Jock Madden

Wests Tigers 2018 Australian Schoolboys — Jock Madden, Tommy Talau and Zac Cini — have continued their good form with starring roles to keep their unbeaten start to the tour in tact.

After helping the green and gold to a stunning 92-0 win over England Colleges to begin the tour, the trio continued their impressive performances with a gritty 30-22 win over Yorkshire Academy midweek before trouncing Lancashire Academy 30-18 to remain unbeaten through the first three games of the tour.

A 2020 Development Player, Cini took his tour tally to six in two matches when he bagged another double against Yorkshire while Talau, a 2019 Development Player, also crossed in the win before being named Man of the Match in Game Three.

Madden also landed a number of goals in the respective matches.
