Young gun duo Manaia Cherrington and Nathan Milone will make their first-grade debuts tonight for Wests Tigers against the Gold Coast Titans.

Having originally been named on an extended bench, Cherrington will come into the side off the interchange bench in jersey 18 while Milone will start at centre in jersey 19 as a late replacement for David Nofoaluma, who is out of the match with an ear injury.

The duo will become the 184th and 185th players to play first-grade for the Club.

Captain of the Club's 2014 NYC side before suffering a serious knee injury mid-way through the year, Milone has made his way back into the Club’s NSW Cup side over the recent weeks, with a string of impressive performances leading to his inclusion tonight.

The 2014 NYC Hooker of the Year, Cherrington took over the captaincy of Wests Tigers’ U/20’s team after Milone’s season-ending injury, with a run of good performances leading to his selection in the Junior Kiwis’ side for the second consecutive season.

Wests Tigers would like to congratulate both players on their NRL debuts tonight!
