Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens has named his 22-man squad for Sunday's match against Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

There are several changes to the squad due to injury and suspension.

Missing from last week’s team are Jake Simpkin and Tommy Talau (concussion protocols), Daine Laurie (knee), and Isaiah Papali’i (one match suspension).

Shawn Blore returns to the side after missing Sunday’s match against the Knights (concussion protocols) as does Fonua Pole (knee).

Junior Tupou and Brandon Wakeham come into the side after back-to-back wins for Western Suburbs Magpies in the NSW Cup, as does last week’s 18th-man, Starford To’a.

Charlie Staines replaces Laurie at fullback with Tupou coming onto the wing, while To’a takes Talau’s place in the centres.

Pole has been named to start at lock with Blore slotting into the second row in place of Papali’i.

English recruit John Bateman has also been included in the extended squad.
