Balmain Ryde-Eastwood Tigers Vs Mounties
Leichhardt Oval, Saturday, March 31
Referee: Rob Bowen
Summary: Two sides face off here that are both coming off wins in Round Four. Mounties travelled to Toyota Stadium and held off a fast finishing Sharks side while the Tigers headed up to Cessnock and were probably more impressive than the one point margin may indicate. Mounties currently sit third on the ladder following two wins, a bye and a loss through four rounds, and some may argue that they should have won their opening week encounter with the Dogs at Belmore. Meanwhile the Tigers had not had the best of starts to the year, however a morale boosting win against the inform Knights may be just the tonic that spurs this side on to more victories. Mounties head into this fixture with a similar side to the one that defeated the Sharks, with the only real change of note being Drury Low
