Wests Tigers Podcast 0302

It's a post-win edition of the Wests Tigers Podcast!

Benji Marshall has kicked off his official coaching career with a win over the Warriors in the Preseason Challenge.

On this edition of the Wests Tigers Podcast, Joel Helmes is joined by Garry Watson and Declan McCutcheon to put the 18-16 trial game victory under the microscope.

Has the game answered any questions regarding our Round 2 line-up?

We take a look at some of the key positions that seemingly are still to be decided, including the halves, bench hooker/utility, back-row/lock, and wingers.

Naturally, there’s a good look at the performance of two of our new recruits – Jayden Sullivan and Aidan Sezer.

With Sullivan and Sezer mostly doing exactly what was expected of them, where does that leave Latu Fainu and Lachlan Galvin?

Other aspects of the trial game that come up for discussion include the performance of some of our still raw, but impressive young players such as Navren Willett and Tony Sukkar.

And we take a look at position number 30 in the Wests Tigers 2024 roster, asking the question – what position should we target for further strengthening based on that trial performance?

It’s great to be back talking football, especially a Wests Tigers victory!



  1. Great take gents. Surely Lobb finds a place over Tupou in light of the Dolphins future and Kepoa hasn’t shown much in how many years now? Terrible reads in defence are a speciality.
