The Tigers are a confidence team and running high on it at the moment. The Bulldogs, on the other hand, are running high on the stench of failure as their season goes from bad to worse. Cries from the Bulldogs camp this week sound optimistic, which is a good sign for this match and suggests the Dogs will play with desperation. That might be enough to get the win against a rejuvenated Tigers outfit, but only if this match turns into a grind.
Difficult to see Robert Lui and Benji Marshall allowing that to happen. In the Tigers' last two matches, they have combined well to organise a potent attack which should continue on Friday night but they will face a tough test with Kimmorley and Ennis attempting to slow the pace down to a standstill. This week the Jamal Idris show visits Chris Lawrence in another fantastic matchup starring the Dogs tearaway young centre. Also, keep an eye on Ennis v Farah as their rivalry continues.
My Man of the Match Prediction: Robbie Farah
My Tip: Tigers 28-18
