FOR a player who probably displays passion when he walks through the front door, Chris Heighington is remarkably casual about the turmoil at Wests Tigers in which he was nearly caught. Many at the Tigers consider Heighington the heart of their squad and would grimace at the prospect of the back-rower being ripped out. But midway through the season, there was some chance Heighington might have been forced to exit through the back door at Concord.

There was speculation Heighington could be shipped to Penrith, along with winger Beau Ryan. The innuendo, which gathered steam as other players, Bryce Gibbs, Andrew Fifita and Tim Moltzen, actually did exit the building, was stifling, and the team was responded to it poorly.

Heighington insisted this week, before what appeared not so long ago to be an improbable finals campaign, that he was comfortable with everything that happened when it came to his future.




The man is a great Club Man and a Tiger through and through

Well said Chris, very glad you are staying a Wests Tiger.

That was an aweful time for the club.

So glad Chris and Beau are staying…with Farah they are the three most passionate tigers.
