Rod Griffin

Wests Tigers have today announced the additions of forwards Rod Griffin and Billy McConnachie, as well as the re-signing of Jack Buchanan, as the Club continues to strengthen its playing roster for the 2016 season.

Griffin and McConnachie will join the Club on one-year deals, while Buchanan has also re-signed on a one-year deal that will secure him at Wests Tigers until the end of 2016.

Wests Tigers NRL Head Coach Jason Taylor said that the inclusion of the three players was an important move to help consolidate the Club’s depth next season.

“We’re always looking to strengthen our squad, and having these three players on board for next season will really help us do that,” Taylor said. “I’m looking forward to working with both Rod and William, and again with Jack, to help grow our team moving forward.

“All three have plenty of potential to assist us next year and will challenge the rest of the squad for playing time, which is a really positive thing for this Club.”



    • Agree 2 good signings. I liked the way they played in that state championship game. Take out the silly punch he threw and his game was good and hard. I said to a couple of tiger fans the club should go after him we can’t buy good established players so let’s get players who are good and have a point to prove.

  1. I am not a Tigers fan nor do I follow what’s happening with their roster, but I question the signing of two players that have been playing a carefree style of football. From what I have read Taylor wants a structured approach and I don’t see it coming with these two forwards. Good luck to them.

    • Chalky, yep the Ipswich team did play a carefree style but however these two players did not so much. They were hard running front rowers in their team.

  2. They are good signings if they are going to be used properly. But Taylor will want them to just play structured straight up and down footy… Strange signings from the Tigers. They certainly seem to be spending a fair bit of money recently tho, pretty odd from a team that keeps claiming to have no money left in the cap.

    It might mean that Tapau is actually gone – I guess you could prob sign 3 or 4 rookies for the money that Galloway was soaking up.
