Tigers vs Knights Tips & Betting Preview

The Wests Tigers host the Newcastle Knights in Sydney in one of the most unlikely top-four clashes you'll see this season.

The Tigers kicked off the season with a strong 10 point win over the Dragons on the road and will be looking to go back-to-back . 

The Knights hit the ground running to start season 2020, keeping the Warriors scoreless in a flawless display.

The West Tigers will be confident following their opening round win but the Knights look to be the real deal in 2020 and should be too powerful on Sunday.
