Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has updated his 19-man squad to take on the Sydney Rabbitohs for their Round 16 clash at Bankwest Stadium tomorrow night.

Kickoff for the match is at 7:55 pm AEST as Wests Tigers look to continue their momentum after back-to-back victories over the Cowboys and Rabbitohs.

Maguire has named Benji Marshall to assume captaincy duties once again as Moses Mbye remains unavailable with his State of Origin duties.

Paul Momirovski has moved into the starting centre position to fill Mbye’s position.

With Ben Matulino (knee) remaining sidelined, Josh Aloiai moves into the run-on side at prop while Elijah Taylor retains his position on the bench.

Russell Packer and Josh Reynolds have dropped out of the 21-man squad named earlier in the week while Chris McQueen and Oliver Clark remain in the 19-man squad after joining the team for their final session at Bankwest Stadium today.

For the Roosters, Matt Ikuvalu and Drew Hutchison both drop out of the side with Lachlan Lam coming on to the bench. Daniel Suluka-Fifita and Sam Verrills remain in the squad as reserves, despite the latter named in the NSW U/20's squad.

Luke Keary and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves are both confirmed to return from injury.

Final team lists for both sides will be confirmed at 6:55 pm AEST on Friday.
