The Wests Tigers love a good utility and Tyrone Peachey will be their latest one after he signed on at the club.
Peachey will be at the Tigers for two seasons after departing the Gold Coast Titans.
A gifted utility, Peachey began his NRL career at the Cronulla Sharks in 2013 and has played for the Penrith Panthers and the Titans.
The proud Indigenous All-Star is looking forward to playing at the Tigers and under coach Michael Maguire.
“I’m really excited to join the club and get stuck into work with Wests Tigers,” Peachey said.
“I’ve been really impressed by Madge and the way he approaches the game and I’m looking forward to working under him.
“I know that I perform my best when I’ve got a strong coach who can keep me accountable, and I’ve really enjoyed speaking with him lately.”
Peachey is also looking forward to helping the next generation of forwards the Tigers have in their ranks.
“I’ve been through the process of seeing young players step up into the NRL and what needs to change for the club to be successful,” Peachey continued.
“It’s a good chance for me to not only help on the field but also give the young players some direction and help this team play finals footy.”
Maguire believes that the signing of Peachey is a strong addition for the club.
“I’m really pleased to welcome Tyrone to our team and to have his experience and versatility as part of our club,” Maguire said.
“Tyrone is a real competitor in all that he does on and off the field, and he will add a lot to the way that we want to play moving forward.”
