Wests Tigers will be out and about in the Tamworth community this week as they head back to the New England region in 2019.
Ahead of the club's Round 7 home game against the Gold Coast Titans at Scully Park, Wests Tigers will hold a number of community events throughout the week — catering for all rugby league fans with an array of different activities.
Wests Tigers will kick off the week with a Varying Abilities Program on Wednesday afternoon at Gipps Street Sports Field from 3:00pm. The program — which won the 2018 NRL Community Program of the Year — helps to reduce bullying towards students with disabilities by providing support and assistance to students with special needs whilst teaching rugby league skills and celebrating their differences.
Wests Tigers staff and community team will also be present at ANZAC Park Memorial gates on Brisbane Street for a dawn service memorial on ANZAC Day.
On Friday, Wests Tigers have a holiday clinic for all young rugby league fans from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at Ken Chillingsworth Oval, followed by a meet-and-greet signing session with the squad for the Round 7 game. Grab a selfie with the full Wests Tigers squad and get all the autographs you need, starting from 4:00pm.
On Friday evening, Wests Tigers forwards Ryan Matterson and Josh Aloiai will be visiting Farrah High School as part of the the Voice against Violence Program — a program which aims to assist the rugby league community in preventing violence against women and children. The initiative will run from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.
Wests Tigers Coaching staff will also take part in a Night with the Coaches event with local rugby league coaches at North Tamworth Oval from 5:30pm on Friday.
To wrap up the week, Wests Tigers Members are also invited to a special post-match function at Wests Tamworth Leagues Club from 8:30pm on Saturday.
