A bumper edition of team lists with Western Rams divisional trials at Parkes

Rep footy has arrived!

Group 10 clash with Group 11 in the first under 23s divisional trial in the region, a move brought on by Country Rugby League’s decision to change its rep football structure for 2017 onwards.

The Western trials will be at Parkes on Saturday, meaning a massive round of Group 10 footy is split between Friday night and Sunday.

COACH: Kurt Hancock/Brady Cheshire.

NOTE: Returning from an ankle injury, Blake Lawson adds further fire power out wide for a stacked Panthers team looking to bounce back from its round two loss to CYMS. Bathurst derbies are never as they seem, so don’t count St Pat’s out of this one.

REFEREE: Dale Harding.

Sunday, April 23:


HAWKS: 1 Jedd Kennedy, 2 Jordan Baker, 3 Jack Aumuller, 4 Sione Tongia, 5 Caleb Lewis, 6 Willie Heta, 7 Callum Mokaraka, 8 Sia Namani, 9 Jake Blimka, 10 Sam Coyte, 11 Ethan McKellar, 12 Nathan Potts, 13 Brett Morgan; Bench: 14 Viani Falaniko, 15 C Robinson, 16 Arty Shead, 17 Glen Maxwell.

COACH: Peter Hickman.

NOTE: No Afamasaga, no Smith, no Bryant, no Thompson … the reigning premiers travel to the scene of their 2016 triumph without a stack of their best players. Rota Setu returns for his first game though. Massive chance for Hawks to cause an upset.

REFEREE: Billy Greatbatch.

OBERON TIGERS v LITHGOW WORKIES at Oberon Sportsground, Oberon.

TIGERS: 1 Matt Ballinger, 2 Dan Qoriniasi, 3 Abel Lefaoseu, 4 Jackson Brien, 5 Blake Miller, 6 Luke Branighan, 7 Anton Wereta, 8 Ryan Verderlin, 9 Luke Carptener, 10 Dave Sellers, 11 Mike Ingwerson, 12 Trent Rose, 13 Blake Fitzpatrick; Bench: 14 Nathan Booth.

COACH: Chris Rhodes.

NOTE: Huge task ahead for Workies. Oberon shifts Blake Fitzpatrick to lock, Matt Balinger retains fullback spot. Tigers looking for three in a row.

REFEREE: Kevin Burke.

BLAYNEY BEARS v COWRA MAGPIES at King George Oval, Blayney.

BEARS: 1 Alex Hanrahan, 2 Ryan Oborn, 3 Charlie Mortimer, 4 Josh Rainbow, 5 Zach Stammers, 6 Dylan Battersby, 7 Josh William, 8 Will Ingram, 9 Dean Evers, 10 Travis Winanara, 11 Lochie Hobby, 12 Ricky Scott, 13 Rakai Tuheke.

COACH: Rory Brien.

NOTE: It’s only round two, Blayney’s only played one game this season, but it’s fair to say both the Magpies and Bears are two desperate teams here. Bears welcome back Lochie Hobby in the backrow while the, the visitors, the inclusion of Ron Lawrence off the bench is a big one.

REFEREE: Bryce Hotham.
