Wests Tigers have today confirmed the club's 2019 trial match schedule, headlined by an NRL trial match against the New Zealand Warriors at Northland Events Centre, Whangarei.

In addition to the NRL trial match, the club's Intrust Super Premiership, Jersey Flegg, Tarsha Gale and newly-formed Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership teams will all play several trial matches as the club prepares for a strong 2019 campaign.

After their first pre-season under Head Coach Michael Maguire, Wests Tigers Members and fans will get to see the 2019 team in action on Saturday, March 2 when they take on the Warriors at Whangarei, New Zealand.

As the sole NRL trial match, Wests Tigers will field a strong side for the game, which could include as many as 18 current or past Kiwis in action across both teams.

The trial match will also see the current New Zealand national Coach — Michael Maguire — face off against a former coaching associate in Warriors Coach Stephen Kearney, before the two sides meet again later that month in Round 2 of the NRL Telstra Premiership season at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

Formerly known as Okara Park, Northland Events Centre in Whangarei will host its first rugby league match since the 2014 Four Nations.
