Elijah Taylor Final Game

Obviously tonight is all about the two club legends but Elijah Taylor deserves a lot of thanks for everything he’s done at the club

When he first joined us a few years ago he improved us massively. His defence and ball playing at lock often helped us win games and he was a key leader in our squad.

As he got older and slowed down a little being a smaller forward lead to his performances slowing down but no matter what he battled through everything and gave 100% effort every time he was on the field

Never shied away from doing the tough stuff never complained about being dropped, always did his best to improve himself as a player even in his older years and a great leader at the club and a great example of how to be a professional and hard working player.

On behalf of all Wests Tigers fans, thank you Elijah for everything you’ve done for the club. Personally I’m very sad to see you go ❤

Tough bugger.

Certainly is. Best example of that I can remember is when Sam Burgess whacked him and split his head open and he jumped back up and kept running to grab another 10 metres.

Loved when he whacked the other burgess in another game too. Elijah did a lot of good stuff for us

If everyone played to the max of their ability like ET every week, we would be playing finals football most years…thanks ET love your work

Well said @JoshColeman99.
While tonight felt a little emotional knowing it was well and truly the end of an era, it also brought closure to the career of a player I’ve always respected since his signing.
I remember the very first interview he gave in our colours and it was honestly the first sign of any professionalism from one of our players in such a long time. It was such a tough period for fans at that time.
To me, he exemplified what was required at the club.

Thanks for everything Elijah, your service and leadership never went unnoticed and wish you all the best!!

So much respect for this guy.

Generally underrated for what he has done in his career.

Hope he calls it an end, as those head knocks are coming too often. Could transition well in some defensive coaching.

I am sad he is leaving. I really think he was simply born in the wrong era. 90% of his career took place when the game demanded size. Every coach wanted a large lock forward to play as an extra prop. If he played in the 1980s he would have been a legend of the game. Now, the game is actually trending back to his style of player. If he were ten years younger he would have been a gun.

Thank you Elijah. I appreciate all of your efforts for Wests Tigers. Wishing you the best for the future.

All the best. Never shirked his job like some other pretenders.

As he did again tonight, getting us not only back in the game, but ahead and well on top when he was replaced.

Well said, great clubman who always gave his all.

That photo right there just exemplifies what Elijah is all about. He’ll play through anything and give his all.
