Match Day Information: Round 23
Wests Tigers will take on the Sydney Roosters today in their Round 23 clash at Leichhardt Oval, in a do-or-die match to keep their 2014 finals hopes alive.
Having suffered a 30-6 defeat to the Sydney Roosters when the two teams met in Round 9, Wests Tigers will be keen to bounce back with a strong performance this week, and also erase a tough last start defeat to the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville.
Robbie Farah will lead the side out tonight despite struggling with sickness throughout the week, and will no doubt be determined to snare the two points on offer.
Chris Lawrence will also play his 150th first-grade match — all for Wests Tigers.
Wests Tigers encourage all fans and Members to get to the ground and support the boys against the defending premiers as they seek to keep their finals hopes alive.
