Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire said he was looking forward to the return of Josh Reynolds as his side travel north to take on the Melbourne Storm at Sunshine Coast Stadium tomorrow.
Reynolds will start in the number six jersey alongside captain Benji Marshall with Luke Brooks suspended — his first game in the halves alongside the Kiwi veteran since Round 2 and his first start since Round 9.
Maguire said his inclusion would be a boost for his side as they look to bounce back from last week's close defeat to South Sydney and correct their lapses in concentration that saw the Rabbitohs race out to an early 20-0 lead.
"Josh is full of energy," Maguire enthused. "He's really looking forward to playing.
"He's just a footy player — he loves playing footy. He loves being out there on the field and he'll bring a lot to us on the field as he does every time he plays.
"It's a good opportunity for him to get back him and do the things he loves doing.
"Benji and Josh have been doing a lot at training and their combinations throughout the year have had time together," he said.

"I think they're just looking forward to playing.
"We've had a couple of strong moments in games, but now we want to make sure that we consistently do that over the course of the whole game.
"If we do that then I've got a very capable group of men."
