Lebanon name squad for RLWC quarterfinal

Lebanon Team News

Wests Tigers forward Alex Twal will start for Lebanon in their first ever World Cup quarterfinal this Saturday, November 18 against Tonga at Christchurch Stadium.

Twal featured in all three of Lebanon's matches in the World Cup to date — making more tackles than any other player in the tournament — and will again start in the front row.

In other team news, Travis Robinson, Nick Kassis and Elias Sukkar all return to the squad after missing last week's game against Australia, while Andrew Kazzi, Chris Saab and Bilal Maarbani have been named on the extended interchange bench by Coach Brad Fittler.

Kickoff for the match is at 5:00pm local time (3:00pm AEDT) with live coverage via Channel 7.
