This game will not live up to the standards set by these two teams in 2009, neither will it be of the same calibre as that memorable round 24 match last year. Now that we have established this, I'll still be watching because Jarryd Hayne and Benji Marshall are playing. Add to that the renaissance that is Lote Tiquri's career and it will be good fun, high scoring and the winner decided in the last 10 minutes.
This means we will go with the Tigers to bounce back from last week's defensive nightmare that must have had Tim Sheens reaching for the valium. Tim Moltzen to outplay Daniel Mortimer in the halves and Jarryd Hayne will have one of those moments that leaves us all astonished.
