Team List: NRL Round 5 vs Dolphins

Wests Tigers coach Benji Marshall has named a 22-man squad for Saturday's Round 5 match against the Dolphins.

There is one forced change to the starting lineup following Easter Monday’s win over the Eels, and a couple of changes to the bench.

Jayden Sullivan will start at five-eighth replacing Lachlan Galvin (suspension) with Latu Fainu to make his NRL debut as the team's new No.14.

Fainu will be joined on the interchange bench by older brother Samuela, who made his first appearance for Wests Tigers in the team’s season-opener in Canberra.

Latu will become Wests Tigers Player #282 and will be the third player to make his NRL debut for Wests Tigers this season, following Galvin, and Solomona Faataape.

Alex Twal has also been added to the bench after being rested in Round 4 (HIA protocol).
