NRL Late Changes: Round 22

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has finalised his team to take on the Canberra Raiders on Sunday afternoon for their Round 22 clash at GIO Stadium.

Kickoff for the match is at 2:00pm AEST with live coverage via FOX League.

Cleary has confirmed a late shuffle of his side that will see the team run out as they did in last week's win over the Newcastle Knights with Elijah Taylor moving to the back row and Matt Eisenhuth to lock.

Luke Garner drops back to the bench where he is joined by Alex Twal, Sauaso Sue and Jacob Liddle.

Robbie Rochow and Mahe Fonua drop out of the squad, with the latter to return from injury next week.

For the home side, Coach Ricky Stuart has confirmed a number of late changes with Aidan Sezer ruled out of the team in a move that sparked a number of changes. Elliott Whitehead has been named at five-eighth with Blake Austin still in the centres, while Dunamis Lui and Shannon Boyd both start the match.

Sia Soliola moves to the back row, while Junior Paulo joins the a new-look bench containing Siliva Havili, Luke Bateman and Jack Murchie.

Wests Tigers fullback Moses Mbye will play the 100th game of his first-grade career this afternoon.
