Tue 16 Jun 2020, 04:00 PM
Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named his 21-man squad for Saturday’s clash against the North Queensland Cowboys with several new faces included in the team.
After not featuring in Round 5, Luke Garner and Robert Jennings both return to the starting side for Round 6 — Garner called in to the team in place of Chris Lawrence while Jennings returns for Tommy Talau, who picked up a minor hamstring injury last week.
In a boost for the side, Samoan international Luciano Leilua has been named despite being forced off last week with an ankle injury, while Matt Eisenhuth joins the bench in place of Russell Packer, who is suspended until Round 8.
Rookie forward Sam McIntyre has been included on the bench in jersey 16, while fellow rookie Reece Hoffman is also included in the squad in jersey 21. Hoffman joins Lawrence, Benji Marshall and Billy Walters as reserves named as part of the extended 21-man squad, which will be reduced to 19 players at 5:30pm, Friday.
Wests Tigers have won five of their past six games against the North Queensland Cowboys with Saturday’s fixture the only game between the two sides in 2020.

Before everyone freaks out it clearly says Talau is injured.
Bench forwards have been an issue every week, there’s always one or two guys there who probably aren’t good enough to play but our forth there isn’t strong enough
How in the world is Jennings back in …
LOL this going to be good reading . I’m going to make some popcorn

I will be up all night reading the comments here.
How on earth is Robert Jennings back in the team, i cannot stand to watch this guy get out jumped and continously drop the ball for another week. Not sure how Maguire can justiy dropping Tommy Talau after what was an OK performance.
