Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named his side to take on the Melbourne Storm this Saturday at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
With Luke Brooks suspended for one match, Josh Reynolds returns to the run-on side and will start at five-eighth alongside captain Benji Marshall in the halves. Marshall will once again captain the side with Moses Mbye sidelined, while Joseph Leilua returns from an ankle injury to take his place in the centres.
Sam McIntyre earns a start in the back row with Luke Garner dropping back to the bench, while Zane Musgrove returns for his first game since picking up an injury in Round 6 against the North Queensland Cowboys.
Rookie halfback Jock Madden has been named on the extended bench alongside Tommy Talau, Jacob Liddle and Michael Chee Kam.

Coach: Michael Maguire
Would of rather seen Madden get a run than Reynolds.
Packer strange decision so think someone on the bench will change maybe Liddle instead.
Shows the lack of depth we have when looking at the 21 man squad, lets hope no injuries in the last 2 rounds with existing contracted players as these are nothing games other than where we finish on the ladder.
Lawrence don’t mind his selection means he will play 3 games in a row before retiring on 253 games that some achievement.
Line maybe 14+ on these selections.
Based upon prior games take the line.
Tigers always play well against the storm so expect a bold showing only lost by 2 points last game and we WON by 1 in 2018. Looking forward to the hookers going at each other.
