All the Round 15 news!

Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named his side for Saturday night’s Round 15 away game against the Melbourne Storm at Sunshine Coast Stadium.

New recruit Ken Maumalo will become Wests Tigers Player #246 this weekend after being named to start on the wing against the Storm.

Speedy outside back James Roberts shifts from the wing into the centres after Adam Doueihi was not named in this week’s squad following last weekend’s failed HIA against the Parramatta Eels.

Experienced playmaker Moses Mbye returns to the lineup at five-eighth after missing Round 14’s match due to a minor knee complaint and will partner Luke Brooks in the halves.

Maguire has named an unchanged interchange bench with four forwards — Stefano Utoikamanu, Shawn Blore, Tom Amone and Alex Seyfarth — selected for the Round 15 clash.

Young utility Junior Pauga has been named as a reserve after impressing for Western Suburbs Magpies in the Knock-On Effect NSW Cup this season, while Michael Chee Kam, Kelma Tuilagi and Jake Simpkin round out the 21-man squad.

For the Storm, props Nelson Asofa-Solomona and Christian Welch both return after missing out last week. Jesse Bromwich has an elbow injury and has not been named and Tui Kamikamica slides back to the interchange.

George Jennings, who missed last week due to injury, returns on the wing. Trent Loiero drops off the interchange.

Both teams will provide an updated 19-man team lists at 7:35pm Friday before finalising their sides one hour prior to kickoff (6:35pm, Saturday).
