NRL Late Changes: Round 20

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary has finalised his team to take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs tonight for their Round 20 clash at ANZ Stadium.

Kickoff for the match is at 7:50pm AEST with live coverage via FOX League and Channel 9.

After recent wins over the St. George-Illawarra Dragons and South Sydney Rabbitohs, Cleary has confirmed a near-identical lineup from the one named earlier in the week with rookie forward Luke Garner earning the first start of his career in place of Josh Aloiai, who is out with a broken hand.

His promotion to the run-on side sees Chris McQueen on the bench in place of Robbie Rochow.

Garner, along with Robbie Farah and David Nofoaluma, has been confirmed to start tonight's game after passing the appropriate concussion protocols following their knocks last week against the Rabbitohs.

Nofoaluma will tonight play his 100th NRL game (all for Wests Tigers), while Elijah Taylor will play his 50th club game following previous stints in his career at both the NZ Warriors and Penrith Panthers.

Canterbury-Bankstown will line up as per program with no late changes to the side.
