November 14, 2017

Lebanon Coach Brad Fittler has today named a 20-man squad for the Cedars’ historic qualifying final match against Tonga on Saturday, 18th November at Christchurch Stadium, New Zealand.

The Cedars arrived in Christchurch late last night in preparation for their first ever World Cup finals appearance this Saturday, which has also automatically qualified Lebanon for the next tournament in 2021.

Travis Robinson, Nick Kassis and Elias Sukkar return to the Lebanon side after missing the game against Australia last weekend.

Andrew Kazzi, Chris Saab and Bilal Maarbani have been named on the extended interchange bench.

The side otherwise remains unchanged, with Robbie Farah, Mitchell Moses and Michael Lichaa all set to line-up for the Cedars despite suffering injuries against the Kangaroos last week.

The Cedars recognise the continued support of their corporate partners, with Chalouhi the major sponsor of the Lebanese team for the RWLC 2017.

Other partners of the Cedars’ World Cup campaign include Holdmark, Dental on Evaline, Victor, Zahli, PTC, Jasara Constructions (Coach Sponsor), Trinity Constructions (Membership Sponsor) and Speedway Petroleum.

Lebanon Cedars Memberships, Team Gear and Jerseys are available to purchase now from the Official Website.
