NSW Cup Round 16 Team Announcement

Wests Tigers NSW Cup Coach Paul Fletcher has named his team to take on Mounties RLFC in their Round 16 clash this Saturday evening at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

The match is scheduled to kickoff at 3:10pm, with NRL later in the program at 5:30pm.

A 32-16 victory over the Newtown Jets at Leichhardt Oval on the weekend saw Wests Tigers’ NSW Cup squad push their winning streak to five games in a row, and they’ll no doubt be eager to make it six against Mounties this weekend. Mounties got the better of the two teams when they met earlier in the year at Aubrey Keech Reserve, and as such, Wests Tigers will be keen to exact their revenge in front of their home fans.

Fletcher confirmed that young gun Mitchell Moses will again feature in the No. 6 jersey as he builds his way up to a potential first-grade debut, while Jy Hitchcox moves from winger to fullback to cover for Kurtis Rowe, who suffered an ankle injury last week.

Corey Brown will take Hitchcox’s place on the wing, after scoring five tries last weekend for Western Suburbs Magpies in the Ron Massey Cup against Windsor Wolves.
