Prop Zane Musgrove has officially signed with the Wests Tigers on a three-year deal, tying him at the club until the end of the 2021 NRL season.

The 22-year old has totalled 27 NRL appearances with the South Sydney Rabbitohs where he made his debut in 2016.

Wests Tigers head coach Michael Maguire was excited to bring an exciting young prospect like Musgrove on board.

“When I worked with Zane previously and he played consecutive games I could see that he was growing into a really strong player,” Maguire told the club website.

“With more experience I can see him excelling in the future.

“He brings size, strength and skill to our pack and works hard on his defence,” he said. “I look forward to working with him to help him reach his potential.”

Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe was also thrilled to see Musgrove join the club.

“As a club we’re excited that Zane has joined us and we look forward to being able to provide him with an opportunity at Wests Tigers to pursue a clear pathway to progress his NRL career,” said Pascoe.

Musgrove made his international debut for Samoa against Tonga in the 2017 World Cup.


      • He looked promising early on but injury and a poor work ethic saw him floundering in the Intrust Cup.

        He has nowhere near the skill of Shaun Lane but it is a similar story from what I can gather. Attitude rather than talent is the difference between them taking their game to the next level.

        At least under Madge he appeared to work a lot harder so if anyone can turn Musgrove around and point him in the right direction it will be his former mentor.

        He could yet be a very welcome addition to a pack that needs size and power up front. Don’t write him off just yet.

      • You’ll find out quick enough lidcombe, was injured for most of this year he will be your starting front rower before you know it
