Wests Tigers vs Sydney Roosters Preview
The Roosters will be hoping that some added reinforcements can help them forget all about last week’s no-show against the Storm.
Brett Morris, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Angus Crichton and Daniel Tupou are all a chance to lace the boots against the Tigers in a game that holds plenty of finals implications.
A win for the Roosters is crucial with the fifth-place Raiders breathing down their neck, while the Tigers simply need to win out if they wish to earn a spot back in the eight.
Wests got the job done last Sunday against the Bulldogs, but it was hardly convincing.
The Tigers fought their way back from the death to win on a late field goal from Luke Brooks, and although the two points are all that matters, it’s difficult to feel confident in Wests moving forward.
Sydney has covered in five of their last six away games against the Tigers and they look very difficult to fault with their supporting cast returning to the fold.
The Chooks are also 4-1 following a previous loss, so it’s worth backing them to cover a fairly generous line.
