Seems that way but when your club has such a wealth of talent in the system ..it could be said this does not mean you are not able to play NRL but the opportunity has not been forth coming , I look at the unknowns that pop up at the Storm as an example.

Wests Tigers have today confirmed two player movements, with JJ Felise to depart the club and Oliver Clark to join, both effective immediately.

Felise, who was off contract at the end of 2018, has been granted an immediate release to take up an opportunity at another club.

The 22 year has played 13 games for Wests Tigers since making his debut in Round 7, 2016.

Wests Tigers would like to thank JJ for his efforts while at the club and wish him well in the future.


The club is pleased to welcome Oliver Clark, with the 21-year-old training with the NRL side today.

Clark, a Quakers Hill junior, will be with Wests Tigers until at least the end of the 2020 season.

Clark played in the Penrith Panthers' ISP Premiership-winning side in 2017 and was a part of the victorious NSW U/20's Origin teams in 2015 and 2016. He was also named in the NYC Team of the Year in 2016.

This Clarke bloke had massive wraps on him as a junior coming through...came through the same time as Twal, Felise, Tatola etc I think

I'm only guessing he was stuck behind a few quality props at panfers

So do people who've seen him play think he's more of an aggressive hard runner or a workhorse?

He's not aggressive. From his form this season he's more of a soft, sluggish work horse .

Think of a less impressive version of Eisenhuth.

Don't get me wrong, i wish him well and hopefully the 3 or 4 times I saw him this year he had a niggle or other factors impacting him.

He certainly has an impressive junior rep history. I can't say I saw him play back then so I've got no idea what his style of play was.

Ivan must have seen something though to offer a long term contract.

Hopefully he comes out and rips in on Sunday!

only 21 and a ton of time to gauge his attitude.

Fwds usually get better mid to late 20s anyway.

Welcome abourd
27-28 are usually front row peak years. Though being aggressive should be from a young are. Eg tevita pabgai Jr and viviame kikau.. We don't need more plodders.
