I wonder now that the Roosters will be playing the WCC in Australia that they will still play us in a Foundation Cup trial

Not that they will have much time , assuming that the 1st round will be played first weekend in March and we have the 9's thrown in after this trial

Might have to cancel foundation cup this year. They seem pretty busy.

I think from now on teams should just have 1 NRL trial as a local derby. NRL 9s will take a lot of resources etc.

Another NYC/NSW cup trial can be held if needed too

So did we last season. But with 9s on don't see the point of more than 2 to be honest.

How many in a nines squad?

There wont be many.....I guess some clubs might opt for two trials, maybe those with many newer players may play three

I think that three trials gives all players a fair chance to prove their wares whether they are worthy of the Top 17

We will want as much time trying to build combinations between our 9,7 and 6 as possible under match conditions

KIRKHAM Oval will host its first ever NRL trial match in February when Wests Tigers take on western Sydney rivals the Penrith Panthers.

Camden Rams Rugby League Football Club is finalising discussions with the Wests Tigers and Camden Council to stage a National Youth Competition, NSW Cup and NRL triple-header on Saturday, February 8.

Macarthur region rugby league fans were ecstatic when Penrith Panthers general manager Phil Gould tweeted a confirmation of the trial. "Panthers Trial 1 FEB 8th Vs Tigers Camden NYC, NSW Cup and NRL," he wrote.

Camden Rams first-grade coach and former Canterbury Bulldogs player Mitch Newton said the trial would give rugby league a boost in Camden.

"We have got a big junior base and an NRL trial wouldn't just boost them, but the entire Country Rugby League Group 6 association in general," Newton said. "We have some incredibly talented juniors and having NRL players play on their home ground may just be the inspiration they need to keep at it and try to crack first grade."

Camden Rams junior secretary Kylie Willis said she hoped fans would see "plenty" of NRL stars, as the Tigers also have a trial with Parramatta Eels in Alice Springs on the same day. :?

"This is going to be a great family day at Camden ," she said.

Thats..... interesting... Splitting up the squad for two games??

Seems a bit counter-productive.

Will be great to have a game on that is literally walking distance from home for once though. :D

We will want as much time trying to build combinations between our 9,7 and 6 as possible under match conditions

Trials aren't conducted to finalise team selections anymore... Its more about getting some K's into their legs, air into there lungs and having a blow.

Potter already has his Round 1 Team penciled in, and the only way that will change is injuries or there is 1-2 players who has completely over-exceeded in the off season.

The make up of the 9's squad will determine if the NRL boys play in 1 or 2 Trials max.
Wests Tigers are wasting time appeasing the already converted, and need to look to tomorrows customer to build a club for the future.

Well that's the point Watto , we do have some injuries to players which may carry past Round 1(Keefy , Simona ,Moltzen,Sironen,Moses ) and players who have form questions next to their names (Lawrence ,Koroibete , Anasta ) and new players (Richards ,Lulia, Halatau ,Patterson ,Taupau )

That is 12 players who could be questionable come Round 1

Potter will have no idea who he will be playing in some positions at this stage in my opinion I reckon at least 7 positions are up for grabs

It will come down to form in the trials
