Team News: Wests Tigers vs. Penrith

Dan Talintyre (Twitter: @dantalintyre)

After a convincing last start victory over the Gold Coast Titans, Wests Tigers will head in to Sunday's clash against the Penrith Panthers with an unchanged lineup.

In a rare occurance for Coach Ivan Cleary, no injuries or suspensions have allowed Wests Tigers to select the same 17 that downed the Titans last Sunday with a dominant performance.

Jack Littlejohn will again come off the interchange bench in jersey 17, with forward Josh Aloiai, JJ Felise, Joel Edwards and Ava Seumanufagai all included in the squad as reserve players.

Having eeked out a tight win over the Bulldogs, Penrith have also named a near-identical side for this Sunday's game, with captain Matt Moylan included amongst the reserves.

Moylan has not played since going off midway through the Panthers' Round 20 win over the Titans, but could return from a hamstring injury this week in place of Tyrone May.

Bryce Cartwright has again been named on the bench after returning from injury, while Dean Whare is back from a jaw injury in the reserves, along with Viliame Kikau and Sitaleki Akauola.

Moses Leota replaces Leilani Latu in the only change for Anthony Griffin's men.

See all the team news for both sides ahead of Sunday's game at Pepper Stadium!

Be there as Sunday afternoon footy returns to Leichhardt Oval against the Sea Eagles!
