Wests Tigers Representative Wrap

Wests Tigers had five players play representative football on the weekend, with players taking the field for New Zealand, Fiji, NSW Under-20's and also City Origin.

Here's how the weekend unfolded for all involved.

 

ANZAC Test — Australia 30 def. New Zealand 18

Despite a spirited first-half performance that saw them leading at the break, New Zealand were overrun by a strong Australian outfit to lose 30-18 in their international Test.

Debtuant Martin Taupau was superb off the bench for the Kiwis while lock forwar Adam Blair was one of New Zealand's most dominant players in a losing team.

 

U/20 State of Origin — NSW 30 def. QLD 8

New South Wales continued their domination of Queensland in under-20's State of Origin with a 22-point drubbing in their curtain-raiser on Saturday night.

Wests Tigers under-20's half Mitchell Moses had a hand in five tries for the victors, with his brilliant performance not going unnoticed by many watching on the night.

 

Pacific Test — Samoa 32 def. Fiji 16

A back-and-forth match at Sportingbet Stadium was eventually won by Samoa, who overcame a slow start and early Fiji lead to emerge with a 16-point win.

Marika Koroibete was very involved on the wing for Fiji, with strong carries throughout.

 

City/Country — City 26 drew Country 26

An incredible finish to the weekend saw City somehow snare a draw against Country in the dying seconds, having trailed their opponents for the majority of the match.

Aaron Woods was one of City's strongest forwards — leading the charge in both attack and defence — and certainly did his Origin chances no harm on the day.
