Wests Tigers Holden Cup forwards Taniela Paseka and Bayley Sironen have been named in the New South Wales U/20’s team to take on Queensland U/20's.
The match will be played prior to State of Origin Game III at ANZ Stadium on July 13.
A powerful prop forward, Paseka is an intimidating presence at 197cm and 120kg, but is incredibly just 18 years old and in his first season of Holden Cup with the Club.
The All Saints Liverpool junior came through the Western Suburbs region, and spent time in the pre-season training with the extended first-grade side ahead of the 2016 season.
Sironen, younger brother of NRL squad member Curtis Sironen, played his first season of Holden Cup last year and has again shown plenty of promise in the back-row this season.
The 19-year-old has already represented New South Wales at the Under-16's level earlier in his career, and will be keen to impress again as the Blues hunt a fifth consecutive U/20's win.
Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Taniela and Bayley on their selection for NSW!
