The Wests Tigers have confirmed nine players that won’t be with the club next season.
The club held their annual awards ceremony last night and revealed a number of players who would not be returning to the Wests Tigers in 2018.
It was already well-known that James Tedesco (Sydney Roosters), Aaron Woods (Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs) and Ava Seumanufagai (Cronulla Sharks) were leaving the club at the end of the season after signing deals with new clubs earlier in the year.
The Tigers had also previously announced that veteran hooker Matt Ballin had been forced into immediate retirement due to his knee injuries.
The Wests Tigers thanked each of the players for their individual service over the years and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
