Chemist Warehouse Footy Focus: Round 5

In this week’s Chemist Warehouse Footy Focus, Wests Tigers can provide the following injury update ahead of the Round 5 clash against the Melbourne Storm.

Elijah Taylor was not named in the 21-man squad to face Melbourne this week as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury, with the club hopeful that Taylor will return next weekend against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles. 

Josh Reynolds is also nearing a return from his hamstring injury suffered in Round 1, with the five-eighth likely to make his club debut either against the Sea Eagles in Round 6 or the following week against Newcastle in Tamworth.

With Jacob Liddle making a successful return from off-season shoulder surgery in last week’s win over Melbourne, the club has no other injury concerns heading in to Round 5.
