Wests Tigers will travel to Moreton Daily Stadium in Redcliffe to face Penrith on Sunday as they aim to make it a perfect two wins from two matches against the Panthers in 2021.

Following an impressive 26-6 win at Leichhardt Oval in Round 13, Wests Tigers will be aiming for back-to-back wins against the Mountain Men for the first time since 2013. 

Although Wests Tigers finals hopes have faded, Michael Maguire's men will be hoping to finish the season on a high as they face the Panthers and Bulldogs in the final two rounds. 

The last two games will give a number of younger players an opportunity to shine as they prove themselves before the end of the season.

Fresh from re-signing for another season, prop Thomas Mikaele will be eager for a big performance as he is set to the side after missing last week's game against Cronulla due to a one-week suspension. 

Hooker Jacob Liddle will also return to the team after missing Round 23 due to the same crusher tackle that saw him and Mikaele banned. 

The Panthers, who are still in the running for the minor premiership, can secure a top two finish with a win on Sunday; however Wests Tigers will be hoping to spoil the party.
