Back-row changes for Wests Tigers

Wests Tigers second-row forwards Chris Lawrence and Joel Edwards have both been ruled out of the Round 20 NRL Telstra Premiership clash with the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium on Sunday.

Josh Aloiai and Kyle Lovett come off the reserves bench and have been listed in the starting side by coach Ivan Cleary. The Tigers have until one hour before kick-off to finalise their 17-man team.

No early changes for the Eels, with David Gower and Peni Terepo the remaining reserves after coach Brad Arthur trimmed his 21-man squad today.
