Wests Tigers v Knights preview: round 7

For a team with a 5-1 record (which could’ve easily been 6-0), the Tigers will start favourites for just the second time this season.

It’s amazing what a strong culture and coach can do for a club, even in a so-called rebuilding year. The Tigers were supposed to hover around the bottom of the ladder all season, yet here we are after six rounds wondering if they might actually be a top four contender.

The Knights (3-3) had high hopes against Melbourne last week but were comprehensively beaten 40-14. Coach Nathan Brown will be analysing the Tigers’ performances to see if he can find any chinks for his side to exploit.
