Round 9 NSW Cup Team Announcement

Wests Tigers will look to bounce back from a disappointing loss against Mounties RLFC when they take on Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in Round 9 of the VB NSW Cup competition.

Several injuries and first-grade call-ups have resulted in a number of changes for Paul Fletcher’s side, with captain Jarrod Farlow’s move from second-row to five-eighth prompting a number of positional changes across the back-line and forwards.

Asipeli Fine moves from centre to second-row; Kyle Lovett from lock to second-row, while Trent Jennings has been called in on the wing for his first NSW Cup game this year.

Manaia Cherrington continues to impress having moved over from NYC earlier this year, and has again been named in the No. 9 jersey for this weekend's clash.

Kick-off is scheduled for 3:00pm AEST on Saturday, May 10.
