Wests Tigers Assistant Coach Andrew Webster says he feels excited to be back at the Club after spending the past two years as an Assistant Coach at the NZ Warriors.

One of three Assistant Coaches working under Head Coach Jason Taylor in 2017, Webster said being back at the training facilities and around the players was exciting for him, having last coached the Club's Holden Cup team back in 2014.

"It's excellent to be back," he said. "Lots of familiar faces which is always good.

"Everyone has been really welcoming to me coming back here, and even those that I hadn't met before I left, has also been excellent towards me.

"I'm going to specifically be doing a lot of work with the edge defence this year, and just our system in defence on an entire basis. I'll be working closely with Paul Stringer who's going to be doing work with the middles, and we'll tie our systems in together so we're on the same page.

"We want to make sure that with our defence, first of all, we improve.

"But we also want to make sure that we don't want the really good things that are there in our system to disappear — we just want to tighten them up and make them better.

"And if we do that, we'll get huge rewards from making it better overall."
