Wests Tigers will be looking for a return to form when they face off against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at CommBank Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Brett Kimmorley’s men faced off against the Bulldogs at Leichhardt Oval just one month ago, emerging victorious by fourteen points.
Match Highlights: Wests Tigers v Bulldogs
Adam Doueihi has been named to make his long-awaited return from an ACL injury suffered in the final rounds of 2021.
He’ll be joined on the interchange bench by Fa’amanu Brown, while Asu Kepaoa will replace the suspended Brent Naden in the centres.
With Luciano Leilua departing the club, Kelma Tuilagi will slot into the second row alongside Luke Garner.
The Bulldogs will be eager to continue the momentum built in their last-start victory and have named a similar side to the one that comprehensively defeated the Eels on Monday.
The match will be the third clash between the sides at CommBank Stadium, with Wests Tigers winning each of the previous two matches.
