It was deja vu for the Tigers in 2021, as promises that this would be the season things turned around once again rang hollow. Can the return of premiership-winning coach Tim Sheens in an advisory role vault the club up the ladder?
Jackson Hastings returns to the NRL after a highly successful stint in England's Super League that saw him win the Man of Steel (best in competition) award. The western suburbs faithful will be praying he can bring his red hot form Down Under.
The Tigers don't have too many major off-season losses to report, but the fact remains this roster simply doesn't seem to have the talent to reach the top 8. The long drought may continue for the joint-venture club.
How to watch Wests Tigers NRL matches
Considering the Tigers' trough, it's not exactly surprising they'll have just 9 games on Channel 9 in 2022. That means if you want to catch the Tigers this season, you will need to strongly consider a Foxtel or Kayo Sports subscription to catch the other 15.
Subscriptions start at $25 a month, which allows viewing on only 1 screen at a time. For $27.50 a month that gives you access to 2 screens at once. There is also a Premium subscription for $35 a month and that permits viewing on 3 simultaneous streams. It also has a number of features such as SplitView, with which you can watch 4 sports at once, Interactive Stats, Kayo Minis and No Spoilers.

Wests Tigers squad
Wests Tigers history
The Wests Tigers are the result of a 1999 merger between the Balmain Tigers and Western Suburbs Magpies. They play their home games across 3 grounds: Leichhardt Oval, Campbelltown Stadium and Western Sydney Stadium.
To put it bluntly, the Tigers have drifted just outside of the NRL contenders for far too long, having not made the finals in 10 years. With that memorable 2005 premiership triumph a distant memory, it's well past time for newfound success on the pitch.
The Tigers will be hoping pieces like Hastings and Utoikamanu can ignite a strong season, but the unfortunate reality is another finals miss is more likely than not.
