NRL Round 5 Team Announcement
Wests Tigers Head Coach Mick Potter has named his side to face Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday, April 6 at 3:00pm.
Following a disappointing loss to the New Zealand Warriors last round at Westpac Stadium in Wellington, Wests Tigers will be boosted by the return of veteran forward Liam Fulton and young gun Tim Simona from injury.
Utility forward Sauaso Sue will miss six to eight weeks with an ankle injury sustained in the Warriors clash with Simona taking his place on the bench.
Twenty-one-year-old forward Sitaleki Akauola has been named on an extended bench for the Manly clash. The Manuwera junior has made one NRL appearance previously, Round 5 of the 2013 season against the Melbourne Storm.
Three grades will feature at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday with NSW Cup kicking off at 10:50am followed by Holden Cup and NRL fixtures at 12:35pm and 3:00pm respectively.
