    Thought tipping was going to be easier last week but still ended up with 4/8 haha!

    I am really looking forward to the Double Header on Saturday.

    The Storm will want to get one back on the Tigers after what happened in Round 2.

    The Cowboys have lost 3 in a row and will be looking to turn it around quickly.

    We are coming up against a desperate cowboys side this week, they have lost the last 3 in a row..... very hard to see them losing 4 in a row but hey, Ill be honest, when Johnson was ruled out on the weekend I changed my tip to the Roosters and we all know how that panned out!

    YTB! Hope they can produce another upset this weekend!!!

    Is the double header going to be a sell out. 10 of us coming up from chch for it. Can’t wait.

    Warriors CEO said they're expecting 25,000 and a potential sellout.

    Will be a great event!

    Interesting market with Warriors 1.95 outsiders to Cows 1.85. Only thing they really have going for them stats wise is they've lost their last 3.

    matches at venue:
    Played 19; Warriors 13 wins; Cowboys 6 wins

    This season -

    Points per game: Warriors 25.5; Cowboys 17

    Points conceded per game: Warriors 13.3; Cowboys 25.3

    You are going to find it hard getting 10 seats together unless you are in the North or South Stand. If you haven't already then get onto it quick with those tickets...

    There was talk about any seats allocated to Storm and Tigers fans that weren’t sold being opened up to the general public later this week - personally, I wouldn’t take the risk and wait to see if that happens.

    Sorry I didn’t word that very well. We have already purchased tickets. Was just wondering if it was going to be full.

    Geez, I really hadn't been paying too much attention to the draw.
    This is the most exciting 6 weeks of football coming up;
    Round 5 vs Cowboys (home)
    Round 6 vs Broncos (home)
    Round 7 vs Dragons (home)
    Round 8 vs Storm (away)
    Round 9 vs Wigers (home)
    Round 10 vs Roosters (home)

    Benji Marshall recaps Wests Tigers' winning performance with baby son Fox


    Benji Marshall is used to the occasional post-match debrief with Fox, but this time it's a bit different.

    The former Kiwis playmaker conducted his latest "after match report" with his infant son, Fox, rather than broadcaster Fox Sports.

    His young son looks mesmerised by the camera throughout the one-minute talk about the Wests Tigers' 30-6 win over the Parramatta Eels, but does laugh when his dad suggests he has "worked hard over the last 12 months and in preseason" to try and close out tight games.

    The video ends with Fox appearing to fall into a south paw boxing stance, which could be a sign for his future sporting prospects.

    Marshall did say the Tigers would have liked to have finished better in their last match, but he's excited to be crossing the ditch to play the unbeaten Warriors this weekend.

    Plenty of South Island fans down here mate, your wall won't stop us escaping from Auckland after the game.
    I spose you're sending us the bill for that too.
