    Hard to pick...would be very rewarding to see the Tigpies continue their little run.

    Wests Tigers v Sea Eagles: Schick Preview

    From NRL.com
    [​IMG]


    Schick Hydro Preview: Wests Tigers v Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles
    Leichhardt Oval
    Monday 7pm

    Most punters expected the Sea Eagles to click straight away. Why wouldn't they? Nate Myles, Martin Taupau, Lewis Brown and Jake Trbojevic sure make up a handy forward pack especially when Daly Cherry-Evans is leading them around.

    Few anticipated the sluggish start to their campaign, after the kicked off the year with a 28-6 loss to the Bulldogs at Brookvale Oval.

    On the flip side the Wests Tigers were one of the highlights of Round 1. Led by Mitch Moses and James Tedesco last year's cellar-dwellers looked a completely different outfit after sinking the Warriors by eight points.

    The Tigers welcome back Luke Brooks and Dene Halatau from suspension in place of Jack Littlejohn and Jack Buchanan, who return to NSW Cup.

    Manly coach Trent Barrett meanwhile has reshuffled his forwards to allow for the NRL return of Josh Starling and Brenton Lawrence who replace Blake Leary and Darcy Lussick.


    Watch out Tigers: Taupau's return to Leichhardt Oval could prove an important one. With Barrett shifting the Kiwis representative to the back row the rookie mentor is undoubtedly looking to utilise the explosiveness in Taupau's game we have come to know and love. In saying that, the Tigers will be looking to make their former teammate's return as unmemorable as possible.

    Watch out Sea Eagles: Brooks's return should only expand the Tigers' attack. Coach Jason Taylor opted against using Manaia Cherrington for 80 minutes last week meaning Littlejohn spent time at hooker and Chris Lawrence ended up in the halves. Brooks should only complement Moses as the Tigers look to take their free-flowing attack up a few notches.

    Key Match-Up: Mitch Moses v Dylan Walker – Walker's nervy start for the Sea Eagles last week did his team no favours but given time the former Rabbitohs centre should slowly develop in the role. Walker's lack of experience impacted Cherry-Evans's performance against the Bulldogs which is something he'll be mindful of. Moses however had no such troubles as he guided the Tigers to a huge first-half lead by producing two try assists. Walker could learn a few things from his opposite man on Monday night.

    The History: Played 22; Wests Tigers 8, Sea Eagles 14. The Sea Eagles have won six of their past eight against the Tigers dating back to 2010. They only played once last year, in Round 15, when the Sea Eagles emerged 10-point victors. They will be hoping they can produce a similar result to secure their maiden 2016 win.

    What are the Odds: The Tigers opened at a huge $3.20 but that was snapped up as soon as they knocked off the Warriors in Round 1. The money is running four-to-one in favour of a Tigers upset. Their price is expected to shorten even further as we get closer to kick-off.

    Match Officials: Referee: Henry Perenara. Assistant Referee: Chris James. Sideline Officials: Jeff Younis and Tim Roby.

    Televised: Fox Sports 1 (Live) – coverage from 6.30pm AEDT.

    The way we see it: It could be another week of development for the Sea Eagles as they continue to build. Cherry-Evans looked sharp in Round 1 but it means nothing if his teammates don't provide options for him to utilise. The Tigers' return to Leichhardt should continue aid their early-season form. Wests Tigers by 8.

    Long passes from Brooks and Moses wreaking havoc.

    Tigpies crowd loud and spurring on their team, standing room only.....(doesn't take much to shut them up though)

    26-16 to the locals.

    May well be a sign - youth over age.

    Moving the captaincy from Farah to Woods hasn't hurt either.

    The Tigers played very well and are a much better side then I thought they would be given the infighting and player issues at the club.
    They thoroughly deserved their win over an improved sea eagles. The round was not a total loss and its always nice to see Manly lose:bag:

    There's more of that to come. Trent Barrett is going to be learning the head coaching role on-the-job. God only knows how long that will take.

    Just finished watching this. Wonderful stuff from Brooks, Moses, and Tedesco. Isn't this just why we love the game? After seeing my team look so depressingly toothless in attack last night it was a salutary from the Tigers' young play-makers on how to open up defences. And Manly, although they have their issues, haven't turned into a bad team overnight. They'll be OK.

    Correct. That happened during the off-season, the instant that clown Trent Barrett was crowned head coach. More pain on the way for the winless Silver Tails, although they might just snag a round 4 win against the god-awful Chooks.

    Cant wait for the slap- a- thon between Browneye and Barrett. The Knights showed some form against the Raiders so its up to the silvertails to get their game together.
