Watch Free NRL Wests Tigers vs Canterbury Bulldogs Live Streaming National Rugby League 2017. Wests Tigers vs Canterbury Bulldogs match will be kick off at ANZ Stadium, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, Sunday 23 April 2017 online, Time 16:00 (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Nine, Fox Sports, FOX Sports 2 & FOX Soccer Plus,Premier Sports.
Chasing a fourth win on the bounce and looking to cement their spot in the top eight, the Bulldogs look to continue their recent dominance over the Tigers and claim another two points on Sunday at ANZ Stadium.
There’s plenty to look forward to in this ANZAC weekend clash. These two sides play completely opposite styles of rugby league – the Bulldogs’ game is built on defence, while the Tigers have the ability to pile on points with their unpredictable attack.
Add in the ongoing player movements surrounding both sides – Aaron Woods has reportedly already signed with the Bulldogs for 2018, while Ivan Cleary was also in Canterbury’s sights before Des Hasler re-signed for two more seasons and Cleary ended up at the Tigers in their troublesome head coaching role.
With all that in mind, it’s shaping as an entertaining afternoon of NRL on Sunday.
Canterbury come into this encounter full of confidence after three straight wins over the Broncos, Knights and Rabbitohs, with their 36-0 shellacking at the hands of Manly now resting in the distant past.
Still, the Bulldogs aren’t anywhere near their best, with Hasler continuing to experiment with his halves and hooker. Expect Matt Frawley to come onto the bench and play the final 50-60 minutes of the game, with Moses Mbye shifting to hooker and Michael Lichaa finishing the game on the bench – like the Souths game last week.
Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see how the Tigers respond after blowing a game-long lead against the Eels last week and losing James Tedesco and Woods over the last few days.
It’s a tough game to call. If the Tigers can run out to an early lead, the Bulldogs might not have enough points in them to chase them down. On the other hand, if the game remains close, Canterbury will be in the box seat and will have more class to shut the match down. I’ll play it safe and say the Bulldogs by 10.
