Team News: City’s Round 16 squad


The team is in for our Australia Day clash with Wellington across the Tasman. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.

Three points in the bank and a clean bill of health for City after Tuesday night as Warren Joyce prepares his side for another short turn-around against the Nix.

Dario Vidosic returns to the selection mix with the attacker closer to selection after a flurry of games came too soon for him and his hip injury.

An impressive debut cameo from Moudi Najjar also sees him retain his spot in the extended squad while Ramy Najjarine becomes another option for the final 16 that will be finalised 90 minutes before kick-off.
