Wests Tigers have today confirmed that Moses Mbye has been granted a release from the final year of his playing contract and will depart the club at the end of the 2021 season.
Mbye joined Wests Tigers from the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs midway through the 2018 season and has played a total of 61 matches since for the club, including 32 as captain throughout the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
In his time with Wests Tigers, the 27-year-old achieved representative honours — becoming just the second player at the time in club history to feature for Queensland State of Origin — while he also celebrated his 150th NRL game earlier this year against South Sydney at Leichhardt Oval.
Mbye has been granted a release from the final year of his contract to take up a long-term deal with another NRL club from the start of the 2022 campaign.
Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe thanked Moses for his commitment to the club and wished he, his partner Madeleine, and his children all the best for the future.
“On behalf of all at the club, I’d like to thank Moses for his efforts at Wests Tigers and extend our thanks to him for his service to the club.
“In particular, I’d like to recognise Moses’ achievements as the 21st player to captain Wests Tigers and commend him on the way he carried himself, both on and off the field, while wearing the Wests Tigers jersey.
“Moses has shown himself to be a versatile and talented player right throughout his career and we wish him and his family all the very best for the future.”
