Wests Tigers: Michael Maguire's side will start 1-17 after Oliver Clark and Michael Chee-Kam were the two players dropped from the squad an hour before kick-off. Josh Aloiai, David Nofoaluma and assistant coach Brett Hodgson were tested for COVID-19 on Thursday because they live in south-western Sydney suburbs that have been identified as hotspots.

Veteran playmaker Benji Marshall and young five-eighth Billy Walters are the new starting halves duo. Tommy Talau returns from a hamstring injury on the wing in place of Reece Hoffman. Hoffman and Shawn Blore were omitted from the reserves 24 hours before kick-off. Wests Tigers have won two of their past six games at Leichhardt.

Broncos: Richie Kennar will play his first game at centre for the Broncos this year against Wests Tigers on Friday night. Herbie Farnworth, who suffered a bad cork in the win over the Bulldogs, failed a fitness test on Thursday morning. Reserves Tom Dearden and Rhys Kennedy were the two players omitted an hour before kick-off. Along with Farnworth, Tyson Gamble was the other player to drop out of the extended squad on Thursday night.

Ben Te'o will start in the back row for injured skipper Alex Glenn with Joe Ofahengaue back from suspension on the bench in the only change from last week's drought-breaking win over Canterbury.

The Sea Eagles have conceded 88 points in their past three games. Abbas Miski and Toafofoa Sipley were the two players left out 24 hours before the match.

Ryan Matterson (thumb) and Blake Ferguson are both out of the Parramatta team. George Jennings (No.19) will start on the wing and Brad Takairangi (No.17) will start in the second row.
