Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has updated his team ahead of Sunday's clash against the New Zealand Warriors.

Kickoff for the match is at 6:10pm AEDT from Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

After missing the season opener with a minor knee injury, captain Moses Mbye is firming to play his first game of the year after being retained amongst the reserves.

Having trained well throughout the week, a final decision will be made on Mbye tomorrow with final team lists confirmed one hour prior to kickoff at 5:10pm.

Chris McQueen also remains in the side as 19th Man with Josh Reynolds and Matt Eisenhuth omitted from the 21-man squad. Both Reynolds and Eisenhuth are eligible for selection in the club's Canterbury Cup side, which will also take on the New Zealand Warriors at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Sunday at 3:55pm.

Last week's club debutants (Paul Momirovski, Robert Jennings and Ryan Matterson) as well as NRL debutant (Thomas Mikaele) have all been retained in the side as Wests Tigers look to make it four straight wins over the Warriors in Australia.

For the Warriors, Coach Stephen Kearney has made a change at hooker with Jazz Tevaga named at hooker in place of Nathaniel Roache, who drops out of the side.

Isaac Luke is likely to return from injury after being brought on to the bench in jersey 22 alongside Isaiah Papali'i, who was stood down by the club in Round 1.

Chanel Harris-Tavita was the other player omitted 24 hours before kickoff and will line up for the Warriors' Canterbury Cup team against Wests on Sunday.
