Chris Lawrence has been named at five-eighth for the must win clash against the Melbourne Storm this Saturday night at Leichhardt Oval.

Tim Moltzen, who occupied the number six position last Sunday against the Roosters, has dropped back to fullback and Beau Ryan slots in to the centres.

Liam Fulton has not been included in the 17 man squad due to some ligament damage to his left hand suffered in Sunday's game.

Despite being placed on report, Benji Marshall will take his place in the team after taking the early guilty plea.

Wests Tigers has won two out of the last three matches played between the two sides at Leichhardt Oval.

Gareth Ellis will play his last home match for the Club this week so all supporters are urged to come along and farewell a true Club legend.

We will also be paying tribute to Chris Heighington and Benji Marshall who brought up individual milestones last week against the Roosters.

Heighington played his 200th game for the Club and Marshall became the first player for Wests Tigers to bring up 1000 career points.

We are expecting a full house for Saturday's game so all supporters are advised to purchase their tickets in advance of the match to avoid disappointment on the day.
