Behind enemy lines: Round 18

The Wests Tigers have named their mandatory 21-man squad to face the St George Illawarra Dragons at Jubilee Oval, Kogarah on Sunday, July 15.

The Tigers have welcomed former Dragon Benji Marshall back into the fold to play the Red V, at the expense of Josh Reynolds (shoulder).

Marshall's return will be the first time he has played with Robbie Farah since the final round of the 2013 season, in the club's first game at Kogarah since 2012.

David Nofoaluma and Ben Matulino have also returned for Ivan Cleary's team, as Russell Packer is set to play the Dragons for the first time since his 2017 departure.
