Round 15 of the NRL Premiership concludes this afternoon when the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs take on the Wests Tigers at CommBank Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 4.05pm AEST.

With these two sides towards the bottom of the ladder, every win is crucial, even if it is just to avoid the wooden spoon at the end of the year. But, with new coaches at the helm of both teams, victory here would be just a bit more sweet.

Bulldogs fans could be forgiven for having tears in the eyes after last weekend’s match against the Eels. It wasn’t just the 34-4 scoreline to celebrate, it was the way that they did it.

They absorbed wave after wave of Eels attack early, and it seemed inevitable that the defence would crack. It didn’t and, from there, you could sense the confidence growing. The last try, in particular, going through several sets of hands, was pure class.

Chris Patolo will miss the match due to concussion protocols, so Kurtis Morrin will join the bench for his NRL debut. Raymond Faitala-Mariner has been named to start with Corey Waddell moving to the bench.

The Wests Tigers Round 14 wasn’t quite as memorable. The Sea Eagles won 30-4 in an average game of football, their win helped along by the send off of Brent Naden, who will spend an extended period on the sidelines.

It has been written about all season, but the Tigers halves just lack that creativity that you need to have to break down opposition defences. They don’t score enough points to win many games of football.

In a big boost though, Adam Doueihi makes his return from long term injury on the bench and Asu Kepaoa replaces Naden. Luciano Leilua has been granted a release to join the Cowboys, with Kelma Tuilagi taking his spot. Fa’amanu Brown joins the bench at the expense of Jock Madden.

Prediction

There’s an inherent risk in picking the Bulldogs to win back to back.

However, whilst they haven’t always won recently, they have been scoring more points.

That remains an Achilles Heel for the Tigers, which is why the Bulldogs will win.
