NSW Cup: Late Changes for R1

Coach Paul Fletcher has made a late change to the Wests Tigers’ State Cup squad for this afternoon’s season-opener against the Illawarra Cutters.

Fullback Kurtis Rowe has been ruled out of the match with injury — forcing a back-line change that sees Jy Hitchcox move to fullback, Setefano Taukafa o the wing and Asipeli Fine from second-row to centre.

Ben Murdoch-Masila will come into the squad and start in the second row.

Joel Luani will play as named, having not been called into the NRL squad.
