Bayley Sironen to make first-grade debut
Tue 22nd August, 04:15PM
Wests Tigers forward Bayley Sironen will become Wests Tigers Player #207 this Friday night when he makes his first-grade debut against the North Queensland Cowboys.
Sironen has been named to come off the bench by Coach Ivan Cleary — a deserved reward for the talented youngster who has been playing in the Club’s reserve-grade team.
Named in the NSW U/20 side and awarded the State Player of the Year in 2016, Sironen has developed well throughout the 2017 season — overcoming an injury setback at the start of the year before becoming an integral part of the Club’s 2017 Intrust Super Premiership side.
The former Australian Schoolboy will be the fifth player to make his first-grade debut for the Club in 2017 following Moses Suli, Esan Marsters, Matt Eisenhuth and Alex Twal.
Sironen will share his milestone moment with fellow interchange forward Sauaso Sue, who will become the 20th player to play 100 first-grade games for Wests Tigers this weekend.
