Tigers’ latest strategy to avoid finishing ninth — sign Michael Clarke

Wests Tigers’ recruitment strategy has crossed codes in a bid to lure one of the club’s highest profile fans to the boardroom.

Former Australian Test cricket captain Michael Clarke has reportedly turned down an approach to join the club’s board, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

The celebrity ex-cricketer and co-host of Sky Racing’s Big Sports Breakfast told the Herald it wasn’t the right time to accept an offer from his beloved Tigers.

NRL: Buzz Rothfield tells NRL 360 that Paul McGregor’s job will be discussed at a Dragons board meeting next week and the board is split. He believes this week will be McGregor’s last at the Dragons.

“I love the Tigers and I would love to see them do well, just unfortunately right now I can’t say yes to a position like that,” Clarke said.

“I just don’t think it would be fair to take up an opportunity like that and then let people down with how busy I am at the moment. That’s not me.”

The Tigers have finished ninth in three of the past four seasons and haven’t played finals football since 2011.
