On the eve of the club’s biggest ever “community blitz’’, Wests Tigers have appointed new recruit Apisai Koroisau captain for the 2023 NRL season
The Origin hooker is entering his first year as a Wests Tigers player after joining the club on a long-term deal in the off-season.
The three-time NRL premiership-winner has enjoyed his first few months at his new club and is thrilled to become the team’s leader.
“To be asked to lead this team in my first year at the club, means a lot,” says Koroisau.
“This is a terrific group of players, and I am honoured to be their captain.
“From the moment I joined this club, my family and I have been made to feel so welcome.
“It’s been a great start to my time as a Wests Tigers player and I look forward to helping this team and this club be the best it can be.”
Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens says Koroisau is a natural leader.
“We have several very capable leaders in this team, and Api is one of them,” said Sheens.
“He is very well respected within the group, and I know he’ll do a great job.
“I congratulate him on earning the role.”

Api Koroisau will kick off his captaincy by going back to school as part of the club’s 2023 community blitz – the biggest so far.

Thirty-six players will visit 96 schools over the two-day blitz, which covers the club’s vast catchment areas of South Western Sydney and the inner west.

 This year’s Community Blitz will roar into action from today, Tuesday, with the players setting off from Campbelltown Sports Stadium. 
The South Western Sydney “blitz crew’’ is made up of 34 players, including local juniors David Nofoaluma, Justin Matamua and Sophie Curtain and will visit 63 schools across the day.
