Wests Tigers can provide the following Chemist Warehouse Injury Report ahead of the club's Indigenous Round home game against the St. George-Illawarra Dragons at Bankwest Stadium.
After missing the last four games with a pectoral injury, James Roberts is clear to play in Friday's game against the Dragons having been named on the wing.
His inclusion comes with Joey Leilua sidelined after sustaining a concussion last week against the Warriors. The Samoan international is progressing through the standard concussion protocols without any problems at this point.
After suffering a contact-related foot injury at training last week, Zane Musgrove will unfortunately be sidelined for approximately the next six weeks while Russell Packer (knee) and Asu Kepaoa (knee) continue their respective rehabilitation programs.
Kepaoa is progressing well through the early stages of his ACL recovery while Packer has recommenced running drills after surgery on his knee.
Packer is expected to be available for selection in the next few weeks.
