Wests Tigers Holden Cup side will face the North Queensland Cowboys in Week Two of the finals series after a dominant victory in their Elimination Final on Sunday.
Willie Peters' side were far too good for the Parramatta Eels at Allianz Stadium — running out comprehensive 54-24 winners — and will now face the North Queensland Cowboys at 1300 SMILES Stadium on Friday night, with the winner going through to the Semi Finals.
The winner of that game will go on to face the Penrith Panthers in the Semi Finals.
