Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has confirmed that centre James Roberts will miss Sunday's clash against the Sydney Roosters after updating his 19-man squad for this week's game.

The 28-year-old Roberts — who played his 150th NRL game and Wests Tigers debut last week — will miss Sunday's game with a minor shoulder complaint.

He is replaced in the side by exciting youngster Tommy Talau, while versatile forward Michael Chee Kam joins the bench.

Jock Madden joins Roberts as the two players who drop out of the 19-man squad, with Wests Tigers to confirm a final line-up one hour prior to kickoff.
