Club Statement: Tigers will remain a feeder club

The Suzuki Brisbane Tigers would like to address reports in the media today.

It was reported that in the event the Firehawks become the NRL’s 17th team, the Brisbane Tigers would look to discontinue playing in the Intrust Super Cup to make way for the Brisbane Jets.

The Tigers, founded in 1917 and later formed in 1933 is one of the oldest and proudest clubs in world rugby league.

Firehawks and Tigers CEO Brian Torpy said, “I can absolutely confirm the Firehawks plan to have the Tigers as a feeder club into the future”.

“Our proposal to the ARLC is that both the Tigers and the CQ Capras will be feeder clubs to the Firehawks. In the event the Jets decided to be a feeder club, they would become the third”, Torpy added.

The Tigers will field teams in the Intrust Super Cup, Hastings Deering Colts, Mal Meninga Cup, Cyril Connell Cup, BHP Premiership and Harvey Norman U19’s in the 2022 rugby league season.

As at 3 September 2021
