I've got it on my ipod. I can't remember where i downloaded it. Have you tried googling it? Or googling Balmain theme songs?
I'm afraid i disagree on it being the clubs theme song. Its pretty awful IMO.
Eye of the Tiger is great, its a bit cliched though and getting worn. I wish they used the original instead of the cheesey Wests Tigers version. What else would be a good club song?

Eye of the Tiger should not be our official club song. It should be our fight song, played during tight games to pump up the crowd and carry the team over the line. The Tigers need a real club song, that encompasses our heritage and the people the club represents, EotT whilst a classic song doesnt really cut it.

This is something the club should work on 'an official club song' the words of which reflect a little on the past of Wests and Balmain perhaps but is mostly about the Wests Tigers of today and the future. The club should start a competition!!

I agree, we should consider the following:

1. Duran Duran's "Hungry like the wolf" but substitute "wolf" with "tiger"
2. The Wiggles "Monkey Dance" but emphasis on the verse with tiger. Imagine 20,000 people at Leichhardt or Campbelltown singing "Do the tiger..........growl!"

To answer the original post, it did used to be on the Balmain Football Club website but it seems to have vanished after the website for rejigged a year or so ago. They also had a copy of the original Balmain theme song.

FYI it was performed (and I think written by) John Swan - Jimmy Barnes' brother.

It was actually launched in 1995 to mark the beginning of the Sydney Tigers.
