Wests Tigers Team v Souths Rd 9

Wests Tigers have been boosted by the inclusion of co-captain Moses Mbye, Luciano Leilua and Sam McIntyre for their Round 9 clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs this Friday night.

After being helped from the field in last week’s close loss to the Panthers, Leilua and McIntyre have both been named for this week’s game as Wests Tigers look to consolidate their spot inside the top eight.

Mbye’s inclusion is also a key one for Michael Maguire’s side after a knee complaint last week prevented him from his regular goal-kicking duties.

With Joey Leilua suspended for the next four matches, Maguire has named Michael Chee Kam — who scored the match-winner last time the two sides met — as his replacement in the centres with Chris Lawrence coming on to the bench.

Rookie Reece Hoffman joins the reserves in place of Lawrence, where he joins Benji Marshall, Billy Walters and Russell Packer in the extended squad.

Wests Tigers will provide an updated 19-man squad on Thursday night, before finalising their side to take on the Rabbitohs at 6:55pm on Friday.

Man Chee kam and Lawrence in.

Tough game.

Prefer Tim Simona than MCK.

In trouble if either McIntyre or Lucy don’t line up. Who then Packer?

Oh well…MCK simply can’t play center at NRL level. He will tire, arm grab and miss. Souths outside backs will have a field day.

We really needed to address this when Cory was released. It is hard to fathom how the club did not add an outside back when they released him.

And btw, please let Doueihi keep kicking. MBye doesn’t need the added pressure.
