Wests Tigers forward Matt Eisenhuth says the team are doing a good job of making adjustments in the early season rounds as they search for consistency under Head Coach Michael Maguire.
The 26-year-old spoke to the media this week after his side's come-from-behind win over the Gold Coast Titans last Saturday, reflecting on the changes to the side with the omission of Josh Reynolds and the improvements being made by the team.
"It's actually a good position for the club to be in," enthused Eisenhuth.
"For us to lose a quality player like Grubby [Josh Reynolds] for a couple of weeks but have another quality player come back from injury in Benji [Marshall] is great.
“At the start of the year his experience was invaluable for the boys in those first few wins. We’ve got a lot of experience around the park with Robbie Farah there as well.

“Week to week we’re building and wanting to build on things," he added.
"We’re not executing on as well as what we would have liked previously.
"We came out and bounced back on the weekend and now we’ll just focus on what we’ve got to do right to beat the Roosters. They’ve got a good side and they’ve been playing well and consistent. We really need to focus on starting well this week and matching their enthusiasm — they’re defending premiers for a reason and they’re playing up to that standard at the moment so we're going to have to be on."

Having played every game for the club last season, Eisenhuth missed the opening three games of the year but has since worked his way back in to the squad — pointing out the adjustments being made by Maguire in the first two months.
"I think Madge [Maguire] is a bit similar to us in that," he said.
"He’s learning about the playing group each week and figuring out what works for us with little adjustments here and there that we're learning as we go.
"As long as we keep nailing the little changes each week, we’re improving."
