History beckons for Wests Tigers’ NYC side this week as they look to achieve the longest ever winning streak in the Club’s history this coming Friday night.

Having extended their winning streak to seven in a row with a strong win over the Penrith Panthers, Andrew Webster’s side now stand on the verge of writing their name into the history books against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.

It’s been an impressive run by the young Wests Tigers, but they’ll know that the result isn’t guaranteed this Friday night, as they battle both the short turnaround from Sunday’s game as well as a hostile Brookvale Oval crowd on Friday night.

Can the boys make it eight wins in a row this Friday night, or will the hosts be too strong in the end? Read on for a full preview of the match including all the key details, team news, statistics, exclusive insights and more.

Coach’s Comment

“Getting over there on a Friday night to Brookvale with traffic isn’t easy, and Manly have started to hit some good form too. I think they’ve had three wins and a draw from their last four starts so they’re finding some form themselves. It’s important that we celebrate milestones of potentially making it eight wins in a row, but if we think about that and not the process of actually winning the game, then we’re going to be carried away. I hope we get the win and make history, in a way, but it’s more about the two points then anything else. I don’t want us getting carried away in the wrong way…” (Andrew Webster, NYC Coach)
