Api Koroisau announced as new captain of Wests Tigers


Wests Tigers is delighted to announce Apisai Koroisau has been appointed team captain for 2023.

The announcement was made at Wests Tigers official season launch on the waterfront at Iron Cove, where more than 300 VIP guests had the chance to mingle with their team.

The three-time NRL premiership-winner has enjoyed his first few months at his new club and is thrilled to become the team’s leader.

“To be asked to lead this team in my first year at the club, means a lot,” said Koroisau.

“From the moment I joined this club, my family and I have been made to feel so welcome.

“It’s been a great start to my time as a Wests Tigers player and I look forward to helping this team and this club be the best it can be.”

Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens says Koroisau is a natural leader.

“We have several very capable leaders in this team, and Api is one of them,” said Sheens.

“I congratulate him on earning the role.”

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe believes Koroisau will excel as team captain.

“In the short time he’s been with us, Api has demonstrated and embraced our core values as a club,” said Pascoe.

“I think it’s a tremendous appointment and I’m sure he will thrive with the added responsibility.”

Wests Tigers play their second Pre-season Challenge game this Sunday against Canberra Raiders at Belmore.
