Shawn Blore will officially become Wests Tigers Player #235 tonight when he makes his first-grade debut against the Parramatta Eels.
The 19-year-old has been named as a late inclusion on to the bench for Thursday's Round 11 clash against the Eels — becoming the fourth player to make their NRL debut and the 10th player to make their club debut for Wests Tigers this year.
Blore joined Wests Tigers earlier this season after being granted an immediate release for the Penrith Panthers, with whom he played his junior football.
A junior representative standout, Blore joined the club with strong credentials after captaining the Panthers' SG Ball side to a National Championship title in 2018 before achieving success with the NSW U/18’s and Junior Kangaroos later that year.
Capable of playing either second row or lock forward, Blore cuts an imposing figure for a teenager — topping the scales at 108kg and 191cm tall.
Wests Tigers would like to congratulate Shawn on his NRL debut!
