Heath Gibbs is off to the Wests Tigers in 2018.

Boom Knights utility Heath Gibbs bagged a hat trick against the Tigers in the NRL's under 20 competition last month - so the Tigers claimed the ultimate revenge on Newcastle today.

The Tigers swooped on Gibbs, signing the 19-year-old centre or second-rower on a three year deal which will start in 2018.

The Dubbo born youngster is one of the best up-and-comers in the Knights’ ranks and his defection is a blow to Nathan Brown’s plans for the future.

The Tigers continue to spend big money, with Gibbs the 12th new face signed by coach Ivan Cleary for 2018.

He is expected to train in the pre-season with the full-time squad and be given his chance to shine in the pre-season trials.

Just before Ivan Cleary's shock departure from Penrith at the end of the 2015 season, he sat down with son Nathan to discuss how long it would take before he would get a taste of NRL football.

NRL beyondblue Cup: Wests Tigers focus on mental health after death of Mosese Fotuaika - The Sydney Morning Herald

There are players and officials at Wests Tigers still haunted by the death of Mosese Fotuaika, the 20-year-old front-row forward who took his own life in February, 2013, shortly after sustaining a potentially season-ending pectoral muscle injury at the club's Concord gym. 

On Monday, Wests Tigers will announce their round 23 match against Manly at Leichhardt Oval next Sunday will be for the NRL beyondblue Cup.

It is intriguing that a match against Manly, the bitter rivals of Wests in the late 70s and early 80s, would be chosen, given the clashes probably challenged the mental health of the city and code.

A club spokesman said, in reference to other home-game opponents, such as the round 26 member appreciation weekend, "The other games on the...

Schick Hydro Preview: Wests Tigers v Manly Sea Eagles
Leichhardt Oval
Sunday, 4:00pm

Two sides with different reasons to chase victory clash for the second time in a month with the Wests Tigers hosting Manly at Leichhardt Oval.

Newcastle's impressive win over the Warriors last start has given the Tigers some added motivation to finish the season strongly with the Novocastrians now just two points behind them on the Telstra Premiership ladder.

No one wants to finish on the bottom of the competition and Ivan Cleary's men have shown in recent weeks they are keen to end the season on a good note.

It's a different story for the side from the Northern Beaches.

Manly can go from as high as the top four to crashing out of the finals race in the last month of football. An impressive victory over the second-placed Roosters after two losses prior should give Trent Barrett's men plenty of believe...

Sydney Roosters lay down defensive benchmark ahead of Wests Tigers NRL clash - The Sydney Morning Herald

Captain Boyd Cordner has challenged his Sydney Roosters teammates to use Saturday's defensive effort against Melbourne as a platform from which to launch their bid for the NRL title.

Saturday's narrow loss to the minor premiers in waiting was Cordner's first club game in 10 weeks, during which time he has battled knee and calf injuries, but the influential back-rower has declared himself in prime shape for the run in to next month's finals.

Wests Tigers v Sea Eagles preview - 2017 Round 23 - League Unlimited

Match Preview:
Wests Tigers v Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles Sunday 4:00pm at Leichhardt Oval

Sea Eagles look to sew up Top Eight spot against improving Tigers

The Tigers were valiant in defeat again last week when they went down to the Panthers 28-14. The final score line was not a true reflection of Ivan Cleary's men's efforts, with Penrith scoring two tries in the final six minutes to run away comfortable victors despite what was quite a struggle for the previous 74 minutes. Despite their evident improvement in the past couple of weeks, the Tigers now find themselves just two points in front of the last placed Knights. Cleary has remained loyal to the seventeen that lost to Penrith last week and will be somewhat confident of his side's chances seeing that the Tigers have won five of their past six against Manly at Leichhardt.

Meanwhile, after collapsing to heavy defeats at the...
