Wests Tigers are pleased to announce the signing of forward Tom Amone, effective immediately, for the 2021 NRL season.
An Australian Schoolboy and Junior Kiwis representative player, who has already proven himself at the NRL level, the 24-year-old Amone will add further talent and depth to the Wests Tigers engine room following his immediate arrival to the club.
Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire welcomed Amone’s arrival to Wests Tigers.
“Tom has shown he has what it takes to make it at the NRL level so we’re very pleased to have secured his services for the season ahead,” Maguire said.
“Having overcome some adversity, Tom has worked hard to be ready for the season ahead and I’m looking forward to him adding further to our forward pack this year.”
Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe congratulated Amone on his new deal.
“On behalf of all at Wests Tigers, I’d like to welcome Tom to Wests Tigers,” Pascoe said.
“Tom’s experience and capabilities at the NRL level make him an excellent addition to our squad at this point of the year and we’re delighted to welcome him on board.
“Tom has shown an enthusiasm and desire to contribute at this club right away and we’re looking forward to watching him do that in the year ahead.”
Amone will link up with the club immediately and begin training with the squad this week ahead of Wests Tigers’ season opener against the Canberra Raiders on March 14.
