Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has made several changes for his side’s Round 7 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Bankwest Stadium.

After a strong last-start win over the North Queensland Cowboys, long-term injuries to Robert Jennings (hamstring), Zane Musgrove (foot) and Alex Twal (knee) have brought about three changes to the side this week as Wests Tigers look to record back-to-back wins for the first time this year.

Oliver Clark returns to the squad in place of Musgrove, while Matt Eisenhuth shifts to lock in place of Twal with Elijah Taylor joining the bench.

Tommy Talau also makes a timely return from injury to replace Jennings on the wing in the only other change to the 21-man squad.

Last week’s debutant Sam McIntyre retains his spot on the bench after a strong showing on debut, while Luciano Leilua is set to play his 50th NRL game on Sunday.

Leilua's milestone isn't the only record of note this weekend with the club set to play its 500th game as a club since foundation in 2000.

For the Bulldogs, Coach Dean Pay has named Kerrod Holland in place of the suspended Christian Crichton while Jack Cogger joins the bench.

Nick Meaney has recovered from his hip flexor strain and could be a late inclusion, along with Aiden Tolman after he was cleared from his COVID-19 enforced break.

Both teams will provide an updated 19-man team list on Saturday night before finalising their sides one hour prior to kickoff (5:30pm, Sunday).
