Wests Tigers AND
MAGPIES IN SEVENS TOURNAMENT



A desperate
plea from organizers has led to Wests Tigers fielding a team in the Carlton Mid
Strength St Marys International Sevens competition at Western Weekender Stadium
on Saturday, February 10.



Wests Tigers
CEO Steve Noyce said organiser Tas Bateri made contact with the club pleading
for a team to be put in.



“As a
special matter to assist the game and also give some younger players a hit out,
Tim Sheens agreed to assist Tas,’’
Noyce said.



“Royce
Simmons will coach the Wests Tigers team. Wests Magpies are also playing in the
competition.’’



Wests
Tigers have a strong record in Sevens football, winning the World Sevens
tournament in Sydney
in 2004. The club still holds the trophy as the tournament has not been played
since.



The Wests
Tigers team for the St Mary’s tournament comprises of first grade players
Taniela Tuiaki and Tevita Metuisela and Wests Tigers Apprentices Damon Harth,
Matt Ryan, Kingi Akaoula, Tim Moltzen and Matt Parata.



Former Parramatta prop Peter
Lewis is in the team whilst former Roosters hooker Lewis Brown and St
George-Illawarra back-rower Tom Harberecht is also in the Wests Tigers line-up.



The Wests
Tigers squad is Rodney Griffin, Damon Harth, Matt Ryan, Lee Bennett, Taniela
Tuiaki, Kingi Akaoula, Tim Moltzen, Peter Lewis, Dave
Marando, Tevita Metuisela, Matt Parata, Lewis Brown, Tom Harberecht, Rodney
Griffin; coach Royce Simmons, manager/trainer Alan
Mair.



The competition
features teams from panthers, Western Suburbs Magpies, Valley United,
Sydney Bulls, Windsor Wolves and Doonside Roos. A NSW Koori side has also been
invited to play.



Teams from Portugal, Cook Islands, Amerika Samoa, and Fiji make up
the international visitors.



Wests
Tigers have been placed in Pool 1 with panthers and Valley United.



The opening
game of the tournament at 12.20pm sees Penrith play Wests Tigers.

Wests
Tigers then play Valley United at 3pm.

Suburbs Magpies are in Pool 2 with Doonside Roos and Sydney Bulls. The Magpies
