Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has updated his squad to take on the Newcastle Knights on Sunday, July 2 for their Round 17 clash at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Kickoff for the match is at 2:00pm AEST, with live coverage via Fox League (Ch.502).

After missing last week's match against the Gold Coast Titans with an ankle injury, James Tedesco has again been ruled out of tomorrow's match. His absence sees last week's change of Kevin Naiqama going to fullback and Malakai Watene-Zelezniak returning to the wing.

Uncapped rookie forward Alex Twal could be in line to make his first-grade debut after being retained as part of the 19-man squad, which will be cut to 17 players one hour prior to kickoff.
