Taylor said he was pleased to have his immediate future finalised and expressed his excitement in securing his contract through until the end of the 2018 season.

"I'm really happy to have extended my contract with Wests Tigers," Taylor said. 

"It's a great club, there's a lot of potential and some really great young players here.

"Staying at Wests Tigers was something that I'd wanted to do for a while, so it's good to have that all sorted now.

"It didn't take me too long to settle in here at the club, the boys were all really welcoming and the coaching staff really believed in me and supported me.

"I really enjoyed that aspect and it made my transition so much easier, so to now get a pre-season under my belt with the team will really help going into 2017."
