Simon Dwyer
Tiger for a few more years

Wests Tigers have re-signed one of the game’s brightest young back-rowers in Simon Dwyer for a further two years.

Off contract at the end of next season, Dwyer will continue to develop under Wests Tigers and Australian Coach Tim Sheens. Dwyer was recognised for his fine season off the interchange bench by being named Wests Tigers Rookie of the Year for 2010.

His bone-rattling tackle on Sydney Roosters forward Jared Waerea-Hargreaves in the preliminary final at the SFS rates as one of the best hits of the year.

“Simon is one of the next generation of quality young forwards we have at the Club. He still has plenty to learn but is developing nicely,’’ said Wests Tigers Coach Tim Sheens said.

“It shows that the junior system we have in place is working.”
