Wests Tigers will look to bounce back from a last start defeat and keep their finals hopes alive for 2018 when they take on the Newcastle Knights at home this Friday.
After succumbing to a last-second loss to the Knights when they met back in Round 7, the ninth-placed Wests Tigers will be desperate for the two points on offer as they seek to narrow the gap to the top eight.
Having lost their last six Friday night games, Wests Tigers fans will be hoping the 6:00pm kickoff brings a different turn of luck this weekend — Wests Tigers are yet to play in the early Friday game, while the Novacastrians will incredibly play their seventh 6:00pm Friday game of the 2018 season so far.
