Wests Tigers Coach Jason Taylor spoke to the media on Sunday ahead of his side's Round 17 clash against the Parramatta Eels on Monday night.

With his side looking to avoid three straight defeats on Monday night, Taylor has confirmed some significant team news for his side, with halfback Luke Brooks to miss the match with a shoulder injury sustained in last Sunday's defeat to the Penrith Panthers.

Josh Drinkwater has been named to make his Club debut as a replacement for Brooks, and will become the 186th player to play first-grade for Wests Tigers.

See what Taylor had to say in full about Monday's clash with the Eels in the video above.
