Tigers still gunning for a win against Roosters

THEY may be second last on the ladder, but West Tigers coach Mick Potter is not going into tonight's clash against the Roosters with any thought beside winning.

Speaking at training yesterday, Potter, whose position is the subject of an internal review, said he had identified some weaknesses in the Roosters game he hoped his young players could exploit.

"They will be tough, but I think we can break them down," Potter said. "We will target a couple of their players. We will test their back three as well.

"Defensively, they are pretty complete and they have plenty of strike (power) with the ball. You think you have got them shut down and they will have another crack at you the next play.

"This game is about physically matching the Roosters and then coming up with a couple of plays that can break them down."

The Roosters have lost star back-rower Boyd Cordner for at least six weeks with a fractured ankle, five-eighth James Maloney saying the 21-year-old would be a huge loss.

"He's been one of our best all year - we're all crossing our fingers he'll somehow get back (for the finals)," Maloney said.

The Roosters will welcome back Sonny Bill Williams from a two-week suspension.
