Wests Tigers vs Newcastle Knights are playing in the 2nd round of the National Rugby League in Australia. Both teams started their season with a win, however their opponents were below average teams. To be fair, neither of Wests Tigers and Newcastle Knights are considered as good quality teams.
Last season, Newcastle Knights had another dissapointing season, finishing the league on 11th place with only 22 points won. Wests Tigers were not really much better since they finished 2 positions above them, with 24 points. However what is important for me is that, Wests Tigers managed to win both games vs Newcastle Knights, especially at home in very dominant fashion.
Newcastle Knights are expected to have another similar season this year, because they are preety much the same squad from last year. However, the hosts from Sydney, Wests Tigers raised the bar on their expectations, they signed very good players. After all they were very close to reaching the play offs last season.
With the home field advantage, i believe Wests Tigers are capable of winning this match, my bet is Wests Tigers AH -1.5.
