Match Preview: Round 5 vs Sharks

After a cruel defeat on the Gold Coast last week, Wests Tigers have their sights set on this Sunday’s clash against the Cronulla Sharks at PointsBet Stadium.

Michael Maguire has elected to name the same seventeen that fought valiantly against the Titans last Thursday, with Jock Madden set to partner Luke Brooks in the halves.

Kelma Tuilagi is expected to line-up in the second row following a head knock sustained against the Titans, while Luciano Leilua will again combine with James Roberts and David Nofoaluma on the right edge.

Off the bench, Alex Twal will be looking to emulate his efforts from last week, which saw him play 64 minutes for 134 running metres and a team-high 34 tackles.

Craig Fitzgibbon has followed Michael Maguire’s lead in naming an unchanged lineup for the match after the Sharks kept Newcastle to zero points last week.

Wests Tigers will be looking to improve their strong record in the Sutherland Shire, with the club winning eight and drawing one of their fifteen clashes at PointsBet Stadium.
