Coaching Insider: NRL Round 19

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary spoke to the media today ahead of his side's clash against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles tomorrow afternoon at Lottoland.

Fresh off the bye last week, Cleary said the team was starting to feel more settled and ready to deliver some strong performances to end the 2017 regular season on a positive note. 

"It's a long season for everyone, so it's always nice to go in to the bye after a win," he said.

"Now we're looking forward to getting back in to these next group of games. 

"Our attack and our completion rate was good against Newcastle.

"We're still looking to find that true 80-minute performance but it's a difficult trip up there and it's another tough road trip to Lottoland tomorrow so we'll take something out of that."

Cleary confirmed that both Aaron Woods and James Tedesco should be right for Sunday's game, provided that they pulled up okay from the final training run today at Leichhardt Oval.

"They should be okay — they've just got to get through today's session," he said.

"It'll probably be pretty good for them to get out there and have a game; I think everyone's pretty disappointed around the NSW camp so it'll be a good chance to put that behind them."
