  • Rumoured we are playing an away trial v Warriors 2nd March at Toll stadium (Okara Park) Whangarei.

    Nothing else yet…a few other teams without trials the week before…if this is legit

    Bulldogs v Wests Tigers: at Belmore Sports Ground



  • Belmore would be good. Would like to check it out as an old rugby league ground.



  • Havent been to belmore for about 8 years, went to a Dogs Magpies reggies game …still a great ground



  • Will be getting to the Raiders v Dogs in Bega. Great to have something this far down.



  • perhaps in the trial matches we will win 25-18



  • It will be interesting to see how the players have come through the pre season training.
    A lot of players would be in recovery after surgery now.
    Anyone know how the WTs players are going?
    Josh Reynolds- shoulder
    Thompson- hand
    Rochow- hand

    match at Northland Events Centre in Whangarei on March 2, 2019.

    The trial match will feature as Wests Tigers’ second trial match in preparation for the 2019 NRL Telstra Premiership season, with a strong side set to feature on the day.

    The club’s Intrust Super Premiership side, Western Suburbs Magpies, will also face the Warriors on the day as they look to build on their 2018 campaign.

    The trial match will see current New Zealand national Coach Michael Maguire face off against long-time Kiwis Coach Stephen Kearney before the two sides meet again later that month in Round 2 of the season at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

    The Whangarei match-up offers a tantalising prospect for fans with the as many as 18 current or past Kiwis potentially being on show in the game.

    Esan Marsters, Benji Marshall, Ben Matulino, Russell Packer and Elijah Taylor (who was brought up in Herekino in the far north of New Zealand) have all don the black jumper at some point in their careers, along with Warriors players Ken Maumalo, Peta Hiku, Gerard Beale, Shaun Johnson, Adam Blair, Agnatius Paasi, Isaiah Papali’i, Leeson Ah Mau, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Isaac Luke and Tohu Harris.


    Other New Zealand-born players in the current Wests Tigers squad include Michael Chee Kam, Josh Aloiai and Thomas Mikaele, who were all born in Auckland.

    Wests Tigers will confirm its full 2019 trial match schedule shortly with fixtures for the club’s NRL, Jersey Flegg, Intrust Super Premiership and Tarsha Gale sides.

  • Hmm. One trial. Is anyone else just playing a single trial? I can’t remember us playing any less than 2.

    Had a quick look on the nrl site and looks like the tigers are the only team playing one trial.



  • Righto - first whinge for the year. Why play the trial in NZ?? As a fan and member I very much enjoy going to a trial/s to watch the team ahead of the season. But hey, who cares about fans and members!



  • I think we are going to be the trend setters here, why would you need more than one trial? Most players only run on for 40 mins anyway. Good move IMO.



  • Meh. Most pre seasons we only play one trial with a full squad anyway.
