The West Tigers came back with two wins to barge there way into the top eight. With an absolute cliff hanger of a match when they won against the Manly Sea Eagles who were coming seventh, It was one good score 19-18 to the West Tigers and another win to the Sydney Roosters 17-10 it was a scrappy win but it was enough to send them into the top eight!! (The top seven to be exact!) 

Through out the past four matches Taniela Tuiaki has been in devastating form for the Tigers he has scored EIGHTEEN that's right EIGHTEEN tries through out the whole season. That is how many tries Paul Whatuira scored for the Tigers in 2005. But the record for the Tigers try scoring is Pat Richards with 20 tries in 2005. Lot's of Tigers got heaps of tries in 2005 that's because they were the champions in 2005!!!

There next match is against the Cronulla Sharks I hope they win this next game because if the Cowboys lose there next game against the Canterbury Bulldogs the West Tigers will go into 6th place. It's going to be one cliff hanger of the match but I want the Bulldogs to win this!! Let's hope the Tigers win for a start aye?!?!?!

Hey Tanielu.

You must have enjoyed watching yesterdays game aye? The Tigers scoring 10 tries on their way to a 56 - 10 mauling of the Cronulla Sharks. Your main man Tuiaki got THREE tries this time and has overtaken the record for most tries for the Tigers in a season. Many astute league people have mentioned how the Tigers 2009 season so far is verrrrryy similar to 2005 when they won it. They had a slow start, an average middle of the season but then had a a barnstorming finish to go all the way! Maybe just maybe the Tigers might do it this year...? The way Benji Marshall is playing too is like he was in 2005 when he was on fire! The signs are good......
