Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has recalled Paul Momirovski and named a 19-year-old rookie amongst the reserves for his side's Round 18 clash against the Canberra Raiders.
Momirovski has been named on the wing for the first time in his career at Wests Tigers, having featured at centre or off the bench in his four appearances to date, and takes the place of Robert Jennings in the side for Saturday's game.
The Alexandria Rovers junior's inclusion isn't the only change for Wests Tigers this week, with teenage rookie Tommy Talau named in the squad in jersey 18.
Having signed with the club at the start of the year as Development Player, Talau was recently upgraded to the club's NRL squad prior to the June 30 deadline.
The son of former Bulldogs player Willie Talau, the 19-year-old has played primarily at centre for the club's Canterbury Cup side in 2019 but is also capable of covering the wing or five-eighth with his athletic frame and ball-playing ability.

Wests Tigers are otherwise unchanged for Saturday's clash against Raiders with Robbie Farah set to play his 299th NRL game. Farah can join Marshall in the elusive 300-game club next week when Wests Tigers take on the Newcastle Knights.
For Canberra, representative centre Nick Cotric will miss Saturday's game after accepting the guilty plea for a Dangerous Throw charge in Round 18.
Michael Oldfield comes in to the side as his replacement, with the Raiders otherwise unchanged from the side that posted a big win over St. George-Illawarra.
Wests Tigers will provide an updated 19-man squad to face the Raiders on Friday afternoon at 5:30pm AEST as they travel to the nation's capital, before confirming their final team list for Round 18 one hour prior to kickoff (4:30pm, Saturday).
