The Tigers turn to Moses
Wests Tigers five-eighth Mitchell Moses says he is ready to take on the added responsibilities ahead of their clash with the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.
The Tigers will be missing three of the stars in James Tedesco, Aaron Woods and Robbie Farah.
The star trio will be sorely missed by a Tigers team looking to back up their impressive 34-26 win over the Panthers last week and while the Bulldogs will only have two players absent, Moses said he is happy to take more of a responsibility with the Origin stars missing.
“It will put a bit more pressure on me, but I’m happy to have that on my shoulders,” Moses said on weststigers.com.au
“It'll be a tough game. The Bulldogs have been in good form, but without Teddy (James Tedesco) it will be tough.”
The Tigers will be looking to their halves to direct them around the field on Saturday night and come up with the big plays, but according to Moses, the loss of Tedesco, Farah and Woods won’t change their game.
“It doesn’t change the way we play at all.
“We will need to end our sets a lot better, because haven’t been doing this well the last couple of weeks and be looking to make the Bulldogs come off their own line.
“Our kicking game will be massive for us, because they have a really good back three and you can’t give them too much space.
“Our kicking game is going to have to be on and we’re going to have to defend pretty well.
“They have a big pack and our forwards will have to stand up.”
THE business end of the season is fast approaching as the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs host the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.
There'll be no shortage of attacking talent on display as the two Sydney clubs duke it out in a classic Saturday night fixture.
