Wests Tigers have revealed a new-look leadership group for the 2017 NRL season which includes Aaron Woods, Chris Lawrence, Matt Ballin, Tim Grant, Mitchell Moses, Elijah Taylor and James Tedesco.
Woods will continue as captain with Lawrence joined by Ballin as the team’s two vice-captains following the 2016 retirement of Dene Halatau.
Grant, Moses and Taylor are the new additions to the group for the 2017 season.
"As a club, I think we’ve made really great development in this leadership area,” coach Jason Taylor said.
“It’s really exciting for me to have a group of strong leaders that are so committed and focused on the improvement of firstly themselves, but also their teammates.”
Woods said the group would focus on encouraging a strong culture at the club.
“This is a really great group of men and they’ll do a great job this year,” he said.
“Having the likes of Tim and Elijah join with their experience will be a great asset, and retaining a similar group from last year will also really help the team overall.
“Each person brings something really unique from a leadership point of view, and I’m really looking forward to working with them throughout the season.”
