Wests Tigers’ slick centre Tim Simona says he’s ready for the cold as Wests prepare for take on Canberra tonight in the freezing nation’s capital.
“It’s going to be my first game playing there,” Simona said.
“I hear it’s going to be pretty cold, but I’m used to it growing up from New Zealand.
“It’s pretty cold there so it’s similar weather to what we should get on Monday night.”
Simona added he was excited to come up against Samoan representative Joey Leilua.
“I’m pretty good mates with Joey,” he said.
“So it’s going to be a pretty good matchup again this week.
“Hopefully we can have a good battle against each other, but I just want to put a good performances in and help the boys out to get a good win.”
