Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has finalised his side to take on the Newcastle Knights for their Round 19 clash.

Kickoff for the match is at 6:00pm AEST from Beanie for Brain Cancer Stadium in Newcastle as both sides look to bounce back from a tough run of defeats.

Maguire has confirmed one late change to the side originally named during the week with Matt Eisenhuth replacing Jacob Liddle on the bench. Liddle's omission will see Robbie Farah play 80 minutes in what will be his 300th game tonight, while Eisenhuth's inclusion also sees him bring up his 50th NRL game for the club.

Corey Thompson is confirmed to return from injury for the game after sitting out last week, while Thomas Mikaele is also right to play after a concussion in Round 18.

Oliver Clark and Luke Garner are the new faces in the starting side for Maguire's men as they look to record their first victory since Round 15, with Alex Twal and Chris Lawrence dropping back to the bench and Ryan Matterson going to lock.

Robbie Farah: 300 Games


Having won their past two matches at McDonald Jones Stadium, Wests Tigers have a good record in Newcastle with seven victories from their last 11 games.
