Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire has signed a new deal with the club until at least the end of 2023.

The 46-year-old, who is also head coach of the New Zealand national team, will become the second-longest serving coach in Wests Tigers history behind Tim Sheens.

Maguire said: “Iโ€™m really pleased to be able to re-sign with Wests Tigers.

โ€œWeโ€™ve put a lot of work in over the last couple of years and Iโ€™m seeing plenty of change for the club to move forward in a big way.

“Weโ€™re all not happy with where weโ€™ve been and everything we do now is about moving us forward towards a Premiership.

โ€œI love the people here and the passion around the organisation.

โ€œThe more I see people with a connection Wests Tigers, the more I see the hunger for success. This is a massive club with an incredibly rich history, and weโ€™re all determined to grow this year into a really strong season.โ€
