Team News: Wests Tigers vs. Sea Eagles

Both Wests Tigers and the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles will head in to Sunday’s game with few changes as they look to end the 2017 season on a positive note.

After a tight loss to the Panthers last weekend, Coach Ivan Cleary has named the same 17 for Sunday’s game against the Sea Eagles, while also retaining the same four reserves — three of which featured in the Club’s Intrust Super Premiership game last weekend.

Of the four reserves, only Josh Aloiai hasn’t been named in Intrust Super Premiership this weekend, with Joel Edwards, JJ Felise and Ava Seumanufagai all listed by Coach David Heath to line up against the Sea Eagles’ reserve grade team at H.E. Laybutt Field.

Having played the full 80 minutes against the Panthers, hooker Matt McIlwrick is also free to play after taking the early plea for his Grade 1 Dangerous Tackle charge on Peter Wallace.

After coming from behind to defeat the Sydney Roosters last weekend, Coach Trent Barrett has made just one change to this week’s team — young forward Addin Fonua-Blake returning from suspension to replace Kelepi Tanginoa on the interchange bench.

Matthew Wright has been named on the wing despite copping a knock last weekend, while Brad Parker retains his spot over Brian Kelly, who has been named as a reserve.

Wests Tigers have teamed up with beyondblue for Sunday's game against the Sea Eagles and will be raising awareness of mental health on the day at Leichhardt Oval.
