Wests Tigers are pleased to announce that local junior Alex Seyfarth has signed a new playing contract with the club.
The two-year deal will see Seyfarth remain in Wests Tigers colours until at least the end of the 2023 NRL season.
A local junior of the club through Dundas Shamrocks, Seyfarth has progressed through the ranks at Wests Tigers; named the club’s Jersey Flegg Player of the Year in 2018 before stepping up to the reserve-grade competition the following year.
The physical forward would make his first-grade debut in Round 3 of the 2020 season — going on to feature in four games in his rookie year — before playing 11 games in 2021, including by his first NRL try against the Dragons in Round 12.
The 22-year-old said he was delighted to re-sign with Wests Tigers.
“I’m really happy to be able to stay on with the club for another couple of years,” Seyfarth said.
“I grew up always wanting to play for Wests Tigers and it’s dream come true to continue my playing future here. I’m really enjoying what we’re building at the club and I’m keen to play my part in bringing success to our Members and fans moving forward.”
Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire said he was pleased to see Seyfarth continue his rugby league career with Wests Tigers.
“I’m really pleased to see Alex extend his playing future with Wests Tigers,” Maguire said.
