during the round 26 NRL match between the Wests Tigers and the New Zealand Warriors at Leichhardt Oval on September 3, 2017 in Sydney, Australia.

Wests Tigers head coach Ivan Cleary has announced his squad for the club’s first trial match against the North Queensland Cowboys at Barlow Park, Cairns.

“The reality of the first trial is that it’s a great chance for all the players to get out there and get their first run of the new year,” Cleary said.

“We’re trying to mix it up and make sure that everyone gets a decent amount of game time under their belt this week.

“It’s no secret that there’s a few positions that are probably up for grabs, so it’s a good chance for the players to put their best foot forwards in regards to that.

“These trials are going to have a fair say in what that Round 1 team looks like.”
