Wests Tigers took over the Pitt Strett Mall in Sydney today to ramp up the Club’s Battle of the West Membership campaign.
Lote Tuqiri, Keith Galloway, Beau Ryan, Geoff Daniela, Andrew Fifita, Junior Moors and Aaron Woods took time out in between training sessions to converge in the shopping precinct to encourage people to not only become Wests Tigers supporters but sign up as proud 2011 Members.
In between handing out membership brochures and Wests Tigers stress balls, the players spoke about the importance of becoming a Club Member and crossing ‘The Line that Divides’.
The players also signed autographs while Fifita enjoyed spreading the messages over the loud speakerphone, much to the amusement of passers by.
The ‘Battle of the West’ is the third in a series of Club membership competitions and sees Wests Tigers, Parramatta Eels and Penrith Panthers in a battle to sign the most Members in the week. The ‘Battle’ runs until Friday, March 4, with the winning Club receiving $10,000 from the NRL.
The Membership drive also took part in the Five Dock shopping centre whereby Wests Tigers players Rob Lui, Chris Heighington and Mark Flanagan were joined by Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas.
