Mbye named as new Tigers skipper


//

The Wests Tigers have announced Moses Mbye as their new captain for the 2019 NRL season.

Premiership-winning coach Michael Maguire appointed Mbye in the position, overlooking other Tigers players like Benji Marshall, Luke Brooks, Robbie Farah, Russell Packer, Elijah Taylor and Chris Lawrence, but named them in the side's leadership group instead.

The new coach said Mbye's standing in the team was a big part of his decision-making to make him skipper.

“To captain a club with the shared history of Wests Tigers is a tremendous privilege and we are equally confident and proud to have him lead us in 2019," Maguire said.

“Moses is incredibly well respected by his teammates and carries himself extremely well both on and off the field. He is a great role model for all young players in the game and is more than capable of leading us forward in to an exciting time in Wests Tigers history.

“Every person in this team has an important contribution to make this year as leaders — on and off the field — and we’re excited to move ahead with the group that we have.”

Moses, 25, played most of his NRL with the Bulldogs before joining the Tigers halfway through last season and is currently on a deal keeping him with Wests until the end of the 2022 season.

“Being named captain today is one of the proudest moments of my career,” Mbye said.

“Growing up, it was a dream of mine to play one game in the NRL, so I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had the career I have so far. I feel privileged to captain a club with history as rich as Wests Tigers, and to be recognised in this way by my teammates and coaches is truly humbling.

"The history of this club means so much to me when I think about players like Wayne Pearce, Tommy Raudonikis and Benji Marshall and all that have had success here.

"Knowing this makes putting on the Wests Tigers jersey mean more to me than just playing a game, and I know this group is focused on adding another successful chapter to the history of the club.

“On and off the field, Wests Tigers have taken huge steps forward in recent years and I am thrilled to be part of the exciting future that is ahead. To help lead this team forward is a tremendous honour and something I am incredibly excited about."
