NRL Late Changes: Round 16

Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has finalised his side to take on the Sydney Roosters tonight at Bankwest Stadium.

Kickoff for the match is at 7:55pm AEST via Channel 9 and FOX League as Wests Tigers look to make it three wins in a row for the first time this season.

With Moses Mbye unavailable due to State of Origin commitments, Paul Momirovski returns to the side for the first time since Round 11 while Benji Marshall assumes the captaincy duties. Ryan Matterson's omission from Origin sees him take his place in the back row alongside Lawrence, who starts his second game in a row.

Maguire has confirmed a late change to the team originally named during the week with Thomas Mikaele starting at prop in place of Josh Aloiai.

Aloiai, who had originally been named in the front row, shifts back to the bench as he looks to cap off a strong week following his re-signing announcement.

The Samoan international is joined on the bench by last week's match-winner Michael Chee Kam, as well as Jacob Liddle and Elijah Taylor.

For the Roosters, Coach Trent Robinson has confirmed just one late change with Sam Verrills coming on to the interchange bench in place of Lachlan Lam.
