Wests Tigers will look to get back on track when they run out at Leichhardt Oval for the first time this season to take on the North Queensland Cowboys.
Off the back of three straight defeats, Ivan Cleary's side will be desperate to bounce back against the improving Cowboys and will certainly be boosted by the voracious Leichhardt Oval crowd behind them.
Kicking off the NRL's Indigenous Round with the club's first ever Thursday night game, there's plenty happening around the ground on the night so this is definitely a game not to be missed!
