NRL Team Update: Round 26

NRL Team Update

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has updated his 19-man squad to take on the New Zealand Warriors in their Round 26 clash tomorrow at Leichhardt Oval.

Kickoff for the match is at 6:30pm AEST with live TV coverage via Fox League.

Cleary has confirmed one change to the team originally named during the week with Elijah Taylor (shoulder) not right to return from injury in the final game of the 2017 regular season.

He is replaced at hooker by Jack Littlejohn, with his replacement on the bench not yet confirmed. Littlejohn may be replaced by Ava Seumanufagai, or by uncapped rookies Watson Heleta or Jeremy Marshall-King, with a decision to be announced one hour prior to kickoff.

For the Warriors, both Shaun Johnson and Kieran Foran have been ruled out of the match, with youngsters Ata Hingano and Mason Lino set to replace the duo in the halves.

See all the updated team news for tomorrow's game below, thanks Fowlers Carpets!

Be there for our final home game of season 2017 and help farewell our departing players!
