HARVEY NORMAN NSW WOMEN’s PREMIERSHIP TRIAL - SENIOR WOMEN’s

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks vs. Wests Tigers

NSWRL Centre of Excellence, Sydney Olympic Park

Wests Tigers’ senior women’s side play their second trial match on Saturday, against a strong Sharks side who finished third last season before the competition was called off before finals due to COVID-19.

The likes of Emily Curtain and Christian Pio will be on display, after featuring in the NRLW earlier this year, with big-name signings Jessica Sergis and Kezie Apps to join the side shortly after they take part in the NRLW Grand Final this weekend.

The Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership season kicks off in two weeks' time, with Wests Tigers taking on South Sydney at CommBank Stadium.

KNOCK ON EFFECT NSW CUP ROUND 5 - RESERVE GRADE

Newtown Jets (2nd) vs. Western Suburbs Magpies (11th)

Henson Park, Marrickville  

The Western Suburbs Magpies take on a high-flying Newtown side this Saturday at Henson Park in the first leg of the Tommy Raudonikis Cup. 

The Magpies will be looking for their first win of the season, as Development Player Henry O’Kane is listed to play his first game of NSW Cup, after appearing in Jersey Flegg U/21’s up to this point.  

O’Kane joins 22-year-old former Bulldogs NSW Cup player, Frank Kuresa, in making their debut appearance for Western Suburbs in Round 5.

The Magpies take on Newtown later this season (Round 12) at Lidcombe Oval in their home leg of the Tommy Raudonikis Cup.

JERSEY FLEGG CUP ROUND 5 - U/21’s

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks (4th) vs. Wests Tigers (9th)

PointsBet Stadium, Woolooware 

Picking up their 2nd win of the season last week against the Roosters, the Wests Tigers Jersey Flegg side has a huge game this Sunday, against a Sharks outfit who also sits on 2 wins so far in 2022.

The Tigers are boosted by the returns of Kade Hill and Michael Tannous from injury after the promising young halfback and hooker both trained with the extended NRL squad over pre-season. 

The away side’s already strong forward pack is also joined by new recruit Sione Fainu, with the 20-year-old middle forward named to play his first game for Wests Tigers off the bench in Round 5.

SG BALL CUP ROUND 9 - U/19’s

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles (5th) vs. Balmain Tigers (7th)

NSWRL Centre of Excellence, Sydney Olympic Park

In one of the most exciting Pathways games of the season, Saturday afternoon sees the Balmain Tigers playing for a spot in the SG Ball Cup finals series, against a Manly side who sit on equal competition points. 

The likes of captain Cayne Nicholas (who has also played up an age group in Jersey Flegg at times this season), impressive Queensland recruit Cathane Hill and bullocking front-rower Tony Sukkar are ones to watch in this side.

A win will see Balmain return to the SG Ball Cup finals for the first time since 2019.

SG BALL CUP ROUND 9 - U/19's

Western Suburbs Magpies (12th)

BYE

Western Suburbs’ SG Ball Cup side played their final game of the season last weekend, after unfortunately missing the finals in 2022.

With an extremely young side this season, the Magpies look set for bigger and better things next year, with the likes of Ofele Lene and Faaletino Tavana still eligible for the U/19’s competition in 2023.

Queensland recruit and Australian Schoolboys Merit Team recipient Dudley Dotoi was electric and looks destined for a big future with the club.

HARVEY NORMAN TARSHA GALE CUP ROUND 9 - WOMEN’s U/19’s

Wests Tigers (5th) vs. Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks (8th)

Kirkham Oval, Elderslie 

Wests Tigers’ Tarsha Gale Cup U/19’s team takes on Cronulla this Saturday afternoon at Kirkham Oval, with a win securing their spot in the finals series.

With the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership (senior women’s competition) kicking off later this month, the likes of impressive fullback Shelby Muir and dynamic hooker Losana Lutu will be looking to make a statement and hopefully feature in that competition at some stage in 2022. 

The Wests Tigers women’s program is booming! 

HAROLD MATTHEWS CUP ROUND 9 - U/17’s

Western Suburbs Magpies (1st)

BYE

The Magpies Harold Matthews outfit locked up the Minor Premiership last week, with a rampaging performance against a strong Manly side. 

They have the bye this weekend before finals kick-off next week.

Captain Kit Laulilii, Jordan Miller, Lachlan Galvin and William Craig have emerged as just a handful of the standout performers in this red-hot side, under the guidance of Head Coach and former Wests Tigers player, Robbie Mears.

With a real chance to win the competition this year, this side is well worth watching next week at the presumption of the Harold Matthews finals series.

HAROLD MATTHEWS CUP ROUND 9 - U/17’s

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles (8th) vs. Balmain Tigers (9th)

NSWRL Centre of Excellence, Sydney Olympic Park

After injuries ravaged their season, Balmain’s Harold Matthews side play their last game for 2022 against Manly at the NSWRL Centre of Excellence on Saturday morning. 

Fullback Cameron Kanaan and skipper Keenan Lawandos have established themselves as players of the future, with the pair proving exceptionally strong performers this season.
