Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has named an unchanged side for his team’s Round 3 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs this Sunday at Campbelltown.
Kickoff for the match is at 4:05pm AEDT as Wests Tigers look to make it three straight wins to start the season for the first time in club history.
Off the back of a dominant 34-6 win over the New Zealand Warriors in Round 2, Maguire has confirmed an unchanged team for this week’s game with Moses Mbye returning to the number one jersey after his late inclusion last weekend.
His inclusion sees Corey Thompson shift to the left wing outside Robert Jennings, while Kiwi international Esan Marsters partners Mahe Fonua on the right edge.
David Nofoaluma (shoulder) has not been named as he continues his rehabilitation with the winger expected to be available for selection in Round 4.
Russell Packer, Thomas Mikaele, Josh Aloiai and Michael Chee Kam all retain their spots on the bench after another impressive showing, with Paul Momirovski, Josh Reynolds, Matt Eisenhuth and Chris McQueen named as reserves.
Sunday’s game will see a triple-header of rugby league action between Wests Tigers and the Bulldogs at Campbelltown with Jersey Flegg kicking off at 12:00pm followed by Canterbury Cup at 1:55pm and NRL at 4:05pm. The Bulldogs have not played at the South West Sydney suburban ground since 2011 while Wests Tigers will look to make it three straight wins at Campbelltown for the first time since 2012.
