Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire has updated his squad to take on the North Queensland Cowboys for their Round 22 clash.

In a late change to the side, captain James Tamou has been ruled out with a foot injury which will see Thomas Mikaele shift to prop and Alex Twal start at lock.

Tuki Simpkins, who debuted earlier this year against the Broncos in Round 18, will return to the side and joins the bench in his place, while young hooker Jake Simpkin also earns a recall to the team as he takes the place of Zac Cini.

Jock Madden drops out of the 21-man squad along with Tamou, with James Roberts shifting to 18th Man and Cini featuring as the additional reserve.

Final team lists for both sides will be confirmed at 4:30pm, Saturday.
