Wests Tigers NSW Cup Head Coach Paul Fletcher has named his Round 12 side to take on the North Sydney Bears on May 30 at Leichhardt Oval.

Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 10:40am AEST with the match to be shown live on Fox Sports 1.

After suffering a 26-14 loss to Wyong last weekend at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, Fletcher’s side will be bolstered by the return of Jack Buchanan, Delouise Hoeter, Brenden Santi and Lamar Liolevave (18th man) from the NRL side.

Tim Moltzen has been ruled out for between four and six weeks with a shoulder injury, however five-eighth Penani Manumalealii returns this week to partner Josh Drinkwater in the halves.

Skipper Joel Luani moves from the five-eighth back to hooker, forcing Manaia Cherrington to a five-man interchange bench featuring Mark McCormack; who played his first NSW Cup game last week against Wyong.

McCormack was one of four Holden Cup players (Marion Seve, Tiawharangi Aranui and Thomas Grealy) to make their NSW Cup debuts last week, with another set to get his chance this weekend in Mason Cerruto, who has been named to start on the wing.
