Season shapers: Wests Tigers
Wests Tigers will start their 2023 campaign with back-to-back home games against the Titans and Knights at Leichhardt Oval from March 5. They'll then shift their attention to a match-up against the Bulldogs at Belmore Sports Ground - their first time ever playing at the venue since becoming a joint venture in 2000. A major road trip to Melbourne awaits in Round 4 to complete the opening month.
The Tigers have their first bye in the lead-up to Origin I, meaning they'll be fresh for their Round 14 encounter with the Raiders at Campbelltown Stadium. They'll rematch with the Storm at the same venue in the lead-up to Game Two with both teams to be without their Origin players. Their third and final bye will come in Round 17, leaving Tim Sheens' side to play the next 10 games straight.
The run home
A tough finish mixed with travel and opposition awaits in the final month of the competition with the Wests Tigers hosting the Warriors in Hamilton, followed by the Dolphins at CommBank Stadium. They'll meet the Roosters at Allianz Stadium and Sea Eagles at 4 Pines Park to finish the regular season.
And another thing...
New Wests Tigers recruits Api Koroisau and Charlie Staines will take on their former club Penrith in Round 9 with the joint venture set to travel to Bathurst's Carrington Park. It will be the first time the Wests Tigers have played at the venue with Luke Garner and Tyrone Peachey also set to line up against their old side.
