It’ll be an emotional farewell as Wests Tigers farewell Benji Marshall against the Parramatta Eels at Bankwest Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 7:35pm (AEST).
It’s been another middling year for the Tigers, extending their finals drought to a club-record nine seasons. After moving to 5-5 midway through the year, Wests have gone 2-7 since and lost four of their past five. The main event tonight, however, will be the farewell of club legend Benji Marshall.
Parramatta may be headed to finals, but they’ve hardly set the world on fire over the last six weeks – alternating wins and losses and putting in particularly poor performances against South Sydney and Penrith. They need a win tonight to wrap-up a top four spot and could fall out if they lose.
The Eels have won four straight against the Tigers, including a 26-16 victory in Round 11 this year, and eight of the last ten overall.
