Joel Reddy
Two-year deal

On the back of signing Adam Blair, the Wests Tigers has also agreed to terms with two experienced NRL players for 2012.

Current Parramatta Eels centre Joel Reddy has agreed to a contract for the 2012 and 2013 seasons and Penrith Panthers prop Matt Bell will join Wests Tigers for at least the 2012 season.

Reddy has played 90 NRL matches since making his first grade debut for Parramatta in late 2005. He has established himself as one of the best defensive centres in the NRL in recent years and is also a quality attacking player.

Bell has played 104 matches for Penrith since making his NRL debut in 2006. A tough and uncompromising prop, Bell is regarded as an excellent worker in both attack and defence.

“The recruitment of one of the game’s best forwards in Adam Blair, along with the depth and experience provided by both Joel and Matthew, will blend very well with the existing and emerging talent we have in the Wests Tigers roster,” Humphreys said.
