Wests Tigers Coach Jason Taylor spoke to Big Sports Breakfast as his team heads into the bye this weekend on the back of three wins from their last four matches.

Set to move even further up the ladder this weekend with a guaranteed two points, Taylor spoke about the pleasing form his side has displayed lately and what he hoped to see from the team ahead of their "biggest game of the season" next Sunday against the Storm.

"We’ve built a bit of momentum over the last six games," Taylor said.

We’d like to keep that rolling, and we’ve got a few guys who need a rest, so it’s a good time to get the bye. We’re pretty happy with what we’ve done over the last few weeks and the challenge is to keep improving. It’s not a matter of saying that’s good enough and we hang on to that; we need to keep improving because there’s more there.

"It takes time to get everything on track, but we’re getting there.

"The game against the Broncos was a big one for us with the way we played, the style of footy that we played and the control that we showed against a well-coached side.

"We’re learning how to play that grinding tough style and when we put some our skill on top of that, it’ll make us hard to beat if we can do that week in and week out.

"Melbourne is a great test and we’re really looking forward to it," he said.

"The fact that we’ve got pretty much two weeks to prepare for that is good. It’s been a great opportunity to get some hard work done but also to give the guys a rest too.

"They’ll come in next Monday really fresh and building up for what will be our biggest game of the year against Melbourne in Melbourne."
