The Bulldogs will say goodbye to talented outside back Will Hopoate in a match that will see both sides playing for nothing more than pride.
If things go their way, Wests Tigers can finish as high as 11th. That still won't give their fans a lot to cheer them up over the summer, but it is still better than 13th.
Last-placed, or at least a share of it, has belonged to the Bulldogs all season.
They have a host of big-name players joining the club for 2022, meaning some of the team they'll send out on Sunday are facing uncertain futures.

Stefano Utoikamanu v Jack Hetherington: The young Tiger has come of age in 2021, averaging 10 hit-ups and 100 metres per game as well as busting 35 tackles and crossing for six tries. He has been a shining light in another disappointing for Michael Maguire and will look to round out the season with another strong display.
Hetherington may sail close to the wind at times but he refuses to take a backward step regardless of a rival's reputation, as he showed against Manly on Sunday. It's the last hurrah for both these sides so expect the forwards to leave nothing in the tank.
The Wests Tigers can never be accused of letting their teammates take one-out runs. They have the most support runs, decoy runs and offloads in the NRL through 24 rounds.
