Rear wheel, how much lateral movement is normal?

Fairly new wheel, Novatech 172 hub with cartridge bearings, seems to move laterally more than my previous wheel did. Skewer is tights, end cups fit tightly, doesnt feel like theres any play in the bearings.

It causes a bit of rub on the brakes when leaning the bike and pedalling, Ive loosened the brake a little which helps but not ideal.
