Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has finalised his side for today's Round 13 clash against the Newcastle Knights.

Kickoff for the match is at 5:30pm AEST from McDonald Jones Stadium as Wests Tigers look to bounce back from last week's upset defeat to the Warriors.

Maguire has confirmed one late change from the side originally named during the week with Chris Lawrence — who will play his 250th first-grade game for the club — shifting to the run-on side with Sam McIntyre dropping back to the bench.

Lawrence is joined by Benji Marshall in celebrating 250 games for Wests Tigers, while new recruit AJ Kepaoa will start on the wing for his first-grade debut.

Marshall starts in the halves alongside Luke Brooks, who returns to the run-on side for the first time in close to a month, while co-captain Moses Mbye starts at hooker in place of the injured Harry Grant with Tommy Talau moving to centre.

Joey Leilua and Russell Packer both return from suspension in a boost for Wests Tigers, who are looking for their fourth straight win over the Knights in Newcastle.
