A Short History Of The Wests Tigers
The Wests Tigers formed at the end of the 1999 NRL season when the Balmain Tigers and the Western Suburbs Magpies came together to form one club. So how did this come to be? Well, the NRL was offering guaranteed entry into the 2000 competition and major funding for clubs who merged. Both Balmain and Western Suburbs had interest from other teams but felt these offers would be takeovers rather than mergers. So, in June 1999 they voted instead to form a new club together, to make a competitive new club. Starting in the 2000 NRL season, they played steady until they won their first premiership in 2005 against the North Queensland Cowboys. They're also one of only two clubs to never lose a grand final they participated in.

Just like the two sides that came together, the Wests Tigers club name and logo are also a combination of their teams. The club colours take the black and white from the Western Suburbs Magpies and the black and gold from the Balmain Tigers. The logo encompasses the ferocious tiger with the traditional Wests 'V' behind it. If you haven't paid close enough attention, you'll now notice there's also a Magpie from the Western Suburbs logo printed on both sleeves of the Wests Tigers jersey.
