Wests Tigers win 'Battle of the West'

The Wests Tigers have successfully taken out their first challenge of the new season, defeating the Panthers and Eels to claim the inaugural ‘Battle of the West’ competition.

With just over 1,000 supporters signing up in the past 10 days, the Wests Tigers were able to hold off the strong finishing Penrith Panthers who finished less than 40 memberships behind.

Despite finishing runners up, Panthers and Eels fans can still feel very proud of their respective clubs after helping both clubs enjoy record sales within such a short period.

Over the three rounds of competitions over 11,500 people have committed to a 2011 NRL Club Membership across the nine Sydney clubs that took part in the Membership Premiership, with the victors being the Sharks, Dragons and now Wests Tigers.
