It's shaping as a blockbuster Sunday afternoon at Leichhardt Oval when Wests Tigers take on the Gold Coast Titans in a crucial match prior to the Round 17 bye.
Currently sitting just outside the top eight, Wests Tigers will be desperate to bounce back from a heavy defeat in Round 16 as they take on a solid Titans outfit in a bid keep their finals hopes alive as a result.
Star signing Moses Mbye is in line to make his club debut, while Life Member Robbie Farah is set to return to the ground he grew up dreaming of playing on — two fascinating storylines to watch out for.
As the only Sunday afternoon game at the iconic suburban ground this season, it's shaping as a big game on and off the field for Wests Tigers this weekend and definitely not a game to miss out on!
