Wests Tigers are on the eve of a new era as they replace their CEO and the structure of the running of the club.

This likely marks the conclusion of David Nofoaluma’s tenure with the club. He faced a training ban a week ago and recent penalties for tardiness, indicating his imminent departure. Despite being the club’s leading try scorer, it is anticipated that the winger will part ways with the team.

Potential destinations for Nofoaluma include Super League clubs like Salford Red Devils and St Helens, both in need of skilled backs. Salford, dealing with the impending departure of Joe Burgess, sees Nofoaluma as an ideal replacement, especially after losing Ken Sio and having an available quota spot.

St Helens, currently seeking a center following Will Hopoate’s exit, has a quota spot and a vacant number three position. Uncertainty around Jack Welsby’s future adds pressure to their recruitment, making Nofoaluma a viable option.

This development coincides with a new era at the Wests Tigers, marked by the introduction of Interim CEO Shane Richardson. With over 30 years of rugby league management experience and success at Penrith and South Sydney, Richardson aims to strategically position the Tigers for success.

While the immediate focus is on the team’s pre-Christmas training under new head coach Benji Marshall, Richardson expresses full support for Marshall’s coaching aspirations. Richardson emphasizes his role in supporting Marshall and creating the optimal roster for success, highlighting his track record in aiding coaches throughout their careers.
