Harold Matthews will look to bounce back after suffering their first loss of the season to Manly last weekend. 

"Wests have come off the back of a great result against a really big and strong Bulldogs team. They played hard footy and their havles were outstanding," head coach Adam Kyle said.

"Our defence will have to be at its best this week to contain Wests. We have worked really hard on getting our bodies infront of contact this week and communicating roles to each other. I'm really confident our team will be a lot stronger in our defence line this Saturday.

"We love playing at home, especially on the same day the NRL plays. I hope we get a lot of support to watch our game before heading off to GIO to watch the boys."

SG Ball will look to continue their unbeaten start to the season against Western Suburbs.

"The Raiders SG Ball side are really looking forward to a home game after two long road trips in a row," head coach Dean Souter said.
