THE DETAILS

Starting the year at home

The Wests Tigers are the only team which will play their first three matches at home in 2019 — Leichhardt Oval clashes with Manly and Canterbury either side of a round-two tussle with the Warriors at Campbelltown. They remain in Sydney as well for round four when they head to Penrith.

Toughest stretch

Rounds 7-11, where they face the Titans (H), Roosters (A), Panthers (H), Storm (A) and Rabbitohs (A). By the time the Wests Tigers hit their round-12 bye they should have a pretty good idea of their potential finals credentials.  The bye will probably be welcome after a five-week stretch that includes trips to Tamworth, Brisbane and Melbourne as well as four straight games against 2018 top-eight sides — including both grand final teams as well as the Rabbitohs, who made the final four.

One more thing

Wests Tigers are locked in for four home games at Western Sydney Stadium, replacing the four home games they played at ANZ Stadium last season. Campbelltown Stadium and Leichhardt Oval (three each) and Scully Park at Tamworth (one game) have the same allotment as last season. The remaining home game will be played at Suncorp for Magic Round in 2019 rather than in Auckland.
