It's been nine long, frustrating years since the Tigers last contested the NRL finals. In three of the past five seasons, the club has finished where no one wants to be – in ninth place. Last year they finished 11th.

New faces James Tamou, James Roberts and Joe Ofahengaue bring 521 games of NRL experience following the departures of club legends Benji Marshall and Chris Lawrence.

Coach Michael Maguire has handed Panthers recruit James Tamou the Tigers captaincy. It's a job the big man will relish but this season will be tough for the Tigers to crack the top eight.

Wests Tigers history

To put it bluntly, the Tigers have drifted just outside of the NRL contenders for far too long, having not made the finals in nine years. With a proven coach and a reasonably settled roster, it's time for results on the pitch. That memorable 2005 premiership triumph is now just a distant memory.

Under the leadership of Tamou, the Tigers should be more than competitive in 2021. And hopefully Jimmy "The Jet" Roberts will be soaring again with another fresh start.
