Wests Tigers v Western Lions at Western Lions Park, Townsville

The Tigers are the only Mackay team to make the trip outside of the region this weekend. Last season’s runners-up will take a bus to Townsville for the annual battle with their big cat rivals.

Lions won last year’s match 30-22 and the Tigers will not have the home field advantage this time.
