NRL Team Announcement: Round 18

Wests Tigers have named a 22-man squad for Sunday's Legends Round match against the Penrith Panthers at CommBank Stadium.

NRL Team Announcement: Round 18, 2022

There are a number of changes to the side that lost to Parramatta last start, with Jackson Hastings shifting from the halves to lock.

Adam Doueihi has been moved from the centres to five eighth and James Tamou returns from a calf injury to play his 299th NRL game.

James Roberts and Ken Maumalo both return to the side, while Stefano Utoikamanu has been ruled out through injury (wrist).

Campbelltown junior Justin Matamua has been elevated to the starting side in the second row after making his NRL debut in Round 17 against the Eels.

The home side is aiming to snap a five-game losing streak having suffered an 8-point loss to Parramatta last weekend.

Teams will be playing for the inaugural Royce Simmons Cup with funds raised at the game directed to the Royce Simmons Foundation.
