Wests Tigers will spend the upcoming week in Tamworth as the team ramps up its preparations for the 2021 NRL season.
Having developed a rich connection with the New England region over the past few years, the camp will form a vital part of the side's preparations for the 2021 campaign with trial matches scheduled for the final weeks of February.
Travelling up from Sydney on Sunday, Wests Tigers will begin their on-field preparations on Monday with one of four field sessions throughout the week.
Rugby league fans are encouraged to attend a Meet and Greet with the players on Tuesday afternoon while Wednesday and Thursday will also see a number of exciting community activities taking place with members of the NRL squad.
Wests Tigers players and staff will deliver the club's award-winning Unite Harmony Program at Peel Technology High School on Wednesday as well as at Tamworth High School. Players and staff will also engage with Challenge Disability Service before finishing a big day of community involvement with an NRL League Stars clinic in Gunnedah.
After their field session on Thursday, Wests Tigers players will then host a junior league clinic at Scully Park in the afternoon while the club's coaching staff will run a coaches workshop at the same time. Registrations are required for both events, with links to register available in the week-long activities list below.
Wests Tigers' involvement with Tamworth first began back in 2018 when the club began its annual tradition of a home game at Scully Park — taking on the Newcastle Knights before defeating the Gold Coast Titans the following year.
The club was scheduled to play the Canberra Raiders in 2020 before NRL biosecurity restrictions forced the fixture to be cancelled and the venue changed.
Match: Wests Tigers v Sharks
Round 23 -
Venue: Browne Park, Rockhampton
Having firmly committed to the region, Wests Tigers will return to Tamworth in 2021 when they take on the Cronulla Sharks in a Round 23 clash that could prove crucial for both sides in the lead-up to the 2021 finals series.
Tickets for the game will go on sale later in the near future.
