All the Round 10 team news!

Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has named his 21-man squad to take on the Brisbane Broncos for their Round 10 clash at Leichhardt Oval.

After a tight last-start defeat to South Sydney in Round 9, Maguire has made several changes for Friday’s game headlined by the inclusion of Benji Marshall and Billy Walters in the halves. Having come off the bench last weekend, Marshall returns to the run-on side in place of the suspended Josh Reynolds, while Walters starts in place of Luke Brooks, who drops back to the bench.

Chris Lawrence retains his spot at centre with Joey Leilua (suspended, Round 13) unavailable, while Tommy Talau returns from a hamstring complaint on the wing.

Last week’s debutant Reece Hoffman drops back to the reserves alongside Oliver Clark, Michael Chee Kam and rookie forward Shawn Blore, while Sam McIntyre also returns on the bench after sitting out last week due to concussion protocols.

The other new face on the bench is experienced forward Chris McQueen, who is set for his first game of the 2020 season after being included on the bench.

For the Broncos, experienced forward Ben Te'o starts in the back row for injured skipper Alex Glenn with Joe Ofahengaue back from suspension on the bench in the team's only change from last week's drought-breaking win over Canterbury.

David Fifita, Matt Lodge, Jake Turpin, Kotoni Staggs and Jesse Arthars were all closing in a return from their respective injuries, but have not been named this week and will instead push for a return in Round 11 against Melbourne.

Wests Tigers will provide an updated 19-man team list at 7:55pm on Thursday before finalising their side one hour prior to kickoff (6:55pm, Friday).
