Match Preview: Round 20 vs Brisbane Broncos

Wests Tigers will be vying for their fourth win of the season when they travel north to face the Brisbane Broncos on Saturday night.

The match will form part of Women in League Round as the NRL celebrates the contributions of those who continue to re-write the history of our competition.

Brett Kimmorley has made one change to the team that controversially lost to the Cowboys on Sunday, with Austin Dias replacing Luke Garner.

Dias has been named on the interchange bench, with Alex Seyfarth shifting into the starting line-up at second-row.

After testing positive to COVID in the lead up to last week’s match, Kimmorley will be back in charge of the team for the trip to Brisbane.

The Broncos have elected to name a couple of former Wests Tigers for Saturday’s match, with Delouise Hoeter and Billy Walters set to return to the starting line-up.

The joint-venture have won three consecutive matches against the Broncos dating back to 2019, which represents their longest running winning streak against any side.
