Some might think he’s crazy but brand new Wests Tigers captain Moses Mbye believes his team should be gunning for a top four spot and has labeled simply qualifying for the finals as “mediocre”.
The Wests Tigers haven’t made the playoffs since way back in 2011.
“As far as finals go, I think it’s mediocre these days (to scrape into the finals)”, Mbye said on Tuesday.
“For some reason, our club’s been bogged down in just getting to the finals all the time.
“We really want to be one, two, three or four. We want to be up there.
“That’s our goal, we want to get deep in the finals, we don’t just want to make the finals.
“We’ve set some high standards for ourselves, we’re driving a strong culture and strong standards, and we’re really going to hold each other accountable this year.”
New coach Michael Maguire is yet to finalise his spine and who will partner Mbye, Robbie Farah and Luke Brooks with Josh Reynolds and Benji Marshall battling it out for the number six jersey.
