Club calls in the lawyers

It's not all bad news off the field for Wests Tigers with Brydens Lawyers signing on as the club's major sponsor for the next three years.

It is the club's largest sponsorship deal to date and will see the company feature on the front of the jersey and both sleeves.

Wests Tigers chair Marina Go paid tribute to Brydens Lawyers principal and the club's number one ticket holder for the past two years, Lee Hagipantelis.

New club boss appointed

Justin Pascoe will take up the role of Wests Tigers chief executive in November. The former Penrith Panthers boss was unveiled as the club's new chief executive last week — two months after former boss Grant Mayer resigned.

Pascoe spent six years in the US working for organisations including Major League Baseball, NBA, Disney, Lucas Films and Nickelodeon.

Cubs finals bound

If the under 20s are anything to go by, the future looks bright for the Wests Tigers. Grand finals winners in 2012, the cubs will play the 2008 champions — the Canberra Raiders — at Allianz Stadium on Sunday, September 13, after finishing the regular season in fifth position.

Brooks faces ban

The young Wests Tigers halves pairing of Mitchell Moses and Luke Brooks will have one less game to develop their combination next year after the latter was charged with a dangerous throw in Saturday's game against the Dragons. Should he take the early guilty plea, he will miss one game.

Dene Halatau has been charged with a careless high tackle and shoulder charge and would miss one game if he takes the plea or two games if he fights the charges and loses.
