THE PREDICTION

The Eels are coming off a comprehensive win over the Knights and they now welcome a West Tigers team who they have beaten in their last six meetings. There is likely to be some late decisions over their team selection due to question marks over the fitness of Junior Paulo and Joey Lussick, but they will still be confident against the Tigers. Despite just winning five of their 13 games so far, the Tigers are in their best form of the season having won three of their last four. Their 26-6 win last time out to inflict the first defeat of the campaign on the Penrith Panthers will have given them a major boost in confidence as they face the Eels. That said, this is another tough assignment and the Eels have to be favoured.
