After going off with concussion last week, Wests Tigers vice-captain Dene Halatau says he's confident of being right this weekend against the Penrith Panthers.

Halatau was forced to miss the majority of the match after suffering a concussion early in the first half against the Melbourne Storm, but is on track for Saturday's game against the Penrith Panthers, which will also feature as the Club's Legends Day at ANZ Stadium.

"I pulled up okay," Dene said. "I did the test yesterday and did that well, so I feel pretty good and should be good to go for this weekend. I've got to get through the week — we've only had a light session so far — but the medical staff have been really positive and I should be good to go for the weekend."

Despite missing the majority of the match that saw his side come roaring back from 26-0 down to trail 26-20 late in the match, Halatau said there was plenty of confidence to be gained from the result heading into this week's match.

"That first half was fairly disappointing for us," Halatau conceded.

"We didn't have much ball and that was down to us making a lot of mistakes.

"I think the way we bounced back from being on the wrong end of a pretty hefty scoreline to one of the best teams in the competition, I think that's a positive.

"When we were behind like that earlier in the year it went worse for us in the second half, so the resilience of the boys to fight back and keep going was really pleasing."
