Team News: City’s Round 26 squad


The team is in for Sunday’s trip across the ditch to take on the Nix. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side in our Team News thanks to Lotus Living.

City’s defence will look to get back to full strength this week with the availability of Scott Jamieson and Bart Schenkeveld to the extended side.

Both players return from injury with Schenkeveld missing last week’s clash with Adelaide with a minor groin injury while Jamieson’s extended break from a toe injury looks to be almost complete, playing his last match in Round 22 against Sydney.

The duo have three session remaining to prove their fitness for the trip to New Zealand as City looks to secure a home final in the final two rounds of the season.

City take on Wellington at Westpac Stadium on Sunday afternoon, kick-off 5.00pm.
