Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has updated his 19-man squad to take on the Melbourne Storm tomorrow for their Round 19 clash.

Kickoff is at 5:30pm AEST from Sunshine Coast Stadium as Wests Tigers look to bounce back from last week's close loss to the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Maguire has confirmed an unchanged side from the one originally named during the week, with Jock Madden and Michael Chee Kam dropping out of the squad. Tommy Talau and Jacob Liddle remain in the squad as reserves, with final team lists for both sides to be confirmed one hour prior to kickoff (4:30pm, Saturday).

Wests Tigers will have a number of new faces from last week's loss to the Rabbitohs with Josh Reynolds, Zane Musgrove and Joey Leilua all returning to the side, while Sam McIntyre earns the second start of his career and is named in the back row.

Melbourne were set to welcome Christian Welch back from suspension before the forward was scratched late due to a COVID-19 breach that saw him stood down by the club. His omission sees Tino Faasuamaleaui move in to the starting side and on-loan Wests Tigers centre Paul Momirovski join the bench in his first game back from a hand injury, while Brandon Smith and Max King also remain in the squad.
