Wests Tigers vs St George Illawarra Dragons Preview
The Tigers and the Dragons were both victims of narrow losses last week as they look to bounce back on Friday night at Bankwest.
Having defeated Dragons when they met earlier in the month with a gutsy eight-point win in Wollongong, a performance Michael Maguire will be hoping his side can replicate.
Wests dominated possession that day after forcing the Dragons into 45 missed tackles and based on everything we’ve seen from St George recently it’s no real surprise to find the Tigers as the short-priced favourites ahead of the rematch.
There’s also good news on the injury front with Wests expecting James Roberts and Russell Packer to play.
The Dragons, meanwhile, have further concerns after Cody Ramsey failed to pass his HIA last week in the loss to the Sharks.
Obviously, it’s difficult to feel overly confident in the Tigers, but the fact they’ve won three straight over the Dragons dating back to last season is reason enough to believe they can pick up their fourth win of the season.
