Wests Tigers confirm 2022 NSW Cup squad

Wests Tigers are pleased to confirm the club’s Knock-On NSW Cup squad for 2022, with Wayne Lambkin named as coach for the upcoming season.

Lambkin — the club’s former Jersey Flegg coach — will oversee the reserve grade side, which will wear the Western Suburbs Magpies colours again in 2022.

After a strong season that saw the team second on the ladder when the competition was halted in 2021, the Magpies will be hoping for another impressive campaign with a number of new local juniors promoted to the squad.

Nine of the NSW Cup squad members are on NRL train-and-trial deals and are currently training with the NRL squad for pre-season.
