Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire has named his 24-man squad for Saturday’s Round 9 clash against Manly Sea Eagles at 4 Pines Park, Brookvale.
Stefano Utoikamanu, Jake Simpkin and Ken Maumalo return to the squad following injury, with utility Tyrone Peachey added to the bench.
Utoikamanu hasn't played since late March following an ankle injury in Round 3 against the Warriors, which required surgery.
