Wests Tigers

Wests TigersWith the merging of foundation clubs the Balmain Tigers and Western Suburbs Magpies, the Wests Tigers were admitted to the NRL in 2000. It took only five seasons for the newly established Tigers outfit to register its first premiership in 2005, although they have appeared in the finals just three times in total.

2016 was a tumultuous year off the field for the Tigers, with the club suffering a messy divorce with long-time superstar Robbie Farah. On the field, Wests were behind the eight-ball after an early six-game losing streak, and although they were able to finish the season strong, they ended up in 9th place – just outside the finals.
