Wests Tigers stand down staff due to coronavirus pandemic

Wests Tigers have stood down football and administration staff due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tigers chief executive Justin Pascoe has confirmed the stand down period would remain indefinitely to ease financial strain on the club.

Pascoe said: “As a club, we have today made the tough decision to stand down the majority of our staff — good people who have worked tirelessly to ensure Wests Tigers is what it is today — and that is not an easy decision to make.

“As tough as these decisions are, they are done to ensure that Wests Tigers remains intact and can come out the other side of this crisis stronger for it.”
