Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has named his side to take on the New Zealand Warriors for Friday's clash at Suncorp Stadium.
After a back-and-forth contest ended in defeat against the Sea Eagles last week, Maguire has made several changes for this week’s game against the 14th-placed Warriors.
With Luke Garner (ankle) ruled out for an extended period of time, Shawn Blore will earn the first start of his career after he was named in the back row.
Michael Chee Kam also joins the bench this week with Moses Mbye shifting to centre in place of Junior Pauga, while Alex Twal returns from a shoulder knock to take the place of Alex Seyfarth (knee) on the bench.
A shoulder injury to Thomas Mikaele sees Joe Ofahengaue returning to the lock forward role, with Tom Amone joining the interchange bench.
Development player Kelma Tuilagi has been named as part of the reserves, with Jock Madden, Zac Cini and Jake Simpkin rounding out the 21-man squad.
Origin Camp confidence helping boost big Stefano's game
The Warriors, meanwhile, will field a vastly different side as they battle injuries, suspension and the return of key players to New Zealand.
Peta Hiku returns from injury and starts at five-eighth with Kodi Nikorima on the bench, while Sean O'Sullivan starts for the injured Chad Townsend. Jamayne Taunoa-Brown returns from his loan deal with the Dragons — replacing Addin Fonua-Blake (finger) — while Ben Murdoch-Masila starts for Matt Lodge (suspension).
Jazz Tevaga and Kane Evans have been named the bench, Jack Murchie (concussion) misses out while Eliesa Katoa (concussion) is in some doubt after failing his assessment last week against South Sydney.
