NRL Team Update: Round 10

Wests Tigers NRL Head Coach Ivan Cleary has updated his 19-man squad to take on the North Queensland Cowboys tomorrow night for their Round 10 clash.

Kickoff for the match is at 7:50pm AEST from Leichhardt Oval, Sydney.

After the team's final training run at Leichhardt today, Cleary has confirmed an otherwise unchanged side to take on the Cowboys with Tyson Gamble and Chris McQueen dropping out of the squad.

Russell Packer (knee) and Jacob Liddle (sternum) have both been confirmed to make their returns, while Chris Lawrence is also expected to play after passing the appropriate concussion protocols this week.

Elijah Taylor will captain the side from hooker with Matt Eisenhuth shifting to lock forward.

Tim Grant (18) and Malakai Watene-Zelezniak (20) have been retained in the squad as reserves.

For the Cowboys, Coach Paul Green has also confirmed an unchanged squad with prop Scott Bolton named to start the match after travelling down from Townsville to Sydney today. 

His likely inclusion is a big boost for the visitors as they search for back-to-back wins for the first time in 2018, although there is still some cover in the squad for him with Francis Molo named in the reserves.

Javid Bowen is the other player retained in the squad with Jake Clifford and Sam Hoare dropping out. 

Final team lists for both sides will be confirmed one hour prior to kickoff tomorrow (6:50pm, Thursday).
