Team news | Injury forces late change to Academy side

Front-rower Jack Rowntree has been ruled out of Sunday (February 17) afternoon's U18 League Grand Final through injury, with his place on the bench taken by Bob Singer.

The side is otherwise unchanged from the matchday squad announced earlier this week, which open-side flanker Samuel Eveleigh will captain and includes seven players from the Tigers team that defeated Gloucester in last season's Grand Final at Allianz Park.

Supporters can follow the action LIVE on Twitter via the club's official account from 4.00pm.
