Wests Tigers NYC Holden Cup Coach Willie Peters has named his side to take on the Newcastle Knights in Round 6 this Sunday, April 10 at Hunter Stadium.

Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 1:45pm AEDT as Peters' side look to build on an impressive 42-24 last-start victory over the Cronulla Sharks last Saturday afternoon.

With Manaia Cherrington returning to Intrust Super Premiership, hooker Jacob Liddle will play his first game of Holden Cup this year, with Jack Wheelhouse dropping back to the bench. 

Representative forward Ray Stone has been ruled out of this week's match after suffering a concussion last weekend, with Mark McCormack promoted to the starting side.

Wests Tigers' currently sit in ninth place on the Holden Cup ladder, narrowly outside the top eight on for-and-against. Their opponents this week, Newcastle, sit in sixth position and will be looking to make it three wins in a row when they take the field this weekend.
