NRL Team Update: Round 3

Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire has updated his 19-man squad to take on the Newcastle Knights for their Round 3 clash on Sunday.

Maguire has confirmed an unchanged side with reserves Michael Chee Kam and Russell Packer included in the 19-man squad.

Alex Seyfarth and Joseph Leilua drop out of the squad and will line-up for Western Suburbs Magpies in the Knock-On Effect NSW Cup curtain-raiser against the Knights on Sunday.

Experienced centre James Roberts is set to return to the side after missing last week’s match against the Sydney Roosters with a minor shoulder complaint, while Zane Musgrove has been named at prop after serving his two-match suspension.

Kickoff for the match is at 4:05pm AEDT from McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle.

Both sides will provide final 17-man team lists one hour prior to kickoff.
