Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has updated his 19-man squad to face the New Zealand Warriors for their Round 11 clash on Friday.

Kickoff for the match is at 6:00pm AEST from Central Coast Stadium.

Maguire has confirmed an unchanged side from the one originally named during the week, which was also unchanged from Wests Tigers' last-start win over Newcastle.

Stefano Utoikamanu and Tom Amone will drop out of the squad — instead featuring for Western Suburbs Magpies on Saturday as look to record eight straight wins in the Knock-On Effect NSW Cup — while hooker Jake Simpkin and forward Michael Chee Kam remain as part of the 19-man squad as reserves.

For the Warriors, young gun Reece Walsh has come in to the starting side at fullback after initially being named on the bench. Skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck moves to the wing to replace Ken Maumalo while Eliese Katoa joins the bench.

Josh Curran is out for up to a month after he hyper-extended his right elbow in the loss to Parramatta while rookie centre Rocco Berry (head knock) is also out. Marcelo Montoya returns from a knee injury to take Berry's place in the side.

Final team lists for both sides will be updated at 5:00pm AEST on Friday.
