Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has confirmed the inclusion of two key forwards with Alex Twal and Thomas Mikaele both set to return from injury in tomorrow's clash against the Sydney Roosters.

Having originally been named in the reserves, both Twal and Mikaele will come on to the bench for Saturday's must-win clash against the Tricolours — replacing rookie duo Sam McIntyre and Alex Seyfarth.

McIntyre drops back to the reserves alongside Chris Lawrence, with Asu Kepaoa joining Seyfarth as the players dropping out of the 21-man squad.

Final team lists for both sides will be confirmed one hour prior to kickoff as Wests Tigers look to make it back-to-back wins for the first time since Round 7.
