Penrith Panthers have named a 21-man squad for Sunday's game against Wests Tigers with a few changes to the team that went down 42-10 to the Dragons.

With winger Peta Hiku sidelined for four weeks with a facial injury, Dylan Edwards has been called in to the squad as his replacement in his just his second game of first-grade.

However, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak has been named as one of four reserves in jersey 19 — potentially paving the way for the Kiwi international to make his return from injury.

Sitaleki Akauola, Mitch Rein and Viliame Kikau have also been added as reserves.

For Wests Tigers, Jason Taylor has named the same 17 that picked up a Round 1 win over the South Sydney Rabbitohs, with Michael Chee Kam and Moses Suli both named to start.

Jamal Idris will come off the bench, while Jack Littlejohn also retains his spot in the 17.

Joel Edwards, Justin Hunt, Jordan Rankin and uncapped forward Wesley Lolo have been named as the four reserves as Wests Tigers look to keep their unbeaten start to 2017 going.

Kickoff for the match is at 4:00pm, Sunday from Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

Be there for our first home game of 2017 when we take on the Penrith Panthers!
