Wests Tigers have today confirmed both NSW Cup and NYC sides for the upcoming trial match against Parramatta Eels this Friday, February 6 at Kirkham Oval, Camden.

NRL Head Coach Jason Taylor met with NSW Cup Coach Paul Fletcher and NYC Coach Brett Kimmorley to discuss players’ workload, taking into account last weekend’s NRL Auckland Nines tournament. The group have agreed to give a host of young up and coming stars the opportunity to show what they’ve got at Kirkham this Friday night.

Extended NRL squad members Dallas Graham and Andy Fiagatusa are set to headline the NSW Cup team, along with Junior Kiwi representatives Te Maire Martin and Watson Heleta.

Regular NSW Cup squad members John Sila, Michael Bullock, Inno Inosesio, Jordan Grant and Andrew Kazzi have all been named for their first game of 2015, alongside some of the Club’s most promising NYC players who will get the opportunity to play at a more senior level.

The 23-man squad that Kimmorley will have at his disposal will have plenty of new players who will pull on the Wests Tigers jersey for the first time, including Ryland Jacobs, Esan Marsters and Jaleel Seve-Derbas. Tickets for this Friday’s match are available at the gate for $5 (Adult) and Under 18s will be free. All proceeds from the gate takings go to Camden Rams JRLFC.
