Wests Tigers tie down fan favourite David Nofoaluma until 2025

Wests Tigers have tied down popular winger David Nofoaluma for another four years.

Nofoaluma was the club's best player last season and will now remain at the joint venture until the end of 2025 after signing a four-year contract extension.

The 27-year-old became an instant fan favourite in 2017 when he showed no hesitation re-signing with the club as the 'Big Four' – James Tedesco, Aaron Woods, Luke Brooks and Mitch Moses – were all weighing up offers elsewhere.

The Campbelltown junior made it known again late last year he did not want to leave the Tigers, and while the club also viewed him as a one-club player, they were only prepared to table a three-year extension.

Negotiations stepped up in recent weeks and the Tigers stretched out the latest deal by a further season.

Nofoaluma, who was unlucky to miss out on selection to the extended NSW Origin squad last year, broke the good news to his teammates before training on Thursday.

Tigers chairman Lee Hagipantelis told the Herald before Christmas of Nofoaluma: “Nobody bleeds black, white and gold the way David Nofoaluma does.

"It's not my role to foretell what his intentions or aspirations are, but knowing him as I do, I'd like to think he would love to see out his career at Wests Tigers."
