  • Wests Tigers Jersey Flegg forward Felix Smith and centre Curtis Wilson have both picked up awards at the club’s end-of-season Presentation Night this evening at Le Montage.

    Smith was named the Jersey Flegg Player of the Year for 2019 while captain Wilson was named the Players’ Player of the Year as voted by his teammates.

    Both players featured heavily for the club’s Jersey Flegg side throughout the season, with Wests Tigers winning five of their last six games of the season to finish agonisingly short of what would have been an incredible finals appearance.

    A standout amongst the forwards, Smith was also rewarded with a call-up to the club’s Canterbury Cup side for the final few matches of the season.

    Wests Tigers would like to congratulate both Felix and Curtis on their awards!

  • Western Suburbs Magpies Canterbury Cup centre Watson Heleta has capped off a strong season by taking out both awards at the club’s Presentation Night this evening.

    Heleta was voted by his teammates as the Canterbury Cup Players’ Player of the Year and selected by the club’s coaching staff as the Player of the Year.

    A regular for the Magpies over the past few seasons, Heleta was again instrumental for the club’s reserve-grade side in 2019, missing just five games during the year.

    The 24-year-old spent time at fullback, wing and in the centres, having an impact in each position with eight tries and four assists to his name for the year. Heleta also amassed more than 2,000 run metres and 66 tackle breaks, leading all Western Suburbs players for the attacking categories throughout the year.

    Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Watson on his awards tonight!

  • Wests Tigers have tonight inducted three new Life Members of the club — former players Chris Heighington and Beau Ryan as well as long-time sponsor and partner Peter Binet.

    In total, Wests Tigers have now inducted 16 Life Members, with the three joining several other former players and notable contributors in the celebrated list.

    Heighington’s induction as a Life Member of Wests Tigers comes after 16 years in first-grade, with the forward amassing more than 200 games for the club and becoming the first player in club history to reach the milestone.

    Following his debut for the club in 2003, Heighington was an instrumental part of Wests Tigers Premiership victory in 2005 and the club’s success on and off the field — playing every game of the 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011 seasons.

    He was named Wests Tigers Player of the Year in 2008 and made his representative debut for both Country Origin and the Prime Minister’s XIII team

    Heighington finished his career with time at the Sharks and Knights, with his 334 career matches leaving him as the third-most capped forward of all time.

    Ryan’s induction as a Life Member of Wests Tigers comes after 126 first-grade games — 104 of which came for Wests Tigers.

    A Western Suburbs Magpies junior, Ryan made his first-grade debut for the club in 2007 and soon became an integral part of Tim Sheens’ side with a strong try-scoring record that saw him score 46 tries in his 104 games for the club.

    Outside of that, Ryan has been a positive and engaging representative for rugby league in the media and it was that enthusiasm and charisma that made him a key and popular member of the Wests Tigers team.

    Binet Homes founder and owner Peter Binet has been involved with Wests Tigers ever since its foundation in 2000, having previously supported Balmain.

    He has contributed immensely to the club over the years as the long-term Number One ticket holder and is a proud advocate of the club’s junior pathways program.

    Binet’s involvement with Wests Tigers stretches far beyond the first-grade side, and he remains an extremely strong supporter of the club and the direction it is heading in under Coach Michael Maguire.

    Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Chris, Beau and Peter on their induction as Life Members of the club tonight!

  • Wests Tigers forward Thomas Mikaele has capped off a superb debut season by taking out the 2019 NRL Rookie of the Year Award tonight at the club’s end-of-season Presentation Night.

    Having made his debut in the club’s season opener against the Sea Eagles, the 21-year-old Mikaele played in 23 of a possible 24 games for Michael Maguire’s throughout the year — ending the season as the club’s starting prop forward.

    Mikaele took out the award ahead of fellow youngsters Luke Garner and Paul Momirovski, who were also recognised for their impressive seasons.

    A Goodna Eagles junior who came through the development system at Wests Tigers, Mikaele finished the season just shy of 2,000 metres gained with an average of 86.5 metres per game — over a third of which came post-contact.

    The powerful prop registered an impressive 92.3% tackle efficiency throughout the year while also adding 16 tackle breaks and 20 offloads to his name.

    Mikaele was rewarded with his stellar form with a contract extension that will see him remain with Wests Tigers until the end of the 2021 season.

    Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Thomas on his award!
