The Wests Tigers have seen major changes with a new board, coach, and marquee signing, giving fans a glimmer of hope for the 2024 NRL season. The goal for this season is to avoid finishing last and to build momentum for Jarome Luai’s arrival in 2025. Benji Marshall, the new coach, will be focusing on developing a team for Luai, even if it means sacrificing immediate results. However, the team roster is a challenge, with competing ideas of who will be in the Top 30. There are several new signings, including three new halves, a move from Melbourne, and a former Kiwi rugby union winger. While the forwards are more established, the starting backs and spine are still uncertain. Overall, the Tigers will be looking to use trials to determine their best team. The predicted Round 1 team includes some familiar names along with new signings and development players.
