Wests Tigers Team v Melbourne *Official

Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has named a strong side for Thursday’s Round 10 clash against the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park with just one change to last week’s team.

After sitting out the big win over Penrith due to concussion, versatile young forward Josh Aloiai returns on the bench in place of last week’s debutant, Oliver Clark.

Aloiai joins fellow forwards Jacob Liddle, Thomas Mikaele and Michael Chee Kam on the bench for Thursday’s game as Wests Tigers look to make it three straight wins over the Melbourne Storm following their two victories in season 2018.

Wests Tigers’ run-on side is unchanged after producing the fastest start in club history with five tries in the opening 17 minutes of last week’s Magic Round clash.

Paul Momirovski and Elijah Taylor — who travelled to Brisbane last week as part of the NRL squad — are again listed as reserves, along with Clark and Luke Garner.

Kicking off Round 10 at AAMI Park on Thursday night, Wests Tigers will travel to Melbourne tomorrow following their final training run and will provide an updated 19-man squad 24 hours before kickoff (7:50pm AEST, Wednesday). Final team lists for both sides will then be confirmed at 6:50pm on Thursday.1.

I’d be betting they will line up as per last week

Hopefully, seemed to be a positive change. Worth another shot at least.

MCK out for Clark… PLEASE

Garner in for Mahe, Cheeky to centre.

@WT2K great memories what a champion he was

Not sold on McQueen just yet. He’s improving and doing nothing wrong, but I think we need a bit more for him to be certain starter.

Clark and Garner drop off Reserves…

Clarke deserves another crack. Might be held back because it’s the Storm. Madge after experience over enthusiasm.

Melbourne have made a strange call …Sandor Earl on the bench
