Match Preview: NRL Round 9
Wests Tigers will look to bounce back from a last start defeat against the Gold Coast Titans when they take on the Sydney Roosters at Allianz Stadium for their Round 9 match.
The joint-venture Club have endured much of an up-and-down start to the year so far, but with strong wins against big-name teams in South Sydney Rabbitohs, Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles and North Queensland Cowboys, Wests Tigers will still certainly fancy their chances at snaring the two competition points on offer against the defending premiers.
Can Wests Tigers bounce back and consolidate on their top-four standing, or will the competition favourites extend their winning streak to three in a row?
Read on for a full preview of the match including all the key details, live stream and TV information as well as full match analysis and insights.
