Tim Sheens has named an unchanged line up for this Saturday night's clash against the Dragons at Allianz Stadium.
After an exciting 51-26 win last night against the Eels, Wests Tigers will be looking for back to back wins to keep them in the top eight.
Young Fijian winger, Marika Koroibete, who equalled a Club record with four tries in yesterday's win, has been named on the left flank and will get another chance to impress.
Speaking after the game about Koroibete's performance, Gareth Ellis said that a "star was born tonight".
The mildly spoken Koroibete added that it was a fantastic experience.
"To score four tries was unbelievable. I couldn't dream of that happening in my second game", he continued.
Wests Tigers has the wood over the Dragons in matches played at Allianz Stadium. Of the five games played, Wests Tigers has won four including last year's 16-14 Round 22 win.
There will be plenty of family fun in the lead up to the match so bring the kids along and have a great night out. There will be face painting, a jumping castle and a DJ in the forecourt pumping out the tunes as spectators arrive. Kids tickets are just $5 (General Admission only) so see you there!
