TEAMS WE PLAY TWICE
Rabbitohs, Panthers, Dragons, Cowboys, Eels, Sharks, Roosters, Titans, Sea Eagles
TEAMS WE PLAY ONCE
Raiders (A), Storm (H), Bulldogs (H), Broncos (A), Knights (A), Warriors (H)
It starts off with two Sydney games, the first against the Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium in the late Friday game of Round 1 followed by a visit from the Panthers to Campbelltown.
THE TOUGH RUN
Thankfully for Wests Tigers fans there's no real cluster of gruelling away trips or back-to-back games against heavyweights likes Melbourne, Brisbane and North Queensland all piled together. A visit from the Storm to Leichhardt in Round 4 is soon followed by a long trek to Townsville in Round 6 before backing it up in an Easter Monday showdown against the Eels in Round 7 which will provide an early tester for Jason Taylor's men.
That Easter Monday clash in Round 7 is sure to draw plenty of interest while the final regular season fixture will be against the Warriors at Leichhardt Oval. Given how entertaining meetings between those two clubs are, that will be a massive finish if both teams are still in finals contention at that stage.
STATE OF ORIGIN IMPACT
The Wests Tigers only have a Round 15 game with the likes of Aaron Woods and James Tedesco away on Blues duty and that comes against a Cronulla side likely to be missing some big guns of their own. The Club's bye rounds are in Round 12 and Round 18.
