Wests Tigers NRL Head Coach Jason Taylor has finalised his side to take on the Cronulla Sharks this afternoon in their Round 24 clash from Remondis Stadium.

Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 3:00pm, with live coverage via Fox Sports 1.

Having been under an injury cloud all week, Wests Tigers have been boosted by the surprise inclusion of Aaron Woods, who passed a late fitness test on his knee yesterday.

Woods takes his place in the front row alongside Sauaso Sue, while Chris Lawrence moves to the starting side at the expense of Martin Taupau, who drops back to the bench.

Lawrence will start in the back row and Halatau at lock, with Jack Buchanan and Manaia Cherrington dropping off the extended bench for Taylor's side this afternoon.
