Last season, the Tigers had the Clydesdales’ number, winning both the home and away fixtures. On April 23, the Tigers edged the Clydesdales 32-28 at home, before securing an 18-34 victory on the road on July 8.

The defending premiers will be looking to build momentum against the winless Clydesdales (0-2). The visitors have struggled to find their form in the early stages of the season, and the Tigers will be aiming to capitalise on their opponent’s troubles.

Search for the new CEO

In other news, the Tigers organisation has announced that they have begun the search for a new Chief Executive Officer, following the March 18 news that current CEO Brian Torpy will be stepping down from the role after 8 years.

Torpy will remain in the position until August 3, where he will oversee the completion of Stage 2 of the Langlands Park facility before his departure.

“The time is right for a change and to pass the baton on to my successor”, Torpy said. “It’s been a privilege to have served the Club and I am proud to have been part of such a great team that has put the Club in a position to hopefully move into the NRL.”
