The Wests Tigers will be eyeing off an upset win when they take on the injury-depleted Sydney Roosters. Join The Roar for live scores from 5:30pm (AEST).
The Tigers need another win to keep their finals hopes flickering, with a four-point gap now opened up between themselves and eighth.
Meanwhile, the Roosters will be hoping to bounce back after a loss to Melbourne. A loss could drop the Tricolours down as low as sixth.
Wests are unchanged following their one-point win over the Bulldogs, but Michael Maguire will be hoping to have one or both of Alex Twal and Thomas Mikaele available, with both named on an extended bench.
The Roosters get a few desperately needed senior troops back, with Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Brett Morris both named to start.
However, it’s not all rosy on the selection front for Trent Robinson, with last week’s halves pairing of Luke Keary and Lachlan Lam both unavailable.
Keary in particular is a huge loss, and the Tigers will fancy their chances of claiming a huge scalp.
