TWO National Rugby League teams are making their way to Tamworth this week for an historic clash at Scully Park on Saturday, but a turf-war over the town has already played-out on Twitter

While it’s officially the Wests Tigers’ home match the Newcastle Knights have jousted the joint-venture on social media predicting a big red and blue presence at the game.

“We hope you enjoy visiting our neck of the woods,” the Knights said.

Organisers said the match has sold out.

Do you know a raving-mad Tigers fan in Tamworth? We’d love to talk to them, ahead of the game.
