Wests Tigers centre Adam Doueihi said he felt comfortable with his positional switch this from five-eighth to centre and was happy with the result that it helped deliver for his side at Magic Round.

Doueihi was a standout performer for Wests Tigers — racking up 20 points with two tries and six goals — while the new-look halves combination of Luke Brooks and Moses Mbye also clicked as the Michael Maguire's men ran out 36-18 winners.

For the Lebanon international, the move was a relatively easy one to make given the number of positions he has already played in his short career.

"It was quite simple for me," Doueihi told ABC Grandstand on Saturday.

"I've played a lot of centre in the past few years so I felt comfortable when Madge tapped me on the shoulder earlier in the week and said he wanted to give Moses a shot at six and play me in the centres.

"I was open to the change and it got the result we wanted.

"I'm pretty versatile," he said. "I can play a few different positions so it was pretty simple for me during the week.

"I thought Moses and Brooksy controlled the game really well last night."

Douiehi adds another one as Wests Tigers take advantage of extra man


As the side now searches for its first run of consecutive wins this season, Doueihi said the Magic Round performance needed to be backed up with a good result in Round 11 for it to truly make a difference.

"We haven't had too many of those nights when the ball has bounced our way this year but it was on our side a bit last night," Doueihi said.

"It means nothing, though, if we don't turn it on next week against the Warriors.

"We've definitely spoken about it as a club — we've struggled to deliver back-to-back performances. We've celebrated this one, then we'll have a thorough review and it's all business heading into the Warriors and aiming for another two points."
