Wests Tigers will field a side in this Saturday’s Jason Annear Memorial Rugby League Nines tournament at Berkeley Vale Oval.

New recruit Billy McConnachie is set to play his first game for Wests Tigers, while new part-time squad members Matt Eisenhuth, Jesse Maxwell-Offen, Jackson Williams and Billy Tsikrikas have also been included in the 17-man squad.

The remainder of the team features a mixture of part-time and Holden Cup squad members who will have their first hit-out of the 2016 pre-season.

The tournament is in its fourth year and is run by Berkley Vale Rugby League in honour of former player Jason Annear, who passed away in 2013.

Wests Tigers have been drawn in Pool A and will come up against Gulargambone Rovers, Wyong Roos, La Perouse Panthers and the Maree Kelly All Stars.

Fifteen teams will compete for the $7000 prize money in the Jason Annear Memorial tournament, with the Maree Kelly Memorial Nines also taking place on the day and will feature seven different Women’s teams.

The first match of the day kicks off at 8:40am, with the pool matches concluding at 4:00pm and the finals to follow in what will be an action-packed day of rugby league.

Entry on the day is $5 and for more information on the tournament, click here.
