Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire has named a strong 18-man squad for the 2020 NRL Perth Nines on February 14-15, headlined by co-captain Moses Mbye.

Mbye is joined in the squad by a number of high-profile NRL outside backs, including Corey Thompson, David Nofoaluma and Robert Jennings, as well as several up-and-coming talents in Tommy Talau, Jock Madden and Alex Seyfarth.

Wests Tigers 2005 Premiership Winner Pat Richards will also return in the tournament, having played 82 games for Wests Tigers in a rugby league career spanning well over a decade.

New recruit Luciano Leilua headlines a mobile and strong forward pack named by Maguire — with regular NRL forwards Luke Garner, Michael Chee Kam and Thomas Mikaele all listed — while train-and-trialists Joseph Ratuvakacereivalu and Matheson Johns will also have their chance to impress after being included in the squad.

Former Auckland Nines winners Chris McQueen (2015, South Sydney) and Paul Momirovski (2017, Sydney Roosters) round off an experienced side, with Maguire also boasting a good history in the tournament having won the title in 2015.

Wests Tigers’ first game of the tournament will take place at 6:40pm local time on Friday against the South Sydney Rabbitohs, with their second group stage match kicking off at 1:20pm local time the following day against the Gold Coast Titans.

I like it
A great opportunity for some young lads to show their talents 😊

Momo in…

I guess that means the swap with Melb is officially off? No way he plays (risks injury) if that is still close.

No Cini 😔

No Flegg players full stop by the looks…

It’s a decent squad…

No injuries…🙏

McQueen???

McQueen must be fit to play. Don’t be surprised to see Madge get the best from him this year?

Hmm, would seem it is off then.

Neither club would risk injury to players if the deal was about to go down. It was supposed to be all signed and sealed by now.

No Latrell Mitchell for the Rabbitohs? Would have been a good run for him?

Really disappointing. Heading into the season without a specialist hooker will make things a lot harder for us.

Joseph Ratu… looking forward to seeing him in this format

That’s just about the worst squad we could have selected.

Very disappointing that few youngsters get a shot. McQueen?, McIntyre?? Just a joke.

The worst squad out of all the clubs. No pace, little penetration. Just plain pedestrian.

There is that name Matheson Johns. Big things touted for this kid. Hope he might be the smoky for this season
