It's shaping as an absolute blockbuster this Saturday afternoon when Wests Tigers take on the St. George-Illawarra Dragons in a must-win game at Leichhardt Oval.
After four wins in their last five games, Ivan Cleary's have roared back in to contention for a finals berth for the first time since 2011 and could potentially be playing for a spot in the top eight this Saturday — depending on how the Brisbane Broncos fare against the second-placed Rabbitohs on Thursday night.
Having already toppled the Red V earlier this season, you definitely don't want to miss this pivotal contest as Wests Tigers look to close out the season in style from the club's Inner West suburban ground.
