While I personally find the SFS much more accessible and 'user friendly'; in the current environment with all the paper talk about the AFL's push into western Sydney, it makes perfect sense to move a PRE SEASON match out west to give the local kids an extra chance to see their team in action.
Let's not rehash the venue debate... For whatever reason (it may be a simple matter of Leichhardt not being available or Campbelltown becoming available) the club has moved the game out west. It's a trial game... Anyone let's worry about the game and what Sheens' strategies/selections are going to be.

I will be trying to get there as well Benji#6.
It should be an interesting game to watch.
I'm expecting to see all those guys you mentioned get a run, plus all the fringe first graders.I'd image it will be played in 4 quarters.
Last year against Parra, i think we just about sent out a fresh team every quarter as did Parra. Might be a bit different this year against a group 6 rep side thou.

After a Long off season Campbelltown sounds good ! So does the Balmain side contain the Weststigers players ? as we will attend the 3 grades if not definatly 2,roll on 2012 the year of the Tigers.

It's the main state cup team so it will have the WT players not needed for the NRL trial. I'm guessing some guys will appear for half a game for Balmain and then get some game time in the NRL. Sheens usually named 17 players and then adds more on the night doesn't he?

Should be an interesting and exciting night seeing a lot of guys go round for us for the first time.

Does anyone know for certain if the Feb 4th trial v Stingrays @ Campbelltown is going ahead. I rang the Club early last week but they were still unsure.

Balmain Ryde play against Wests Illawarra on the 5th so the unless the Wests Magpies play the Stingrays my guess is that this game probably wont go ahead.

Apparently there is a proposal to move playing for the foundation cup to an nrl game between WTs and the rorters rather than playing for the cup in a trial.

Stay tuned Happy there may be an announcement. The week of that trial sees Wests Tigers showing a major presence in the macarthur area with school visits, the trial against the rorters and the opening of Gearzone at macarthur square. I hope this isn't a one off and there are more visits t0o the area throughout the season.
