How to watch Wests Tigers vs Sydney Roosters NRL live and free

Posted: 22 August 2020 9:05 am

A desperate Wests Tigers face the reigning premiers at Leichhardt Oval. This is how to follow all the action.

SUMMARY: Tigers vs Roosters is exclusive to Fox League. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

They say the more things change, the more they stay the same and that seems frustratingly true for the Wests Tigers. In three of the past four seasons the Tigers have finished ninth, one spot out of the play-offs. With six rounds left until the finals, that is their position once more.

The joint-venture club needs to overturn a four-point deficit to catch the eighth-placed Rabbitohs and it won't be easy starting with the Roosters. A defeat to Melbourne last week left the premiers vulnerable in the top four. They will be intent on showing that was an aberration.

Who will win Tigers vs Roosters?

It seems likely it will be yet another season of frustration for Tigers fans. With just six games remaining, they need to reverse a four-point deficit to climb into the top eight. They also have a nightmare run home that includes games against Penrith, the Storm and Parramatta.

The injury-hit Roosters were disappointing against Melbourne last weekend. While Sonny Bill Williams isn't quite ready to return yet, they get some talent back this week, including Brett Morris and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves. It's hard to tip against the premiers on Saturday.
