Wests Tigers vs Warriors Preview and Prediction

Finals chances are looking increasingly slim for both the Tigers and Warriors as they prepare to do battle on Friday night at Suncorp.

The Warriors are on a seven-match losing streak and have slipped to 14th spot on the ladder with just 12 points, while the Tigers are four points adrift of the top eight in 12th position having won just one of their last five.

It’s been a tough season for the Warriors and it’s only gotten worse over the last week, with the club suffering a crushing 60-22 defeat to the Rabbitohs before star player Roger Tuivasa-Sheck announced he was departing the club effective immediately.

With halfback Chad Townsend out injured and repeated disruptions to go with their big losing run, it’s not looking good for the Warriors right now.

Meanwhile, the Tigers have done a decent job of bouncing back from big defeats to the Eels and Storm, pushing the Rabbitohs, defeating the Broncos and putting in a respectable showing against an in-form Manly side.

Michael Maguire’s side are still in with an outside chance of making the eight, but this is an absolute must-win clash.

VERDICT:

This is as unpredictable as they come, with the Tigers and Warriors two of the most erratic teams in the competition.

That being said, there’s certainly more upside to the Tigers at the moment – they’ve been solid over the last few weeks and are enjoying their new surroundings of Suncorp Stadium, winning four of their last six matches at the venue.

The Warriors have lost their last seven matches and things don’t look like turning around, so the Tigers are poised to come away with the two points on Friday night (Best Tigers -6 line odds $2.00 with Ladbrokes).
