Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has updated his 19-man squad to face the Cronulla Sharks at Bankwest Stadium in Round 3.

Kickoff for the match is at 5:30pm AEST on Saturday, May 30.

After a strong week of preparation, Maguire has confirmed an unchanged side for Saturday's game with Zane Musgrove and Matt Eisenhuth dropping out of the 21-man squad originally named during the week. Matt and his wife Holly welcomed their first child, Max, on Thursday with both mother and baby well and healthy. 

Harry Grant will start in the number nine jersey for his club debut for Wests Tigers, while local junior Alex Seyfarth will make his first-grade debut off the bench — the pair becoming Wests Tigers Players #231 and #232 respectively.

With an unchanged lineup, Josh Reynolds and Michael Chee Kam remain in the squad as reserves who will also attend Bankwest Stadium.

Cronulla remain relatively but are expected to welcome back Matt Moylan tomorrow, with Sharks Coach John Morris saying he was "a good chance to return." 

Utility Connor Tracey and forward Royce Hunt were the two players dropped from the squad on Friday afternoon, with Billy Magoulias called in to the side.

A final call on Moylan's availability will be confirmed on game day, with the former Origin half to replace William Kennedy at fullback if he is passed fit to play.

Final team lists for both sides will be confirmed at 4:30pm, Saturday.
