Team announcement: Rd 3 v Wests Tigers

Aquis Gold Coast Titans coach Neil Henry has retained the side that went down to Melbourne Storm for Saturday’s clash with the unbeaten Wests Tigers at Cbus Super Stadium (8.30pm Qld time).

Eddy Pettybourne, who missed the match with a corked thigh suffered in the opening round clash with Newcastle Knights, has been named as 18th man and his progress will be monitored during the week before the final line-up is decided.

Nathan Davis (shoulder) was the only injury concern from the 34-16 loss to the Storm but has been selected and will be checked later in the week. Co-captain William Zillman will be given another week to overcome his nagging calf injury.

“Wests Tigers have been impressive in winning their first two rounds and been strong right across the park, so it will be a good test for us,” Henry said.

“We played well in patches against Melbourne but need to be more consistent over 80 minutes and defend our errors better, but we also took some positives out of the performance after the opening round win against the Knights.”

 1 – David Mead

2 – Anthony Don
