Bring on Foundation Cup says Sheens

Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens says he will be treating the inaugural Foundation Cup match against the Sydney Roosters as a serious hit-out for his players.

The Foundation Cup kicks off the 2007 rugby league season and will be played at Aussie Stadium on Saturday, February 17, at 7.30pm.

Three grades of rugby league will be contested from first grade, Premier League and Jersey Flegg.

Wests Tigers is arranging plenty of exciting activities for the day as well a membership drive for the season.

Sheens said his players were eagerly awaiting the Foundation Cup, admitting it would be nice to add another trophy to the Wests Tigers cabinet.
