Wests Tigers Sign Matt Ballin and Re-Sign Dene Halatau
Wests Tigers have signed Matt Ballin and re-signed Dene Halatau on 2 and 1 year deals respectively.
Are these good signings for the Tigers?
“We have been working really hard to strengthen depth at the Club,” Taylor said.
“Bringing Matt into the fold means that we currently have three specialist hookers in the full-time squad – the same number we had during the 2015 season.
“Now with Joel Luani leaving the Club it was imperative that we acquired another hooker.
“As a result, we are well-placed should injury or suspension arise, whilst also ensuring that there is healthy competition for positions in the Club’s first grade side.
“Dene has played nine seasons at Wests Tigers and is a great leader amongst the current playing group.
“I’m really happy to have him back for 2016 because of his positive attitude and professionalism at training.”
