Defy impossible: The cannon

Wests Tigers v Eels, Monday 4.05pm at Stadium Australia

Tigers: Coach Michael Maguire has named an unchanged squad for the local derby after a morale-boosting weekend saw the team not only pick up two points but also avoid the injury carnage that battered so many sides. 

The club's only absentees, Shawn Blore (wrist) and Billy Walters (knee), are both at least two weeks away from a return to action.

Joey Leilua and Alex Seyfarth were dropped from the squad 24 hours out from kick-off. Russell Packer and Michael Chee Kam were left out on game day.

The Tigers are chasing back-to-back wins for the first time since Round 7, 2020.

Eels: Ryan Matterson was named to return from a head knock but was omitted from the squad an hour out from kick-off.

Matterson's absence in the second-row has again been taken by Isaiah Papali'i with Keegan Hipgrave promoted from the reserves to the interchange.

Back-rower Bryce Cartwright was included among the reserves after recovering from a broken jaw suffered in a pre-season training accident but missed out on the game-day 17 and played in the NSW Cup curtain-raiser.

Jordan Rankin and Haze Dunster were omitted on Sunday.
