Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary says his side have enjoyed the long preparation afford to them as they take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

The 10-day turnaround from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon is the longest break in the regular competition, and for Cleary, it's been a helpful one as the side prepares to bounce back this week.

"It's been a long break, so a little bit of time off and a weekend was nice for us," he said.

"It's been a really positive week and the boys have trained well so we're definitely looking forward to it.

"The Bulldogs are really competitive each week, they're a great club.

"We're definitely in for a tough game tomorrow.

"The competition is like that — anyone can beat anyone on their day, that's just how it is," he added.

"You've got to turn up each week and deliver your best, and if you can do that, you'll give yourself a chance to win — that's the way we look at it.

"We're prepared well so we're pretty confident we'll turn up tomorrow and play well.

"We expect every teams best each week, but the focus is always on us delivering our best."
