Wests Tigers playmaker Blake Austin spoke to the media this week about the need to bounce back with an impressive performance in their Round 18 clash.

With regular five-eighth Braith Anasta missing the match due to a bicep injury sustained against the Penrith Panthers, Austin will start in the No. 6 jersey this Friday night as the Club takes on the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Brookvale Oval.

Hear what he had to say in full in the press conference above.

Be there on Sunday, July 20 when we take on the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium! There's great pre-sale ticket prices available, so get in quick!
