Both Wests Tigers teams have been named ahead of Friday's double-header at Leichhardt Oval.

Alex Twal will play his 100th NRL game, once again being named to play off the interchange bench.

Brent Naden has been included in the squad after joining the club from Canterbury and he could line up against his former club on Friday night.

AJ Kepaoa returns from his COVID-enforced break to play centre, meaning Luke Garner shifts to the second row and Kelma Tuilagi moves to the interchange bench.
