We're just moments from getting underway here at Allianz Stadium. A big win to the NSW Cup team over Newtown opened the night.
Tim Moltzen kicks off and we're underway!
3rd Minute: The left edge combination of Anasta and Farah looking dangerous already.
6th: Wests Tigers scramble to successfully defend their line after Minichiello gets the ball away following a bomb catch.
7th: Roosters knock on inside their 30. Great chance for Wests Tigers.
9th: The Roosters have come here to bomb Moltzen and Utai. No success yet.
11th: Anasta is pumped up. Comes out of the line to put a hit on former team mate Jared Warea-Hargreaves. Works hard from dummy half on the next tackle to force a forward pass.
13th: Nice break from Jennings on the Wests Tigers 30m line, but it comes to nothing.
15th: TRY to the Roosters. Boyd Cordner slices through to the left of the posts after a nice ball from Mitchell Pearce. Try comes following two penalties in a row.
19th: TRY to Daniel Tupou who flies above Matt Utai to catch a cross field bomb and touch down in the left hand corner. Video ref has no problems with the grounding.
The kick from the sideline is missed.
21st: Wests Tigers concede another ruck penalty. That's four now.
23rd: Wests Tigers get their first penalty and the small crowd goes up.
25th: Matt Bell replaces Galloway and his first involvement is to attempt to support a Chris Lawrence half break down the sideline.
29th: Farah rolls it into the in-goal and Wests Tigers come from every where to win a repeat set.
Mistake as no one catches the drop out and it travels back to the Wests Tigers' 30m line. Good set in attack, though, and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is forced to jump for a high ball in his in-goal.
32nd: Farah with a pin point long kick from dummy half and Ayshford and Utai trap Minichiello in the in-goal. Drop out caught, this time.
33rd: Adam Blair has pushed out to the right edge and is already looking more dangerous. Fulton is at tight forward.
Wests Tigers with the momentum.
35th: TRY to Wests Tigers! Benji Marshall flies through to touch down a Robbie Farah grubber under the posts.
Possession told, although the Wests Tigers don't look as sharp as they did against the Eels last weekend.
39th: Marshall rolls another grubber into the in-goal. Another repeat set.
We're back underway as the Roosters kick off.
Lawrence won't be back, rested as a precaution. Reddy replaces him.
Tedesco is on at fullback for Moltzen.
45th: Wests Tigers successfully defended two sets in a row from Roosters. Solid looking scramble this year from Wests Tigers.
48th: Koroibete looking strong with some great runs.
49th: Tedesco almost claims a bomb above Minichiello, but knocks on.
50th: Ayshford gets his head in the wrong position making a tackle and takes a hard knock. He'll be replaced by Taqele Naiyaravoro, who scored two trys in NSW Cup.
52nd: TRY. Maloney dummies his way through and sends Daniel Mortimer flying under the posts.
56th: Repeat set after Koroibete forces Minichiello to bat Farah's grubber dead.
59th: Wests Tigers losing their way a little in attack with both centres off the field.
61st: TRY to the Roosters. Well call us prophetic, but a mix up in the Wests Tigers centres leads to a turn over and a try to Michael Jennings.
The loose ball was toed into the in-goal, and Jennings won the race to touch down.
65th: Many of the second string players are now entering the fray for both sides. Error rate increasing.
67th: TRY. Aidan Guerra carves through some poor defence on the Wests Tigers' right side.
Captain Robbie Farah has been replaced by Masada Iosefa.
73rd: Koroibete shows us why he's going to light up the NRL this season with a lighting run down the sideline. Wests Tigers turn the ball over to end the set.
75th: TRY to Wests Tigers. James Tedesco rolls it into the in-goal out wide on the left for centre Joel Reddy to claim the Wests Tigers' second try of the night.
78th: Koroibete with another brilliant run out of his own 10m. Very exciting player.
79th: Utai latches onto a perfectly weighted chip from Marshall to round out the last preseason game for both clubs.
Marshall converts leaving the final score 28-10 to the Roosters at Allianz Stadium.
