NYC Team Announcement: Round 25

Tue 25th August, 04:40PM

Wests Tigers NYC Holden Cup Coach Brett Kimmorley has named his side to take on the New Zealand Warriors in their Round 25 clash on Sunday, August 30.

Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 11:45am AEST at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, with live coverage via Fox Sports 1 (Channel 501) from 11:30am.

With two games to go in the regular season, Wests Tigers head into Sunday’s game in sixth position — one point clear of the eighth-placed Warriors and two points clear of the ninth-placed Newcastle Knights. When these two teams met earlier in the year at Mount Smart Stadium, it was the home side who pulled away late to record a 38-4 victory — a loss that Kimmorley’s side are no doubt keen to avenge this weekend.

Coming off a last start 46-20 win over the Cronulla Sharks, Wests Tigers will field an unchanged starting lineup for this week’s match, with forward Pio Sokobalavau returning from injury on the interchange bench in the only change to the side.

Coach: Brett Kimmorley

It’s a pretty good side. Hopefully the forwards aim up against a big Warriors pack and can control the ball this time around.

Tiges are high on confidence and have found a nice balance. They’ll be hard to top for the rest of the year.

Loving the look of this young Tigers side. They’ve hit their straps at the right time of the season

Not confident in the bloke out the back though

Kharwin has easily the best tries per game ratio of any player we’ve ever had in NYC, and that includes Koro, Nofo and even Mullaney. 20 in 13 is sensational, especially when he rarely gets passed the ball at any time other than when we’re 10-20m out from the line.

A very strong forward pack, especially with the likes of Stone not even making the bench. But yes fullback is our weakest point at the moment.

If only Brooks and Moses played in this team a little more they could have helped this team in the finals.
Combo of Brooks; Moses and Martin.

That backline and forward pack is phenominal. I know Bayley and Woods are destined for first grade but wonder what the chances for Cassell are? He looks very solid.
Real shame about the coach though.

Tyler Cassell is a loyal soldier.
Hope he makes it !

Holden Cup Tigers v Warrior

Good to see our FG Coach in waiting is big on completions…

WT 6 Warriors 6

Liddle scored for us 30m up the guts individual TRY

Seve goes in from a Martin kick which has the Commentators gushing to me it was long and Seve did exceptionally well…

WT 10 Warriors 6 …

Pretty good game of football from the Tigers so far to go in leading after being on the wrong end of the possession ledger. The front rowers are making good metres, particularly JJ Felise, he’s a machine. Seve looks pretty slick out there as does Martin and Liddle. If we can reverse the possession trend in the second half I reckon we could run the Warriors around a bit.

Outstanding game by Falise and Tatola (as per usual) , our forwards were dominating, good defense and strong tackles from Cassel. Little was very good, quick play the ball and nice solo break to score.
Very good defense in the 1st half, especially right hand side Marshall-King and Seve.

I like the look of Siro jnr jnr….bug lump and has some nice ball skills.

Two clear line breaks on the left hand side and a tasty flick pass that nearly led to a try.

Both sides look pretty gassed at the moment.
