Wests Tigers showed what they’re capable of during last week’s thrilling clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs, and although they couldn’t leave Stadium Australia with two competition points, Coach Michael Maguire would have liked what he saw from his men.

They now have a chance to build on last week’s performance when they face the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Bankwest Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Round 7 clash will be just the second time Wests Tigers have featured on Anzac Day — the only other time being in 2004, also against the Sea Eagles.

Maguire’s men will be looking for their second win of the season when they head to Bankwest Stadium for the first time in 2021 — a venue they’ll be aiming to improve at with just three wins from eight visits.

Wests Tigers rookie Jake Simpkin will line-up for his second NRL match after the hooker made 58 tackles in his debut appearance against the Rabbitohs.

Five-eighth Adam Doueihi was also impressive in the match at Stadium Australia and will continue to build his combination with halfback Luke Brooks.

For the Sea Eagles, they’re aiming for three-consecutive wins following their 36-0 triumph over the Gold Coast Titans last Saturday, in which fullback Tom Trbojevic produced a spectacular performance in his return from injury.

Wests Tigers know they’ll have to contain the NSW State of Origin representative on Sunday afternoon to limit the Sea Eagles’ point-scoring.
