    Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire will turn to youth for his side’s Round 22 clash against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles this Thursday as they look to bounce back from a last-start defeat against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

    With captain Moses Mbye (hip flexor) and Life Member Robbie Farah (tibia) both ruled out of this week’s game, Maguire has named 19-year-old rookie Tommy Talau to make his debuts in the centres while Jacob Liddle returns to the side at hooker.

    The son of former Bulldogs centre Willie Talau, Tommy will become the 225th player to represent Wests Tigers and the third player to debut under Maguire in 2019.

    Benji Marshall will captain Wests Tigers with Mbye unavailable to injury.

    After recently inking a new deal with the club until the end of 2021, Liddle’s inclusion at hooker is a seamless transition for Wests Tigers with the young rake featuring for the side on nine occasions already this season.

    Elijah Taylor has been included on the bench as possible cover for Liddle, with Josh Reynolds — who is also capable of playing the position — named in the reserves.

    Wests Tigers are otherwise unchanged for Thursday’s game as they look to bounce back from a tight defeat to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs last week with Luke Garner named in the back row pending his Judiciary appearance tonight.

    Garner will front the Judiciary seeking to have a Grade One Dangerous Contact - Other charge overturned, with the forward free to play if successful.

    If unsuccessful, Garner will be suspended for one week with Chris Lawrence, Chris McQueen and Sam McIntyre all options in the 21-man squad to replace him.

    Wests Tigers will provide an updated 19-man side to face the Sea Eagles at 7:55pm AEST on Wednesday before finalising their side one hour prior to kickoff.

  • Rip in Tom

    Interesting that McIntyre is 21st man, must be improving



  • We must all be thinking the same thing.

    Good luck boys.

    Don’t think so, we are just scraping the bottom of a 30 man barrel



  • I hope that Madge hasn’t given up. Is the team going to stand up?



  • Congrats, Tommy. Rip in mate.



  • Good luck Tommy and Jacob I hope you both kill it against Manly win or lose.

    True. With reynolds, fonua, packer, matts, robbie and aloiai either unavailable or undesirable, it only leaves 3 other players who miss out on the top 21.

    He isn’t wrong, Geo!!



  • @Harvey McIntyre is a good hard Novocastrian forward. He is another player who has incrementally improved and I expect he will continue to improve when given a go in the NRL.
