Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named his side to take on the Melbourne Storm this Saturday at Sunshine Coast Stadium.

With Luke Brooks suspended for one match, Josh Reynolds returns to the run-on side and will start at five-eighth alongside captain Benji Marshall in the halves. Marshall will once again captain the side with Moses Mbye sidelined, while Joseph Leilua returns from an ankle injury to take his place in the centres.

Sam McIntyre earns a start in the back row with Luke Garner dropping back to the bench, while Zane Musgrove returns for his first game since picking up an injury in Round 6 against the North Queensland Cowboys.

Rookie halfback Jock Madden has been named on the extended bench alongside Tommy Talau, Jacob Liddle and Michael Chee Kam.

For the home side, Ryan Papenhuyzen remains on the sideline with Nicho Hynes named again at fullback. Christian Welch returns from suspension to start in the front row, while Brandon Smith and Paul Momirovski are both a chance to also make their return from injury after being named among the reserves.

Both teams will update their squads at 5:30pm, Friday before finalising their lineups one hour prior to kickoff at 4:30pm, Saturday.
