Wests Tigers Coach Mick Potter has revealed exclusively to Members two key changes to the side to play the Cowboys at Leichhardt Oval on Friday.

The side will welcome the return of Braith Anasta at lock forward and also Benji Marshall back into the starting side.

Anasta will add another attacking option into the mix, taking some of the pressure off senior members in the squad.

Braith will complement Farah and Marshall, while also taking the pressure off a bit, Potter said.

Its obviously a boost, a player with that amount of experience coming back always is.

It is a different tactic (playing him at lock), he will provide a few plays in the middle.

After starting the game on the bench last week against Souths, Marshall will move back into the starting side partnering Curtis Sironen in the halves.

Im back in the team starting this week and we have to win. I know what my role is this week and Ill be trying to do more of what I did last week, Marshall said.

My main focus at the moment is playing well over the next couple of weeks, anything beyond that is not on my agenda,

I want to get our team into a position where we can still make the top eight and if you have a look at it, we arent that far out.

Stay tuned for the full team announcement on later this afternoon.
