Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has updated his 19-man squad to take on the St. George-Illawarra Dragons tomorrow for their Round 18 clash.

Kickoff for the match is at 4:10pm AEST from UOW Jubilee Oval.

Cleary has confirmed that Malakai Watene-Zelezniak and rookie forward Luke Garner will remain in the squad as reserves, with Jacob Liddle and Tim Grant dropping out to play in the club's reserve-grade side.

David Nofoaluma, Ben Matulino and Benji Marshall have all been named to make their returns from injury, while Luke Brooks will line up for his 100th first-grade appearance against the Dragons.

Meanwhile, Dragons Coach Paul McGregor has indicated  all five of his side's State of Origin representatives will back up for the game, with an extended reserves list retained to cover those players.
