Match Day Information: NRL Round 17
Wests Tigers will look to extend their recent winning streak over the Penrith Panthers when the two sides meet this Sunday, July 6 at Leichhardt Oval from 3:00pm.
The hosts have won their past seven encounters against the Panthers and boast an impressive record at the suburban ground — winning 14 of their past 19 matches — but they'll know that those numbers won't be enough to get the job done this weekend.
Playing without their Origin stars and fullback James Tedesco due to injury, Wests Tigers will need a big crowd on the day to help lift them over the line, and urge all their fans and Members to get to the ground on Sunday and support the boys in all three grades.
