Wests Tigers v Warriors
Leichhardt Oval
Friday, 7.45pm
Just when the Wests Tigers’ supporters thought 2013 was bad enough – after a seven-game losing streak in the middle of the season and an injury list long enough to fill Concord Hospital – things suddenly just got much worse.

Earlier this week, the greatest Wests Tiger of all-time, Benji Marshall, revealed to the rugby league world he wants out. And now we’re waiting to see how the aftershock of Benji’s decision affects the club.

The Tigers had been warming to the task of challenging for the semi-finals, winning four of their past six matches (including a 22-4 victory against the Storm) after a terrible start to the season. They’re still a slim chance of qualifying, sitting on 16 competition points – just two wins out of the top eight at present – but they didn’t need this extra (major) distraction.

The Warriors, meanwhile, have endured a similar season this year – although their biggest star hasn’t recently revealed a desire to leave the club and sport altogether.

Just like the Tigers, the Warriors started 2013 under their new coach poorly, and slowly but surely their results are improving. In the past six weeks, in fact, they’ve beaten the Roosters (23-12) and Sea Eagles (18-16). A win here puts them on 20 competition points – a figure currently shared by teams placed sixth to 10th – and well within finals striking distance.

For both sides, this is a crucial match. If they’re to feature in this year’s finals series, they can’t afford to lose touch with the top sides – and a defeat here will surely do that.

For the Tigers, their side remains unchanged after their close loss to the Sharks a fortnight ago. Both Aaron Woods and Robbie Farah have been named to back up from Origin, while powerful prop Keith Galloway is nearing ‘fit’ status and is expected to play against Manly next week.
