Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has updated his 19-man squad to take on the Brisbane Broncos tomorrow night at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

Benji Marshall will formally captain the team for the first time since 2013.

For the Broncos, new recruit Jack Bird has been confirmed to make his return from off-season shoulder surgery, with the centre replacing Tom Opacic in the run-on side, while Jaydn Su'a drops off the bench.
