picks up an injury during SOO 😃


They’re pretty strong across the park. As you read down the team list, strong names pop up every few players, especially in the forwards. Rovelli is better used at 5/8 and is pretty dangerous in space.

Let’s cheer on Barret to knock Thurston’s jaw off his smug Qld’er face on Wednesday night!

If we muscle up in the forwards we should blow them off the park

They look pretty strong on paper but they’re forward pack is not the most mobile. I think if the Tigers start hard and fast, dominate possession early, they can rattle the Cowboys and run away with it. A lot will depend on how Thurston pulls up after SOO.

Not as confident looking at the side, but good to see Simon there on debut.
No Laurie and Galloway will hurt us. What is happining with Sauce? Would like an answer from Wests Tigers please….
