It was shaping as a tough weekend of results for Wests Tigers before the club's NRL side produced a stunning upset to down the high-flying St. George-Illawarra Dragons at home to end the round on a high for the club.
Heavy defeats for the Intrust Super Premiership and Jersey Flegg sides against Mounties on Saturday dampened the mood somewhat, but the return to form for Ivan Cleary's side certainly lifted the spirits once again — keeping the team in touch with the top eight with just seven rounds of the regular season to play.
Wests Tigers will take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 19 in what will be Robbie Farah's 250th game for the club, with the Men's and Women's Touch Football teams both featuring prior to kickoff.
The Intrust Super Premiership and Jersey Flegg sides are both on the road — taking on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Belmore Sports Ground at 1:00pm and 3:00pm respectively on Saturday.
