Keith Galloway v Willie Mason
After making his NRL debut back in 2003 with the Cronulla Sharks as a 17-year-old, Keith Galloway will take the field for his 200th match tomorrow night at Brookvale Oval. The Yarrawarrah Tigers junior has played 37 games for the Sharks and 162 games for Wests Tigers
Willie Mason joined the sixth NRL Club of his career ahead of the 2015 season and the 35-year-old is once again off-contract for next year. Mason was quiet by his standards in Manly-Warringah’s last outing against Brisbane, making just 33 metres in a 35-minute stint.
It looks set to be a classic encounter between two veteran props tomorrow night, with Galloway and Mason two of the game's cult-figures. Look out for a fiery encounter as both look to establish their dominance in the middle.
Career Head-to-Head clashes: Played 8 – Galloway 4, Mason 4 (NRL games only)
NRL Fantasy Prices: Galloway $237,000 (Season: +$11,000; Average: 33.1), Mason $207,000 (Season: -$69,000; Average: 28.4)
Martin Taupau v Dunamis Lui
Martin Taupau played one of the best games of his NRL career last week against South Sydney - scoring two tries, making 139 metres, 23 tackles and two line-breaks. It’s hard to believe that the New Zealand International has played just 58 NRL games.
Dunamis Lui looks to have found a home in Manly-Warringah colours since joining the Club at the start of 2014 from Brisbane. The Samoan International has played all 12 matches for the Sea Eagles this season with his game time varying from 20 minutes to as high as 60.
Expect a physical battle at Brookvale tomorrow night with the ‘Taupau v Lui’ battle headlining the encounter. With Aaron Woods set to be back on deck, Wests Tigers will field an imposing forward pack including the in-form Taupau who has made over 260 metres in the past fortnight.
Career Head-to-Head clashes: Played 2 – Taupau 1, Lui 1
NRL Fantasy Prices: Taupau $358,000 (Season: +$64,000; Average: 49.5), Lui $214,000 (Season: +$10,000; Average: 27.4)
Mitchell Moses v Keiran Foran
Mitchell Moses will be out to help break a 12-year drought for the Club at Brookvale Oval tomorrow night. The Carlingford junior and prop forward Aaron Woods, are the only Wests Tigers' players in the starting side yet to score a try in 2015.
After being hampered with injury throughout this season, Keiran Foran will play just his seventh game of the year alongside Daly Cherry-Evans; provided the Queenslander backs up from Origin. Foran will no doubt be keen to finish his final season in Sea Eagles colours strong, with the Kiwi playmaker set to join Parramatta in 2016.
Young guns Moses and Luke Brooks come up against the experienced combination of Foran and Cherry-Evans for the first time in a halves match-up. In Moses’ only previous clash with Manly-Warringah, he played fullback in a 40-8 loss at Brookvale.
Career Head-to-Head clashes: Played 1 – Moses 0, Foran 1
NRL Fantasy Prices: Moses $274,000 (Season: +$105,000; Average: 30.1), Foran $284,000 (Season: -$8,000; Average: 34.7)
