Wests Tigers NRL Head Coach Ivan Cleary has updated his 19-man squad to take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs tomorrow night for their Round 20 clash.
Kickoff for the match is at 7:50pm AEST from ANZ Stadium as Wests Tigers look to record a third win in succession and keep their finals hopes alive with six games remaining in the regular season.
After successfully undergoing all the necessary concussion protocols throughout the week, Robbie Farah, David Nofoaluma and Luke Garner have all been named and are expected to play against the Bulldogs.
Cleary has confirmed no changes yet to the side originally named during the week and told reporters on Thursday that the trio were looking likely to take their place in the side for tomorrow's clash.
A strong indication that Farah, in particular, should be right to go after being stretchered off in last week's win over South Sydney is the fact that young gun hooker Jacob Liddle has been omitted from the squad as a reserve player, along with utility Pita Godinet who has spent time in the No.9 jersey this year.
Chris McQueen and Malakai Watene-Zelezniak have been retained by Cleary as reserves, while Dean Pay's Bulldogs will also line up as per program with Chris Smith and John Olive named as reserves.
Final team lists for both sides will be confirmed one hour prior to kickoff tomorrow (6:50pm, Friday).
