Wests know it’s time to shine against the Tigers

FRUSTRATED by a lack of results against the top teams, Western Suburbs is aiming to change that this weekend.

Taking on the Across The Waves Tigers tomorrow in the Bundaberg Rugby League, the Panthers will be looking for their first win this season against the Antonio Kaufusi-led outfit.

With both teams on the same amount of points in the competition, as both fight for the top two, this game becomes important in shaping up the finals picture.

Coach Nathan Tanner said the time for talking was over for his club.

“It’s time that we stood up,” he said.

“If we are going to be a threat this season, these are the games we need to win.”

With almost a full strength squad to choose from as well the Panthers know they need to make it count.

“We all had a week off with the bye and a great training run this week,” he said.

“The team needs to take the initiative and do the one percenters right to win.”

“We’re a good enough side to do this.”

For the Tigers they will be looking to bounce back after losing to Past Brothers two weeks ago.

The game today starts at 3pm at Salter Oval and will follow the Isis Devils and Hervey Bay match at 1.15pm.

Hervey Bay is aiming for their 12th straight win.
