Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens has named his 22-man squad for Friday's Round 27 match against the Sea Eagles at 4 Pines Park, Brookvale.

There are several changes to the team that lost to the Roosters last weekend, with the inclusion of two teenagers who are in line to make their NRL debuts.

Kit Laulilii and Josh Feledy are preparing for their first game in the top grade after moving through the club's pathways teams, progressing from SG Ball to Jersey Flegg, and more recently playing in the NSW Cup competition.

Laulilii, a middle forward, will be the second member of Wests Magpies premiership winning Harold Matthews Cup team from last year to make his NRL debut, joining fellow Campbelltown junior, Tallyn Da Silva.

Feledy is a strong-running centre who grew up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, scoring 11 tries in 16 appearances for Wests Tigers Jersey Flegg Cup team this season.

In other team news Jake Simpkin (HIA) returns to the side at hooker with Api Koroisau to line up at halfback.

Stefano Utoikamanu has been ruled out (HIA) making way for the return off Alex Twal, who missed the Roosters' match through illness.

John Bateman has also been ruled out through injury (ribs) with Shawn Blore to start as an edge forward.
