Brooks a Chance for Round 8
Wests Tigers Coach Ivan Cleary has named his side for the Round eight clash with the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Former Bulldog Jamal Idris will miss the match due to a hamstring injury, with Michael Chee Kam moving into the centre position.
Chee Kam will partner rookie Moses Suli in the centres for the first time in 2017, while Kevin Naiqama shifts to the left wing outside the 18-year old.
With Chee Kam moving from the back-row to the centres, Joel Edwards forces his way into the 17 and on the bench.
Cleary has also included half back Luke Brooks in his 21-man squad.
Brooks has not played for the Wests Tigers since picking up a hamstring injury against the Melbourne Storm in Round four and could be a late inclusion into the Tigers side later in the week.
