Mick Potter set for contract extension at Wests Tigers

After almost losing his job last season, Wests Tigers coach Mick Potter is set to earn a new contract with the club following their superb start to the season.

The Tigers finished 15th last season, just one place off the bottom in the NRL. However, after rebuilding in the off-season, Potter has guided the Tigers to four wins from their first six games and, despite being out of contract at the end of the season, looks set to remain with the club for the coming years.

We’ve got to get the board in place, that’s the most important thing first and foremost,” Tigers chief Grant Mayer said.

“Over the first six weeks of the competition, Mick has done everything right. In regards to any contract negotiations, you’ve got to put your best foot forward. He’s doing that, the team is helping him do that and there’s no doubt when it comes down to having those conversations, those results will play a big part in him going forward.”
