All the Round 11 team news!

There's plenty of in's and out's for both teams ahead of Wests Tigers' all-important Round 11 clash against the Brisbane Broncos this Friday night at Suncorp Stadium.

After a last-start defeat to the South Sydney Rabbitohs, Wests Tigers have been boosted by the early return of Aaron Woods (hamstring), with the captain named to start in the front row.

He partners Sauaso Sue in the middle of the field following his elevation to the run-on side, while Malakai Watene-Zelezniak also retains his starting spot following his debut last week.

With Mitchell Moses released to the Parramatta Eels, Jack Littlejohn partners Luke Brooks in the halves for the first time this season, with Jordan Rankin also named on an extended bench.

Kyle Lovett also makes a return to the interchange bench following his good recent form in the Intrust Super Premiership competition, joining Tim Grant, Josh Aloiai and Jacob Liddle.

Uncapped rookie forward Matt Eisenhuth has been named in the reserves in jersey 19, while Michael Chee Kam has been named in jersey 21, as well as in the Club's reserve-grade side.

For the Brisbane Broncos, Coach Wayne Bennett welcomes back star centre James Roberts (hamstring) into the side this week, with David Mead dropping back to the interchange bench.

Ben Hunt is also a chance of making his return from injury after being included in the reserves in jersey 18, with Kodi Nikorima once again named in the halves alongside Anthony Milford.
