Tupou signed a three-year deal with the club last November having played lower grades with Canberra.

The Auckland-born 19-year-old played the first couple of rounds this season in Jersey Flegg before being elevated to Wests Magpies NSW Cup side.

Asu Kepaoa has been ruled out of the Magic Round clash (Covid) and he’s been replaced by Junior Pauga, who will play his first game of the season.

Jock Madden is the 18th man.
