With just two games to play before the start of the finals series, Wests Tigers will be determined to bounce back against the Magpies and move in to the top four.

Wests Tigers international signing Raecene McGregor said Monday's game would be an important one for the side to build on their confidence leading in to the finals.

“We’re training hard to secure results in these last two2 rounds and our eyes are set on performing well and earning a spot in the finals,” said McGregor.

“We've addressed things at training that we need to work on coming into the Wenty game and I believe that we are switched on and ready to go."

The club is very passionate about women's rugby league which makes it a pleasure to be a part of.

A regular player in last season's team, Rachel Simpson also makes a return to the starting side this week after coming back from injury last weekend.
