All the Round 21 team news!

Wests Tigers will welcome back a number of key players from injury and suspension as they take on the Gold Coast Titans this Sunday for their Round 21 clash.

After a heartbreaking last-start defeat to the Parramatta Eels, Wests Tigers have received a huge boost for Sunday’s game with Chris Lawrence (pectoral), Sauaso Sue (suspension) and Joel Edwards (concussion) all included in the 21-man squad named to take on the Titans.

Tim Grant also starts in the front row after making an impressive return from injury last week, while Josh Aloiai has been named amongst the reserves after playing 50 minutes for the Club’s Intrust Super Premiership team against Wentworthville last weekend.

Having played on the edge for the past fortnight, Elijah Taylor has formally been named there this weekend, with Matt Eisenhuth to start at lock as per last week’s late change.

Alex Twal and Michael Chee Kam round out the bench spots alongside the ever-reliable Ava Seumanufagai after impressive performances last Sunday against the Eels at ANZ Stadium.

For the Titans, Coach Neil Henry has opted to retain Tyrone Roberts and Ash Taylor in the halves together, with Kane Elgey moving from the interchange list back to the reserves.

Konrad Hurrell (hamstring) is replaced in the centres by John Olive, while Henry's men will also sweat on the inclusion of both Dale Copley (medial strain) and Kevin Proctor (hamstring strain), who have both been named but will be under injury clouds throughout the week.

Phillip Sami, Pat Politoni and Agnatius Paasi join Elgey as the reserves for Sunday's clash, while Karl Lawton joins the interchange bench in jersey 14.
