Mick Potter has revealed exclusively to Wests Tigers Members a key change to this weeks side to face the Melbourne Storm.


Potter has confirmed that Joel Reddy will start in the back row following the successful return of Chris Lawrence last weekend.


While the move may come as a surprise to some, Potter revealed the reason behind shifting Reddy out of the backs.


Its having a quality player like Chris Lawrence coming back into the team that brings the change, Potter said.


Chris had some spark in his step on the weekend and given he gets a bit more ball he will come up with a few big plays.


Joel Reddy has been doing an excellent job for us on the wing and in the centres.


He filled in really well in the back row (last week) and he adds that versatility to us.


Joel might start in the back row but he could finish the game somewhere else.


With the Wests Tigers edging closer to the top eight with three wins from the past four games, this Saturday against the Storm will prove a massive test.


Make sure you get behind the team at Leichhardt Oval this Saturday.
