West Coast Pirates coach Daniel Manning has named his 17-man squad for this Saturday’s SG Ball Round Six clash against the Illawarra Steelers.

Centres Porikapa Tukaki (shoulder) and Artilla Packer (wrist) drop out of the side through injury and will be replaced by Ricardo Ellison and Tuakana Hepi.

Damien Karini has been named to make his starting debut after impressing off the bench against the North Sydney Bears last weekend.
