There's just two months left to go until we kick the 2013 NRL season off against Wayne Bennett's Newcastle Knights at Hunter Stadium.
Wests Tigers will travel up the F3 to take on the Novocastrians on Monday 11th, March at 7.30pm.
Newcastle are rated a $13 chance by the punters to take out the premiership under the guidance of super coach Bennett.
Wests Tigers are building to the season opener during the toughest pre-season in recent memory under coach Mick Potter who is pushing the players harder than ever during Sydney's scorching Summer.
Since Wests Tigers' debut season in 2000, the club has played the Knights 17 times, winning 9, losing 8 with no draws.
The Knights (436) edge Wests Tigers (407) on for and against with Wests Tigers having the better of the recent running.
One of Wests Tigers' most famous victories came against the Knights in 2001, coming back from 28-12 with Kevin McGuiness scoring the fairytale winner on his return from long-term suspension.
Wests Tigers scored a thrilling Golden-Point win against the Knights in 2011 with a Robbie Farah field goal sending a packed Leichhardt Oval wild.
