Wests Tigers captain Moses Mbye has been included in the 21-man squad for Sunday’s clash against the New Zealand Warriors after missing last week’s season opener with a knee injury.
Mbye has been named in jersey 18 for Sunday’s game at Campbelltown Sports Stadium and will be assessed further throughout the week as Michael Maguire’s side look to build on their strong win in Round 1 over the Sea Eagles.
Maguire has named an unchanged side from the one that secured victory in Round 1, with Josh Reynolds, Matt Eisenhuth and Chris McQueen named as reserves.
The only change in the squad is the inclusion of Mbye, who takes the place of Jacob Liddle after the hooker picked up an ankle injury playing in Canterbury Cup.
