It was a positive weekend of results for Wests Tigers in Round 15 as the club's NRL, Jersey Flegg and Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership side all secured last-minute wins.
A Michael Chee Kam try on Thursday night proved to be a match winner for Michael Maguire's side against the South Sydney Rabbitohs, with back-to-back wins now placing the NRL side on the edge of the top eight ahead of this week's game.
After a mid-season resurgence, Wests Tigers senior women's side continued their good form on Sunday with an upset 18-10 win over the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Having now won three straight games to sit in fifth position, Wests Tigers can now secure a finals berth for the first time with a win over the Bulldogs this weekend.
The club's Canterbury Cup boys battled bravely against a strong Rabbitohs side but were unable to get there in the end, with the visitors running out 34-16 winners.
However, the club's Jersey Flegg side would ensure it would finish as a positive weekend overall with a strong return to form as they fought back from a half-time deficit to emerge with a 38-24 win over the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Wests Tigers will return home to Bankwest Stadium on Friday to face the Sydney Roosters in a blockbuster clash before the the Canterbury Cup and Harvey Norman Women's teams feature at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Sunday.
The club's Jersey Flegg team have the bye.
Sing the team song with the boys!
