Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named his 21-man squad for Sunday’s Round 14 away game against the Parramatta Eels at Bankwest Stadium.

As the team aims for three wins in a row, Maguire has named a relatively unchanged side from the one that defeated Penrith last weekend with Maroons representative Joe Ofahengaue named to return at lock.

His inclusion sees young forward Alex Seyfarth shift back to the bench in place of Thomas Mikaele, who has been ruled out with a knee injury.

Wests Tigers are otherwise unchanged for Sunday’s game against the Eels with Moses Mbye named to play despite going off last week with a minor knee complaint. The former Queensland State of Origin utility has been named in the number six jersey for what will be the 149th NRL game of his career, once again partnering Luke Brooks at halfback.

Jake Simpkin’s return from a minor calf injury sees him named among the reserves, with Billy Walters and Development Player Kelma Tuilagi also included in the 21-man squad for the first time this year.

For the Eels, Reed Mahoney's shoulder injury sees Joey Lussick move into the run-on side at hooker while Junior Paulo has been named to back up from his representative commitments with the Blues.

Marata Niukore drops back to the bench and Will Smith to the reserves while Blake Ferguson has been named in jersey 21 with Haze Dunster on the wing.

Both teams will provide an updated 19-man team lists at 4:05pm Saturday before finalising their sides one hour prior to kickoff (3:05pm, Sunday).
