Coach Michael Marum was pleased with his players for holding out a fast finishing star-studded Townsville Blackhawks side, 28-26.
Tigers are an equally strong side which has a vast amount of experience. They missed out on the premiership last year, taking home the runners-up flag.
The last time the two teams met, at the Tap Out Energy Stadium, Tigers ran out victors 14-8.
The Tigers are coming off a comprehensive 56-22 victory over Central Queensland Capras last round with three players collecting doubles in their 10 tries to 4 whitewash of the opposition.
