Finalised NRL squad travelling to Wellington
Head Coach Mick Potter has today finalised the Wests Tigers NRL side to travel to Wellington for the Round 4 clash with the New Zealand Warriors.
Tim Simona will not make the trip to Wellington after failing a final cognitive test during today’s training session. Simona sustained concussion during the 59th minute of last Friday’s victory over South Sydney at ANZ Stadium and did not return to the field.
In positive injury news, Chris Lawrence will replace Simona after passing a fitness test on a hamstring strain that kept him out of the Rabbitohs clash.
Wests Tigers Captain Robbie Farah missed today’s training session with a calf strain but is expected to play. Potter described the injury as 'improving' and will give his skipper up until 24 hours before the match to prove his fitness.
Wests Tigers will play the New Zealand Warriors this Saturday at Westpac Stadium with kick-off at 5pm local time (3pm AEDT).
