Last updated:

The big news out of Auckland is that not one but two Wests Tigers will make their NRL debut on Sunday.

24 year-old prop Austin Dias comes into the team at the expense of James Tamou (calf strain) and will join fellow debutante Fonua Pole on the bench.

The Kiwi-born forward joined Wests Tigers in 2020 on a train and trial deal after coming across from Canterbury Bulldogs where he played both NSW Cup and Jersey Flegg.

Dias has made 13 appearances for the Magpies in the KOE NSW Cup this season, averaging 73 run metres and 19 tackles per game.

James Roberts returns for his first NRL game since Round 6 having undergone back surgery.

Stefano Utoikamanu is also back on deck after missing the past month with a foot injury.

Alex Seyfarth will start in the front row with Jacob Liddle named 18th-man.
