The Wests Tigers will take on the St. George Illawarra Dragons in a National Rugby League game on Sunday, March 9.
The match is set for the ANZ Stadium with a 3 p.m. local kick-off time.
The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sport 2 and delayed on Channel 9 and Fox Sports 1. It will also be available via live stream on the NRL’s official subscription service.
The Dragons have instituted a number of changes, replacing the injured Josh Dugan at No. 1 with Adam Quinlan; replacing Sam Williams with Michael Witt after a competition; and starting Dylan Farrell in the centres. In addition, Gerard Beale returns from his long-term knee injury.
Tigers Coach Mick Potter has put four new recruits–Cory Paterson, Marty Taupau, Keith Lulia and James Gavet–in his 17, reported AU.com.
Both teams finished far from the top last year and are looking for a much better season this time around.
The Tigers enjoyed a better preseason and are not dealing with any injuries as severe as Dugan’s, therefore they are predicted to win.
