Adam joined the Club in July 2019 from the Roosters, and, alongside Michael Maguire, is determined to bring change to the Club. So, our initial discussion was about how Adam arrived at Wests Tigers, and what the General Manager of Football role entails.
Hartigan talked about the situation regarding Harry Grant, the recent release of Corey Thompson, and the departure of Ryan Matterson last season.
Other issues included recruitment philosophy, our forward pack, salary cap management, home grounds, and what the Wests Tigers can do to engage more fans and encourage them to become members.
Players discussed included Shawn Blore, Luciano Leilua, BJ Leilua, Adam Doueihi, Zane Musgrove, and some younger players coming through at the Club.
He also spoke about the developing Centre of Excellence, the current Wests Tigers temporary headquarters at Cintra Park, the current mindset within the Club, and goals moving forward.
A number of fans’ questions from both the Wests Tigers Forum and Wests Tigers Podcast Facebook page were also addressed as best as possible.
Engagement between this Podcast, fans and Club management is greatly appreciated.
Adam was forthright and generous with his time, and we hope to continue this relationship as a semi-regular guest on the Wests Tigers Podcast.
