Brisbane Tigers name team for trial against Burleigh

Suzuki Brisbane Tigers head coach Jon Buchanan has announced his team to play against Burleigh Bears in the first of the club's two trials this Saturday, February 27, at Totally Workwear Stadium.

Kiwi international and NRL premiership winner Gerard Beale will have his first hit-out for the Tigers at fullback.

Other new faces include former Gold Coast Titan Ioane Seiuli, experienced half Darren Nicholls and former Wynnum Manly Seagulls and Souths Logan Magpies forward  Mitch Frei.

Former premiership winning Redcliffe Dolphins rake Hugh Pratt will also play in the squad.

The trial also sees a number of younger players get an opportunity to impress for a spot in Round 1's Intrust Super Cup game, including Solomona Faatappe, Zac Croft, Haele Finau and Joe Gilmore.

Dynamic fullback Michael Purcell and hooker Aaron Booth will play for the Melbourne Storm in their trail against Newcastle Knights this weekend at Albury Sports Ground.

The Intrust Super Cup trial match will take place at Totally Workwear Stadium, Langlands Park on Saturday, February 27 and will kick off at 6pm.

In the lead-up, the club's Hastings Deering Colts side will be in action against the Bears as well, with kick off in that game happening at 4pm.
