Wests Tigers Team v South Sydney..

Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named an unchanged team for his side’s Round 18 clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Bankwest Stadium.

After a thrilling come-from-behind win over the Sea Eagles in Round 17, Maguire has opted for the same 21-man squad for Thursday’s must-win clash against the Sea Eagles. Co-captain Moses Mbye and Adam Doueihi will retain their spots at fullback and centre respectively after a successful switch last weekend while Harry Grant and Jacob Liddle will again split the hooking duties.

Chris Lawrence, Tommy Talau, Josh Reynolds and Russell Packer have been named in the squad as reserves, with an updated 19-man team list to be confirmed at 7:50pm on Wednesday.

Wests Tigers’ annual clash against the Rabbitohs will once again be for the Beyond Blue Cup, with the round helping to raise awareness for mental health in Australia.

Can’t complain. Would’ve been nice to see Musgrove back though.

Yeah but he’s only played a handful of games over the past few years. He’ll need a full preseason I’d imagine

Want to see more Liddle and Grant on at the same time

I guess they want to give Musgrove another week at least.

Quite a decent Injury as well

Our bench may have gotten away with a win against Manly, but there’s no way they can match Souffs quick play the balls. Really needed starch in this game

As expected. Hopefully we get to see a bit more of Liddle and Grant combo.

Will Reynolds and Packer have to leave again at half time or do they bring more clothes to wear.

Let’s throw the ball around and play exciting footy. LL Cool J owes us big time with this defence

I note Reynolds and Packer in the 21. Hint hint, stay seated boys.

That’s about as good a side as we have though. Musgrove/Blore maybe on the bench, when fit, but a good side nonetheless.

Hope to see the lads get in a good performance defensive-wise vs the Bunnies, no Latrell this time to terrorise poor Mbye.

Madge selecting a defensively oriented bench. Backing the starting side to get the points needed to win.

Hope Rusty brings an extra pair of socks this week for the cold.

That bunnies team is so beatable.
Got a good feeling about this one.

dont know how much more i can keep supporting this coach
he doesnt seem to get we only had a good 20 mins maybe and he awarded the whole team for it

what happened to him dropping players who dont perform consistanlty???

To be fair there isn’t really anyone knocking on the door ready to play

Musgrove but he’s injured still I guess. And Blore who seems to be out of favour

I got a feeling, a feeling deep inside. Oh yeah.

Still think Blore should be playing, but this is as expected.

Really look forward to getting Musgrove back.
