Wests Tigers new Assistant Coach Paul Stringer says he's excited to build off a successful Intrust Super Premiership season in his new role in 2017, having coached the Club's reserve-grade side to within one win of the Grand Final last season.

One of three Assistant Coaches working under Head Coach Jason Taylor in 2017, Stringer will be taking on a new role this season with a particular focus on the middle defence.

Stringer has spent the last two years involved with the Club in different roles — featuring as the Holden Cup Assistant Coach in 2015 and Intrust Super Premiership Coach in 2016.
