Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has named a strong squad to face the Roosters this Saturday night at Allianz Stadium.

In-form former Rooster Matt McIlwrick has been named to start at dummy-half despite being on the receiving end of a high shot that saw him come from the field last Sunday.

Chris Lawrence has been named to start in the second row though he is likely to be a late exclusion should he struggle to get through training this week.
