Wests Tigers forward Keith Galloway entered his 13th season in the NRL in 2015 and started in the front row for Jason Taylor’s side on all but three occasions. 

In what would prove to be his final stint in the NRL before moving to the English Super League next year, the Wests Tigers veteran missed just two matches through injury.

He did not have to wait long scoring his first try of the year, when the former City and New South Wales representative crossed against the Canberra Raiders in Round 7.

It was Galloway's first try in the NRL since Round 15, 2012 against the Sydney Roosters.

Galloway recorded his 200th NRL appearance in Round 15 against Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Brookvale, which was celebrated a week later at the Club’s next home game at Leichhardt Oval. He was farewelled along with Pat Richards at the Club’s final home game against the New Zealand Warriors at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in Round 25, before running out for his final game for the Club in Round 26 against the Dragons.

Best Game — Round 25 vs. Warriors at Campbelltown Stadium

In his final home game for Wests Tigers, Gallowat produced a season high 190 metres from 14 carries off the interchange bench against a big Warriors pack which also included a handy offload that resulted in a try to captain Robbie Farah, as well as 18 tackles.

In a career first, the prop forward also had an opportunity to kick his first goal, but just slightly missed the conversion from the sideline.

Slightly.

 

Season Highlight — Round 7 vs. Raiders at Leichhardt Oval

Having waited more than three years and over 1000 days, Galloway finally broke through for his first try of the year in front of a packed Leichhardt Oval crowd against the Canberra Raiders. After Curtis Sironen went close and offered a quick play the ball, a steaming Galloway burst onto a Robbie Farah pass to crash over next to the posts — a special moment for the powerful prop but also the strong crowd cheering the home side on.
