This Sunday at 3pm (AEST), Leichhardt Oval will see a spectacular match up in rugby league when the Wests Tigers take on the Panthers.

Tigers vs. Panthers – These Are No Pussy Cats

Get ready for what is being called “The Game of the Round” when the Tigers take on the Panthers this Sunday.

The Panthers were on a five game winning streak until they were defeated by the Warriors last week in New Zealand.

This game led Coach Ivan Cleary to make a change to his squad and as a result, wing Kevin Naiqama has now been replaced by Isaah Yeo.

Tigers Coach, Mick Potter, has decided to keep Blake Austin in the No.1 jersey after his sterling performance for filling in for injured James Tedesco in their 19-18 win over the Raiders last Saturday.

 

Other changes on the field include, Keith Lulia coming in for Tim Simona and Joel Luani replacing Robbie Farah. New faces on the bench also include Dene Halatau, Sitaleki Akauola and Jack Buchanan.

So what are the odds on this game? Bookies are offering Wests Tigers (+9.5) 10/11 and Penrith Panthers (-9.5) 10/11.
