Wests Tigers v Cowboys: Morgan returns to face unchanged Tigers

The Tigers were in trouble early against the Knights last week before saving their season with a 28-26 win in one of the most entertaining games of 2019.

Team news
Wests Tigers: No changes to the side which took down the Knights in Newcastle in round 19. Michael Chee Kam was hospitalised after being knocked out late in the game but has been named to face the Cowboys pending concussion protocols.

Cowboys: Michael Morgan returns after a three-week absence recovering from concussion. John Asiata goes back to the bench and Corey Jensen is out of the 17. Coen Hess has been retained as the starting centre after impressing with 16 runs for 130 metres against the Sharks.

For the Tigers to win
Coach Michael Maguire would love to see a dominant opening 20 minutes and avoid having to play catch-up. The Tigers fought back gamely and got the job done against Newcastle but they need to prove they can get an early lead and stay there. They need to match the experienced Cowboys pack and get the ball as often as possible to their money man - Corey Thompson.

For the Cowboys to win

Clifford keeps showing glimpses of his potential but doesn't have the experience to pull his team together and call the right shots when games get close late in the second half. John Asiata needs to offer more assistance in terms of game management, while the star-studded pack has to lead the way. Speedy fullback Scott Drinkwater needs more touches of the ball.
