Wests Tigers are pleased to announce the signing of exciting young prop James Gavet for the 2013 season.
Born in New Zealand, the 23-year-old hard running forward made his NRL debut for Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs against the Brisbane Broncos in round 23 this season.
He previously came through the ranks of the Warriors, having played in their NYC and NSW Cup teams. Gavet was named the NSW Cup Prop of the Year in 2011.
“James is a very mobile prop/second-rower with a good offload and good skills. He is looking to cement a first grade spot,’’ said Wests Tigers Recruitment Manager Warren McDonnell.
“He will add plenty of depth to our forward pack. James is in his first week of training at Wests Tigers and has already impressed NRL Coach Mick Potter with his skills and fitness.”
