Wests Tigers have today confirmed the club's 2019 Intrust Super Premiership squad, led by Life Member Brett Hodgson as Coach.

After an solid 2018 campaign, Hodgson will lead the Magpies along with fellow Life Member and Premiership Winner John Skandalis as Assistant Coach.

Well, have we got a decent half back?
Things went south when we lost our half last season to UK Super League.

Good to see Robson sticking around. He's our backup hooker for Liddle and Farah.

And Benji should provide enough direction for these boys at halfback...

Glad to see Hodgson coaching, hopefully he has input into the WestsTigers team with Madge. Can someone remind me why our ISP team isn’t called the WestsTigers?
Is it an Ashfield thing?
I know a lot of other clubs use there feeder team as ISP. But what exactly is our situation ?

It will be interesting to see who plays hooker in NRL and who starts in ISP. Now that we have picked up a Penriff hooker.

Wins longest title thread of the off season..

Happy to see Robson, Epere, Ratuvakacereivalu, Siolo and Heleta retained ..best performed players in ISP... often doing better than some of our established NRL stars..

Would not mind Robson getting elevated to an NRL contract...competitor ..handles a few positions
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Soni Luke is a good player.
Good signing.

Penrith Junior. Slipped through the cracks...

None of them will unless they are upgraded to an NRL contract..but they were among the better performers week in week out in ISP so happy they are still around...Robson would be my pick to do a Garner..
