Wests Tigers have tonight announced the Club’s Team of 15 Years at a Gala Dinner at Doltone House, Pyrmont.

More than 350 guests joined the Club for the event with past and present players featuring in the Team of 15 Years.

The team consists of the best players in each position from the history of the joint venture, with the winners decided by a public vote.

More than 10,000 votes were cast over the past couple of months on the Wests Tigers website with the team featuring in a one-of-a-kind artwork which was auctioned off on the night.
