Team List: NRL Round 7 vs Panthers

Wests Tigers coach Benji Marshall has named a 22-man squad for Saturday's Round 7 match against the Panthers at Carrington Park, Bathurst.

There are several players returning to the side who missed last weekend’s loss to the Dragons.

John Bateman (HIA Protocol) slots straight back into the second row, pushing Alex Seyfarth to the bench, and Lachlan Galvin returns at five-eighth after serving a two-game suspension.

Brent Naden will make his first NRL appearance since round 18 last season, replacing Solomona Faataape in the centres.

Samuela Fainu (HIA protocol) returns to the side as an interchange forward after suffering a head knock in Round 5 against the Dolphins.

Latu Fainu will make just his second NRL appearance, wearing the No.14 jersey, after being rested (hamstring) against the Dragons.

And Sione Fainu, the eldest of the three brothers at the club, has also been included in the extended squad.
