Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named his 21-man squad to take on the Parramatta Eels for their Round 11 clash this Thursday at Bankwest Stadium.

After a dominant 48-0 win over the Brisbane Broncos in Round 10, Maguire has named a similar squad for Thursday’s clash with Billy Walters and Benji Marshall named in the halves and Luke Brooks on the bench.

The only change to the team is that of Luke Garner, who has been ruled out of the match after failing concussion protocols for this week’s six-day turnaround.

He is replaced in the run-on side by Michael Chee Kam, with rookie forward Alex Seyfarth coming in to the squad as a reserve.

Wests Tigers hooker Harry Grant is cleared to play after he returned a negative result for a standard COVID-19 test on Tuesday.

For Parramatta, Blake Ferguson, Mitchell Moses and Ryan Matterson have all been named to return after they sat out last week's loss to the Sea Eagles.

Moses' return at halfback and Ferguson's inclusion on the wing sees Jai Field and George Jennings drop back to the reserves, while Matterson's return Brad Takairangi reverting to the bench in place of David Gower.

2020 debutants Andrew Davey and Stefano Utoikamanu both retain their spots on the bench alongside Marata Niukore.

Wests Tigers will provide an updated 19-man team list on Wednesday night, with final team lists to be confirmed one hour prior to kickoff (6:50pm, Thursday).
