Wests Tigers have announced the dates and locations for the Club’s 2014 trial matches, to be held on two weekends in February.

The first NRL trial matches for the 2014 season will be held on Saturday 8 February, with Wests Tigers’ players taking on the Penrith Panthers in Camden and the Parramatta Eels in Alice Springs on the same day.
Two weeks later the Club will head to Remondis Stadium to play the Cronulla Sharks, with five grades set to take to the park on Saturday 22 February.

The trials against the Penrith Panthers will take place at Kirkham Oval, Camden, with the NRL, NYC and VB NSW Cup sides all in action.

“South-West Sydney remains an important region for Wests Tigers, evident by the thousands of hours the Club spends in the area each year,” he said. “We look forward to a year of strong support from our fans in the region, with the trial matches in Camden to be followed by four quality games at Campbelltown Sports Stadium during 2014.”
