Wests Tigers has today announced the club's initial squad for the 2019 Tarsha Gale competition as the club looks to build on its success in the 2018 season just passed.
After a winless debut season in 2017, Wests Tigers came within one game of the 2018 Grand Final in what was a rousing success for the club. The 2019 squad will see a number of players return from that squad, as well as a number of girls who participated in the U/16's Lisa Fiaola Challenge earlier in the year.
All three areas — Balmain, Western Suburbs and Group 6 — are represented in the initial squad which shows the growing strength of the women's game across the Wests Tigers geographical footprint.
The Wests Tigers would like to thank all girls who trialled for the team and congratulate those listed below.
The program will officially begin in November 2018 for pre-season training ahead of the 2019 season.
Please note this is an initial squad and players can be added or removed as necessary.
