The pair will join Joel Edwards (who becomes Wests Tigers Player #191 with his Club debut) as the three new faces to this afternoon’s team to take on the Melbourne Storm.

Josh joined Wests Tigers in the 2015 after two seasons in the Holden Cup with the Cronulla Sharks, where he scored an impressive 28 tries in 44 games. The lightning-quick winger featured heavily in the Club’s Auckland Nines campaign to start the year — scoring two tries against the Newcastle Knights — and has continued that strong form in the Club’s Intrust Super Premiership team with four tries from five matches.

JJ (formally Jacob Junior) was born in Queensland and made his way to the Club through the Keebra Park development system at the start of 2015. A Queensland Schoolboys representative, Felise was named in the Queensland Academy of Sport U/20’s squad for 2016 and has made a strong start to the year in the Club’s Holden Cup squad — averaging 13 runs, 146 metres, 22 tackles and three tackle busts per game throughout the season.

Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Joel, JJ and Josh on their debut games today!

Be there for Sunday afternoon footy at Leichhardt Oval when we take on the Storm!
