NRL Team Update: Round 5

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has updated his 19-man squad to take on the Melbourne Storm tomorrow at Mount Smart Stadium.

Kickoff for the match is at 5:00pm local time (3:00pm AEST), with the New Zealand Warriors set to take on the North Queensland Cowboys at 7:30pm local time later that night as part of the NRL's doubleheader.

Having completed their final training session at Mount Smart Stadium today, Cleary has confirmed that Tyson Gamble and Tim Grant will drop out of the 21-man squad named during the week.

Both will feature in the club's Intrust Super Premiership game against the New Zealand Warriors at 12:30pm AEST on Saturday at Campbelltown, which will be broadcast live via Fox League.

David Nofoaluma and Sauaso Sue have been retained in the squad as reserves, while Ryley Jacks and Patrick Kaufusi have dropped out of the squad for Melbourne ahead of tomorrow's game.
