Wests Tigers will celebrate its annual Heritage Round on Saturday when the club plays host to the Cronulla Sharks at Rockhampton.
Having missed the chance to recognise its traditional Heritage Round game in Sydney this year due to the COVID pandemic, Wests Tigers will now celebrate the game in Round 23 in what is a must-win contest for Michael Maguire's side.
With over 235 of combined history at Wests Tigers, the club is incredibly proud of its past and the impact that has on both the present and the future.
The heritage element of the Wests Tigers Foundation is focused on engaging, uniting, and celebrating the history of Wests Tigers as well as that of our Foundation clubs, the Western Suburbs Magpies and Balmain Tigers.
