One of the standout performers for the Wests Tigers during 2014, Pat’s return to the NRL from an eight-year stint with Super League Club Wigan was a resounding success.

Known for his impressive kick-offs that reeked havoc for the opposition, Pat finished the 2014 season as the Wests Tigers leading try-scorer with nine four-pointers.

The Cabramatta junior has scored 2775 points over 15 seasons in first grade, with the majority of those being scored during a stint with Wigan where he won the 2010 Man of Steel Award and two championships.

Pat played alongside Head Coach Jason Taylor at Parramatta in 2001.
