GREATER Northern Tiger Under 16’s coach Brett Jarrett has made a “few minor changes” to his side for Saturday’s fourth round Andrew Johns Cup match against Newcastle Maitland Region in Cessnock.

The Tiger 16’s have an earlier 10am kick off at Baddeley Park as they strive to break their duck in this year’s Country Championships.

Winless in three games their 30-16 loss to the Titans in Armidale last Saturday leaves them out of contention for a semi-final berth but with plenty to play for.

“Made a few minor changes,” Brett Jarrett confirmed Wednesday evening after a ripper of an afternoon hailstorm in Tamworth.

“We had a squad of 24 originally and we’re just trying to give a few of the boys who haven’t played an opportunity.

“Five or six of the squad haven’t had a run yet so the next couple of games we’ll give them a chance as well as some of the boys who haven’t had much game time now that we are not in contention.

“It is good for all of them to get a taste of representative football. Some players might be a little disappointed they haven’t had much of an opportunity but we’re just trying to share it around.”

While the Tigers have lost all three games so far they haven’t been far off and led two of the three games at half time before second half mistakes killed their chances.

“We haven’t been beaten by much in all three games, just silly mistakes and some defensive lapses have cost us. No disrespect to the opposing teams but I think we’ve really beaten ourselves,” Jarrett added.

The Tigers have been well served by electric Scone fullback Riley Pennell, lock Brady Roser, prop Sebastian Lawler and second rower Logan Spinks in recent games with Spinks claiming the game ball with a spirited display against the Titans in Armidale last Saturday.
