TRIAL MATCHES 2016...

Storm set to clash with Tigers in trial on Sunshine Coast
Steele Taylor

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Melbourne Storm and Wests Tigers are set to collide at Sunshine Coast Stadium in the NRL pre-season.

While the clubs are yet to publicly commit to the encounter, the Daily understands plans are well underway.

The expected match will likely attract a significant crowd, especially because of the Storm's affiliation with the Sunshine Coast Falcons.

"It's good for Sunshine Coast rugby league, that's for sure, and the region deserves it," Sunshine Coast-based former Storm star Scott Hill said.

"The last one (trial) here was about five years ago.

"I think they'll get a fair few thousand people to the game.

"They've got a stadium for it. They might have to put up some more temporary seating but other than that everything is there for it to happen."

The Storm is primed for a big year after finishing in the top-four this season.

"Melbourne will always be there (in NRL premiership contention)," Hill said.

"They've got the culture and systems in place there that always puts them in a pretty good position.

"The great thing about this year was the exposure to a couple of really good talented young players like Cameron Munster.

"You've got the big three (Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater) but they're getting a bit older every year.

"We'll have to see how Billy gets through the season injury-wise."

Melbourne's link with the Sunshine Coast appears to be getting stronger.

The club's under-20 outfit will be based here next year.

"So with them here you would think it is a smart move to have a trial here," Hill said.

The match would likely be the Tigers' second trial and there should be plenty of interest in whether Robbie Farah takes to the park.

Trial Schedule confirmed....

Wests Tigers 2016 Trial Match Schedule

Wests Tigers Media

Tue 17th November, 12:00PM

Wests Tigers have today confirmed the Club’s trial match schedule ahead of the 2016 National Rugby League season.

Campbelltown Sports Stadium will host its fifth Wests Tigers’ trial match in six years, while the team will also travel to Queensland to play its first ever game on the Sunshine Coast.

First on the schedule is the annual NRL d*** Smith Auckland Nines tournament on February 6 and 7 at Eden Park, Auckland, New Zealand.

Wests Tigers’ NRL squad will then come up against the Melbourne Storm at Sunshine Coast Stadium on February 13 and the Cronulla Sharks a week later at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, with both opponents featuring in the 2015 NRL finals series.

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe said the NRL trial matches will obviously play an important role in the preparations for the 2016 NRL season.

“The Club has been working with both the Sunshine Coast Council and the Melbourne Storm to get that trial match confirmed,” Pascoe said.

“We are really excited to be able to head out to a new area for the organisation and play a trial match, engaging with a new group of fans and corporates.

“Following on from that we will host the Sharks at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, which provides an additional match to the four regular competition games held at that ground, continuing our support for the Macarthur region.

“The Club is also pleased to confirm that all Wests Tigers’ Members for the 2016 season will have access to this match - adding even more value to the packages on offer.

“Both games are significant to the team’s preparation for the upcoming season, with a number of new recruits set to push for a position in the NRL side for Round 1.”

Wests Tigers are yet to confirm the Under 20s trial match schedule, with one game set to be played at Kirkham Oval in Camden.

On–sale dates for tickets will be confirmed closer to each match.

Malcolm Knox: What has happened this week is a pity for the Tigers, a pity for Jason Taylor and a pity for Robbie Farah, who had achieved more than the Big Four put together but was somehow turned into collateral damage. (SMH 25-26 March, 2017)
