Braith Anasta keen to prove fitness for Sharks game

Braith Anasta could be a late inclusion in the Wests Tigers team to tackle Cronulla Sharks on Friday night.


Anasta trained with the side at Concord Oval this morning in an endeavour to prove he has overcome a shoulder injury suffered in the round 14 loss to the Broncos.


Coach Mick Potter said he would discuss the issue with his coaching staff and wait to see how Anasta pulls up after training before making a decision.


Braith will have to convince us 100 per cent that he is right and is ready to play, Potter said.


Im not going to take any chances. The players that are there have been doing the job so there is no reason to change them.


The possible return of Anasta is only one selection headache Potter faces in coming weeks. Winger Marika Koroibete, prop Keith Galloway and utility Joel Reddy have been marked down to return from injury for the round 19 match against the Warriors at Leichhardt Oval.


It is a pleasant headache to have. It could be a case of having Marika back and we have got two wingers (David Nofoaluma and Tim Simona) who have been doing the job, Potter added.


He may have to come back through State Cup. Im sure Marika will have a good case of being picked for the NRL after he plays a couple of games. We will just see where we are at for that particular week.
