Wests Tigers head to the Sydney Cricket Ground for the first time since 2013 as they take on the Sydney Roosters this week.
Michael Maguire's side did it in the hard way in Round 7 as they came from behind to down the Gold Coast Titans 30-14 in Tamworth, but it was an important two points nonetheless for the side as they jumped back in to the top eight.
They'll come up against a red-hot Roosters outfit this week, after Trent Robinson's side made it four wins in a row with their ANZAC Day win over the Dragons.
