Wests Tigers look to make it three wins from three to begin the 2019 season when they face the struggling Canterbury Bulldogs in NRL Round 3 action on Sunday.
The Tigers have never won their first three games of the season since becoming a joint-venture – can Michael Maguire’s troops make club history when they meet the last-placed Bulldogs on Sunday?
It’s been a dream start to the season for the Tigers, with Benji Marshall and Robbie Farah winding back the clock and producing some vintage form to lead the side to impressive victories over the Sea Eagles and Warriors in the opening two rounds.
Maguire has added some much-needed steel to the team without eliminating their natural flair – and so far, the appointment of the former premiership winning coach has been a perfect fit.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about the Bulldogs. The club has been left in shambles for the last couple of years now, and Dean Pay is the man tasked with guiding Canterbury through this rebuilding phase.
The Bulldogs have really struggled in attack over the last few years, but worryingly, it’s their defence that’s an obvious weakness so far this season, with the Dogs conceding 76 points across their first two defeats to the Warriors and Eels – two teams that aren’t exactly world beaters either.
While Maguire has understandably opted to keep the same 17 that dispatched the Warriors, Pay has wielded the axe, dropping Christian Chrichton, Raymond Faitala-Mariner, Marcelo Montoya and Sauaso Sue, with Nick Meaney, Corey Harawira Naera, Jayden Okunbor, Rhyse Martin, Chris Smith and Ofahiki Ogden the new faces coming into the side.
The Tigers have won two of their last three meetings, while Canterbury won their last clash 16-4 in Round 20 of the 2018 season. However, I don’t think those games matter much in the context of this encounter – the Dogs have been woeful and are fielding an extremely inexperienced team in a bid to change their fortunes, while the Tigers are flying high, confident and playing some tremendous football. I can see only one winner on Sunday.
