Roosters-Tigers match bound to be a highlight

1:21 pm on 20 March 2010

It took one round for Wests Tigers and Sydney Roosters fans to begin dreaming of their sides ending long NRL finals droughts.

And it's taken only two for the clubs to find themselves in a bona fide Sunday afternoon blockbuster at the Sydney Football Stadium.

The Roosters' 36-10 upset of South Sydney and the Tigers' amazing comeback to beat Manly 26-22 were two of the gobsmacking results of the season's opening weekend.

On Sunday the two first-up winners are likely to run onto the ground they share in front of a bumper crowd boosted by Lote Tuqiri's impressive return on Monday night.
