Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire reveals what position he’s desperate to strengthen in the off-season

1 min read

Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire has revealed he is chasing another prop in the off-season.

While it appears the side will miss the finals yet again, there have been some signs of life through a frustrating 2021 campaign.

“I’d like another big front-rower,” Maguire told SEN.

“That’s always something you’re looking for.. a strong guy at the front.

“One thing I am looking for is the player that can take themselves from an NRL player, to the Origin arena through to an International. The reason I say that is because you need those players in finals series and grand finals.

“The more you spend playing at that level the more comfortable you are. There’s a reason they’re the best players in the competition and they’re the ones that win you the comp. It’s finding those types of players now in and amongst the group now… is it a Daine Laurie or a Shawn Blore?

“We’ve got a lot of good young players coming through.”

Wests Tigers play Cronulla tomorrow at 3pm.
