Late Changes: Holden Cup Round 8

NYC Late Changes

Wests Tigers Holden Cup Coach Chris Hutchison has finalised his team to take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in their Round 8 clash this afternoon.

Kickoff for the match is at 1:45pm AEST from ANZ Stadium, Sydney.

Hutchison has confirmed a number of late changes for his side, with halfback Blake Higgins ruled out. He is replaced by Hosea Leuea, who partners Josh Bermingham in the halves.

Originally named to start on the wing, Connelly Lemuelu will also start at fullback for the first time this year, having progressed through the Keebra Park system as a fullback.

Western Suburbs junior James Tautaiolefua makes his debut on the wing.
