Do The Tigers Have What It Takes?
I haven’t done a post about my favourite team (The West Tigers) in quite a while, but in that while they have stormed their way into top 8 contention with four spectacular victories in a row against all high flying teams the Cowboys,the Sea Eagles, the Dragons and the Roosters. Throughout that period they have had few bumps with some minor injuries with key players missing out on the big games but thankfully they have shown that they have enough depth and faith in themselves to win those big games.
This week they have Penrith and I believe that if they win this game it will lead them to a hopeful top four spot since they will be playing teams at the bottom of the table including the Cronulla Sharks and the Gold Coast Titans. The Tigers have been putting in the extra effort in the few weeks. They have to be careful that they do not get anyone else injured for the up coming games because they are absolutely crucial to their outcome of this year.
Obviously the key players in Benji Marshall and Robbie Farah have to be performing at their best to keep themselves in contention as well as there young guns in Robert Lui and Tim Moltzen. Honestly I think the best place that they can finish at the moment is in 5th place. Because with the top four teams way ahead in points probably there only hope is to hop in front of the Dragons who are in 5th place.
Everyone knows what the Tigers can do, they are the most damaging attacking team in the NRL for goodness sake! They can score from anywhere on the field, they create something from nothing. They are the West Tigers.............
