Team Update: NRL Round 2

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has updated his 19-man squad to take on the Melbourne Storm on Saturday night at AAMI Park for their Round 2 clash.

Kickoff for the match is at 7:30pm AEDT with live coverage available via Fox League.

Cleary has confirmed one key change already for his side to take on the Storm with Tuimoala Lolohea ruled out with a knee injury — replaced in the run-on side by David Nofoaluma in jersey 19.

Tyson Gamble also drops out of the 21, leaving Josh Aloiai and Tim Grant as reserves.

Russell Packer will formally captain the squad at AAMI Park tomorrow night.
