Six trial games will be played with the real football kicking-off on Friday night when Parramatta clash with arch-rivals Penrith in Albury.

West Tigers will battle the defending Foundation Cup premiers roosters at Aussie Stadium on Saturday, kicking-off at 7pm.

The Foundation Cup is the one piece of silverware the Wests Tigers have not been able to get their hands on.

Many Wests Tigers fans have had sleepless nights knowing this trophy is the one that that continues to elude their team.

Can you handle all the excitement this weekend?

Will you need to bar all things featuring the colour ‘red’ to ensure you don’t lose control of your emotions at the game?

If so, this is perfectly understandable.
