NYC Team Announcement: Round 11

Wests Tigers Holden Cup Coach Chris Hutchison has named his team to take on the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium for their Round 11 clash this Friday, May 19.

Kickoff for the match is at 5:10pm AEST as Wests Tigers look to bounce back from a tough last-start defeat to the South Sydney Rabbitohs and stay in touch with the top eight.

With Ryan Papenhuyzen and Connelly Lemuelu both ruled out with injury, Hutchison has named Toa Mata’afa at fullback, while centre Oscar Tui plays his first game of the season.

Wests Magpies SG Ball graduate Gus Garzaniti will make his Holden Cup debut at halfback.

I think they have given up…

This team will lose by 50+. A weak squad just keeps getting weaker and weaker. Can’t compete without the few stars there were.

And is this now the 7th different halfback this season? Madness.

Tigers website said “most disappointing game of the season” but coach still goes with same forwards that dropped so much ball, only inclusion is the backrower for Frain, and yet another halfback!

No size, no speed and very little talent in this year’s squad. Disappointing considering it’s the best of Wests, Balmain and arguably Keebra Park.

This team is really poor

Add Mikaele, Lemuelu, Giles, Papenhuyzen, Paseka and Suli and they would be quite competitive. Obviously Suli got a quick promotion and Paseka released and then suddenly a few injuries and bang, season’s over.

But results don’t matter. If a Mikaele and Lemuelu and maybe a few other SG ball kids like Seyfarth can get fit and kick on in the second half of the season we may get some decent prospects for next season yet.

i saw somewhere on social media that Mikaele has signed with Brisbane for next year, anyone else hear this?

Hmm.

Halftime here at @suncorpstadium and our young guns hold a strong 16-4 lead. 👍

James Tautaiolefua with a first-half double.

16-12 now… luckily their kicker keeps missing.

Tigers in again… 22-12 with 5 to go.

Full-time: Tigers 22 Broncos 12

Great result. Hopefully we can do the double.

Is that a decent sized goal kicking winger out there for the tigers?
