Jacob Liddle made his senior debut for the Wests Tigers in 2016, and the 22-year-old will be staying at the club until at least the conclusion of the 2021 season.

After a strong rookie season in 2017, seeing him take home the Tigers' rookie of the year award, Liddle has managed 36 games and scored five times for the club.

The Tigers are sitting inside the top eight and play the lowly Bulldogs this week which could go a long way to securing a finals berth.

Liddle was delighted to re-sign for his boyhood club and sighted how the team was moving forward under Michael Maguire's guidance.

“It’s great to stay here — I’m really happy with the club at the moment,” Liddle told the club's website.

“This team is definitely going in the right direction with Michael Maguire and the team is playing really well as a result and I just want to keep being a part of it.

“I know there’s a big opportunity for me now going forward, but there’s also a big opportunity this year to keep contributing where I can. Our team is in a great position and I want to make sure I keep doing everything I can to help with that.”

A fan favourite for the club, the news comes at a good time for the club with five games to go in the NRL season.


  1. I am a mad Tigers fan, but Jacob, is not the answer to replacing Robie Farrah, we should be chasing Apisai Koroisau!
