ISP Team List
Wests Tigers Intrust Super Premiership Coach David Heath has named his team to take on the Newcastle Knights this Saturday afternoon for their Round 9 clash.

Kickoff for the match is at 2:15pm AEST as part of a three-game program at Leichhardt Oval, with the Club’s Holden Cup and NRL teams to feature later on in the day.

After a last-start win over the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles, Heath has named a strong side to take on the Knights this Saturday with a number of key changes to note.

Justin Hunt returns to the side at fullback, with Watson Heleta shifting back to the centres where he played for the Junior Kiwis earlier in his career. Captain Nathan Milone moves to the wing, while Jack Littlejohn will partner Jordan Rankin in the halves.

Wesley Lolo has also earned a starting spot in the front row after a string of impressive performances, while Jordan Grant has been named to return from injury off the bench.

Tatola from extended first grade squad to reggies bench. What’s happening there?

Team lists really don’t mean much these days…

Will probably start for Felise who will replace Grant in FG…

Might be a smoky to be called up to FG and replace Grant.

Not named in the FG 21 so he can’t…JJ Felise …Yep…

Good to see heleta in the centre and hunt not a half back.

Not sure why the sudden move of Heleta to centres. Still a pretty strong looking side though

Who is Luke Garner?
Did we sign him recently?

From my understanding Esan Marsters was suppose to be the next up and coming NRL player and we had to stop other clubs from taking him.

I also thought he was a second rower and could solve this weak NRL position.

Any updates from Forum members who follow State Cup.

Is he good enough to jag a NRL spot in the future and what position?

Yeh came across from Roosters from memory. Was in Manly’s NYC side. I believe he was a back rower in NYC.

Has been played at centre recently, but surely only as we are really light on there.

Played in the Centres since Round 2…More to do with the amount of back rowers available in ISP …Lovett Edwards Cox Sironen Williams Eisenhuth of that bunch Marsters is best suited out of any of them to play in the centres…has great footwork for a bigger guy…last 3 weeks has gone really well…

With Watene-Zelezniak now at the Club hopefully Esan can go back into the pack…

Whats Lovett up to these days?

Hasn’t had much of a look this year … thankfully.

Will we see him in grade again?
