Wests Tigers can provide the following update on the club’s Top 30 NRL squad for the upcoming 2019 Telstra Premiership season.
Under NRL guidelines, clubs are required to confirm a top 24 roster for 2019 with the NRL as of November 1, 2018 — the start of the financial rugby league calendar — with 29 players to be signed on when the regular season commences on the first week of March, 2019.
Clubs then have until the June 30 deadline to finalise their Top 30 squad, while also retaining between three and six players as part of the club’s Development squad.
Wests Tigers confirmed earlier this week that the club’s three 2018 Development players — Sam McIntyre, Thomas Mikaele and Dylan Smith — will all join the Top 30 NRL squad in 2019, with the trio joining Ryan Matterson and Paul Momirovski as the new faces in the side.
Moses Mbye, Robbie Farah, Oliver Clark and Luke Garner will also begin their first full season with the team following their respective mid-season arrivals in 2018.
Currently, Wests Tigers have 28 players signed in the Top 30 squad for the 2019 season, and four players signed as part of the 2019 Development squad.
