Penrith Panthers and Wests Tigers will play for the inaugural Royce Simmons Cup this Sunday at CommBank Stadium.
With Simmons having close ties with both clubs, the perpetual trophy has been named in his honour, and will be played for each year.
The inaugural match will be held at CommBank Stadium on Sunday, while home grounds will alternate each year.
The premiership-wining Hall of Famer played 238 games across 12 seasons for Panthers and later coached the club for eight years. He went on to spend eight seasons at Wests Tigers as an assistant coach to Tim Sheens, helping the club win its maiden NRL premiership in 2005.
the left side look clunky because IMO there is no Lauai out there
That being said we have enough forward firepower to be bashing this mob. They are a very ordinary squad and deserve their place on the ladder…maybe Ivan needs to remind all who are playing we are leading the comp because of how we execute.
Process and patience should be key int he 2nd half
Is Charlie Ferrari contracted to the NSW cup team next year cos he certainly shouldn’t be contracted to the first grade team. Now I’ve said that he will doubtless score a treble in second half. Well we can dream!!
