Chris Lawrence has been named in this week's squad to take on the Cowboys but will have to undergo a fitness test later this week to determine his availability.
Lawrence has been moved back to the centres with Head Coach Tim Sheens shifting Blake Ayshford to the number six spot. In another surprise move, Beau Ryan has been named in the centres alongside Lawrence, with Matt Utai slotting in on the wing.
Curtis Sironen could possibly make his first grade debut this Sunday after the 18 year old was named in Sheens' 18 man squad.
Sironen, who went to school at Holy Cross College Ryde, would become the second Balmain junior to make his first grade debut in as many weeks after Pat Politoni played his first NRL game in last week's 24-22 win against the Warriors.
Chris Heighington slots back into the 13 jersey after missing the last five matches with a broken hand and prop Ray Cashmere will miss Sunday's clash with a calf strain.
WESTS TIGERS: 1 Tim Moltzen, 2 Matt Utai, 3 Beau Ryan, 4 Chris Lawrence, 5 Lote Tuqiri, 6 Blake Ayshford, 7 Benji Marshall, 8 Aaron Woods, 9 Robbie Farah [c], 10 Keith Galloway, 11 Adam Blair, 12 Liam Fulton, 13 Chris Heighington. Subs: 14 Ben Murdoch-Masila, 15 Curtis Sironen, 16 Matt Bell, 17 Tom Humble, 18 Joel Reddy (one to be omitted).
