Wests Tigers Holden Cup side will play a trial match this Saturday against the Wentworthville Magpies at Kirkham Oval.

Head Coach Chris Hutchinson will give a host of new players the chance to impress this weekend, with only six second-year players named in the 18-man squad.

This will be the side’s second trial match this year, with a solid hit-out last weekend against the Western Suburbs Magpies.

It’s a two game program between Wests Tigers and Wentworthville, with Holden Cup kicking off at 5pm, followed by the Intrust Super Premiership fixture.

Have to admit…lot of Cubs there I’ve never heard of…

I haven’t heard of any of them (or the Coach). Who are the key players to watch?

No mention of Mikaele …

Injured perhaps ??

That side named is not our strongest so maybe he’s simply being rested… ❓

Stop being so negative Geo

Two second row forwards playing in the centres, Lui is a promising player from Keebra Park. Frain is from Balmain SG Ball… Liam Pakau is a highly credentialed schoolboy centre from Ipswich/Keebra Park. Walker is from Balmain SGBall and Bermingham is a half from Balmain SGBall/Western NSW. Kurneth will be interesting to watch being a prospect from Toowoomba or Ipswich.

It will be around 40c at Wentworthville on Saturday. Hope the young ones don’t lose too many KGs

I wouldn’t be suprised if the trial is postponed. It will crack 40 at Wenty and player welfare should dictate the game is postponed.

They could start early….I see WTs girls team in the tarsha Gale cup theyre starting 7.30am

They could all pretend theyre back in nappy brigade under 6s

Kurnoth (not Kurneth as the Tigers media continue to say) is originally from NT via Ipswich.

papenhuyzen is likely to play full back in NYC this year.
