Team News: City’s Round 19 squad



The team is in for Saturday’s clash with the Phoenix in Auckland. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.

It’s a relatively unchanged side for City this week after Erick Mombaerts squad came out unscathed from the Derby.

City will draw positives from the result last week as it looks to back up the result with a strong performance against the high-flying Nix.

Moudi Najjar, Dean Bouzanis and Connor Metcalfe return to the selection mix with the latter making a recovery from a knee injury late last week that kept him out of the Derby.

Richard Windbichler and Jack Hendry remain on the long-term injury list while Harrison Delbridge has a week remaining on his red card suspension.

City face Wellington on Saturday afternoon, kick-off 5.00pm. After the bye, City return to AAMI Park for a bumper double header on Sunday 1 March, kick-off 6.30pm. Tickets via Ticketek
