Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has named all of the club’s Representative players will take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs this Thursday night for their Round 15 clash.

With eight players in action throughout the Representative Round weekend, Wests Tigers have been boosted by their inclusion for Thursday’s important clash against the Rabbitohs at Bankwest Stadium as Maguire’s side look to build on their Golden Point victory over the North Queensland Cowboys in Round 14.

Captain Moses Mbye will feature at centre after overcoming an allergic reaction while away on State of Origin duties, with Corey Thompson named at fullback.

Esan Marsters, Benji Marshall, David Nofoaluma and Robbie Farah have all been named after their respective international commitments, with the only change to the side that of Josh Aloiai, who moves to the run-on side in place of Ben Matulino.

His omission sees Elijah Taylor add some extra experience to the bench, with the forward returning for his first NRL game since Round 8 — rounding out the interchange list with Jacob Liddle, Thomas Mikaele and Michael Chee Kam.

After making a successful return from injury in Round 14 via Canterbury Cup, Josh Reynolds has been named in the reserves in jersey 20, with Paul Momirovski, Chris McQueen and Oliver Clark also named as part of the initial 21-man squad.

Wests Tigers will update the squad to take on the Rabbitohs to 19 players at 7:50pm AEST tomorrow night, with final team lists confirmed at 6:50pm on Thursday.

Is Matulino injured or has Madge been smoking the funny cigarettes again?

Another embarrassing night at Bankwest , Liddle is a waste on the bench need a bigger body … but the legend has to get to 300 regardless.ET honestly 🙀

@avocadoontoast …or has he found a new home before the cut off date…reunion with Ivan maybe

@Snake for goodness sake, I know it ain’t easy being a slimy scale but please don’t crucify Jacob or Robbie for what’s clearly a strategic choice. Liddle’ll Get more time

I’m cool with it …the general questioning of Maguires team selection often leads to a win…

Sooooo bring on Souff’s Sidknee…

Are you ok with Matulino being left out?

So, only one prop on the bench?

@Papacito After the rubbishing so many have been giving Aloiai on the Suggestions thread he finishes up as starting prop. Looks like the club wants him to stay.

Matulino injured, or moved on?

@Cultured_Bogan That is an interesting side against a full strength Souths especially with what the raiders pack did last start .

@Telltails who knows

the club has really slackened off with keeping the members/fans upto date with players availability

apparently packer, matulino and dylan smith have fallen off the face of the earth

I think you will see that Clark will come onto the bench. Not sure what’s going on with Matulino tho.
