Last Time We Met | Wests Tigers

The Last Time We Met the Wests Tigers was an eventful mid-season clash where a nail-biting finish was on the cards at Allianz Stadium.

There was plenty of intrigue heading into the clash as the Roosters were without a number of their star players due to the first State Of Origin game. 

In their place, Matt Ikuvalu was on debut and Daniel Tupou was making his return from a torn pec. 

Tupou was outstanding in his return game, scoring both tries for the Roosters and saving one that could have lost them the game at the buzzer. 

The game concluded with a spectacular defensive effort from the Sydney Roosters squad, holding out the Wests Tigers last ditch efforts and claiming a hard fought win during the Origin period. 

The Sydney Roosters are offering a special $80 Super Saver Family Deal in Round 8.

It includes 4 hotdogs, 4 hot chips, 4 waters and 4 tickets to the game!
