West Tigers want to shake the Eels curse
It’s the statistic that would take the roar out of any Wests Tigers Fan, a fact that has plagued the joint venture’s confidence in recent seasons and could ruin their hopes for a finals birth come September.
Prior to their NRL clash this Monday night, the Tigers have lost their past seven matches against an Eels side who are now starting to develop more belief in their ability as a team.
Most of that comes from their effort in downing the Sydney Roosters last weekend in a game that signaled the start of a revival in form and attitude.
For Tim Sheens’ men, however, this is the last thing they need from a side who has constantly given them more grief than mad cow disease.
Many of the current crop at the Wests Tigers are yet to taste victory against Parramatta.
Come Monday night though, there is a lot at stake for two of the best supported teams in the league heartland.
Despite the game being played at Parramatta stadium, this match gives the Tigers their best opportunity to claim a nemesis that has messed with their confidence for years now.
While history bears no boundaries, the Tigers must overcome one of their own on Monday night if they are to rid themselves of the curse that hangs around Parramatta way.
