NSW Cup Team Announcement: Round 18

Wests Tigers NSW Cup Coach Paul Fletcher has named his side to take on the North Sydney Bears for their Round 18 clash this Saturday afternoon.

Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 3:00pm AEST at North Sydney Oval.

Fletcher spoke of his desire to see an improvement in defence this week, having conceded 70 points in rare back-to-back losses against Mounties RLFC and Penrith Panthers, and picked out the return of Jack Buchanan and Nathan Brown from representative duties as key in helping ensure a solid and stable defensive line.

Hear what he had to say about this week's team and opponents in the video above.

Be there on Sunday, July 20 when we take on the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium! There's great pre-sale ticket prices available, so get in quick!
