Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named an unchanged team for his side’s Round 15 clash against the Sydney Roosters at Leichhardt Oval.

After a last-start win over the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, Maguire has opted for the same 17 for Saturday’s clash against the Tricolours but could welcome back key forwards Alex Twal and Thomas Mikaele from injury.

Neither Twal or Mikaele played in Sunday’s 29-28 win over the Bulldogs, with their potential return a positive boost for the home side heading in to Saturday’s game.

Wests Tigers were convincing 48-0 winners in their last appearance at Leichhardt Oval (Round 10 vs. Brisbane Broncos) with Saturday’s fixture the club’s final home game at the suburban venue this year.

For the Roosters, Brett Morris and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves return from injury in place of Christian Tuipulotu and Mitch Aubusson (fractured wrist) with Nat Butcher shifting to the second row.

Lachlan Lam (ankle) and Luke Keary (ribs) are out with Drew Hutchison and Kyle Flanagan forming a new halves pairing.

Freddy Lussick debuts on the bench as the Roosters look to bounce back from last week's loss to Melbourne.
