Wests Tigers are set to sign promising young Penrith Panthers front-rower Oliver Clark for next season.
Inside Sport understands the Tigers have targeted Clark to boost their forward stocks.

The 21-year-old prop has yet to play in the NRL, featuring for the Panthers NSW Cup team for the past two years.

Standing at 190cm and weighing in at 107 kilograms, Clark was part of the Penrith Under-20 side that won the premiership in 2015

The star of the team is the team.

Will probably mean the end of Sue and Grant in WT colours?
I think this is pretty much on the cards anyway.

I hope he is the type to rip and tear rather than a workhorse type. Anyone know?

Not sure sorry. Penrith are VERY well stocked for front rowers though so the kid probably isn't going to get a chance there anytime soon. If he's anything like Twal he'll be handy.

Watched his first stint last weekend and was very unimpressed. Made about 3 runs for 20m, and made about 6-7 tackles. As a starting prop that's really not good enough for the first 20-25 min period.

Didn't run hard, seemed very slow and lethargic across the field. Compared all the hulking hard running forwards they have he seems like the exact opposite.

Stats show he averages about 60-70m a game and 20 tackles, well down on our current props in nsw cup. Maybe harsh to judge on 20 mins, not sure how many mins he averages a game and this would influence his stats, but he reminded me of a Steve Trindall type of lumbering big guy.

Thanks for the scout. He doesn't sound inspiring from anything you've said...

Why didn’t we hold on to Junior Tatola? He’s good.

Sue and Grant are lame. This guy sounds lame too.

Let's make the Tigers great again!

I reckon Sue's 2 games at NRL level have been pretty good Donald

Even Grant played well against the Warriors

I hope Ivan keeps JJ Felise
Don't know if this will happen. JJ hasn't even got close to getting a gig in 1st grade this year with even Sue and Grant jumping ahead of him in the queue. Seems like Ivan doesn't really rate him.
