Lawrence back for clash with Benji’s Dragons


He’s back: centre Chris Lawrence has been named in the Tigers team to take on Benji Marshall’s Dragons in Monday Night Football.

Wests Tigers coach Jason Taylor has named his side to take on St George Illawarra in the club’s first home game of 2015 on Monday, March 16 at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

It will be the first match at Campbelltown against his old club for half Benji Marshall, who joined the Dragons midway through last season after his aborted rugby adventure.

His presence is certain to add spice to the rivalry that exists between the two clubs.

After posting a first up 19-18 win over the Gold Coast Titans last Saturday, Wests Tigers will welcome back Chris Lawrence who was a late withdrawal from the Round 1 clash with a groin strain.

Kyle Lovett will form part of an extended bench after making his NRL debut last weekend at Cbus Super Stadium, while Martin Taupau has been named to start with Dene Halatau on the interchange.

The first 5,000 people through the gates on Monday night will receive a free Wests Tigers flag. Tickets are available from Ticketek.
