SYDNEY, Aug 20 AAP - Preview of NRL Round 24 match between Canterbury and Wests Tigers.

Thursday, August 21

Canterbury v Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium, 7.45pm (AEST)

Head to Head: Bulldogs 16 Tigers 10

Last clash: Round 18 2014 - Tigers 46 bt Bulldogs 18 at ANZ Stadium

Tab Sportsbet: Bulldogs $1.18 Tigers $5.50

FootyTAB: Tigers +15.5

A season that started with such promise for the Tigers has been cruelled by injuries to eight top-line players with coach Mick Potter admitting last Saturday after his side's 48-4 loss to the Sydney Roosters that he was struggling to field a side. The Bulldogs were fortunate to hold out Parramatta last Friday to end a run of four straight losses to get their season back on track and should prove too strong for a Tigers side that looks shot.

Key: Robbie Farah. The Tigers' skipper has had a difficult month or so but no player takes defeat as bad as the NSW vice-captain. He will be up for resuming his long-running rivalry with opposite number Michael Ennis and causing another boilover.

Tip: Bulldogs
