Wests Tigers Intrust Super Premiership Coach Paul Stringer has named his side to take on the North Sydney Bears for their Round 15 clash this Saturday, June 18.

Kickoff for the match is at 3:00pm from North Sydney Oval as Wests Tigers look to end a run of three-straight defeats against a Bears side currently sitting in fifth position.

After a tough loss to the Illawarra Cutters on Saturday, Stringer has made several changes for this week's game, with Josh Addo-Carr dropping back to the team from first-grade.

Addo-Carr's return to the wing sees Watson Heleta move back to fullback, while Holden Cup players Ryland Jacobs, Jacob Liddle and Esan Marsters have also all been named.

Holden Cup halfback Thomas Bartley will make his Intrust Super Premiership debut alongside captain Jack Littlejohn in the halves with Manaia Cherrington named at hooker.

Saturday's fixture will be the second meeting between the two sides this year, with Stringer's side looking to secure a much-needed victory heading into next week's bye.
