The West Tigers will be the first NRL club to give rugby league fans an in-depth look at what goes on behind every match in the upcoming documentary series, Wild Wests: Tales from Tiger Town. A Fox Sports Original Production, it follows the Tigers players, coach Michael Maguire, and off-field staff during the 2021 NRL season. It will be available to watch on Foxtel and stream on Kayo starting July 19.
What can you expect from Wild Wests: Tales from Tiger Town?
This year’s NRL is a bumpy one and the West Tigers are feeling the wrath of a turbulent season as they face the uphill battle to move ahead and out of the bottom four. Each episode is filmed over a period of three or four games, capturing intense and shocking behind-the-scenes any rugby fans would want to see.
“This documentary is not stage managed. Our cameras have been left to roll and in doing so we have captured some of the most raw, private and inner sanctum insights that occur inside a professional sporting club,” Fox Sports executive director Steve Crawley said.
While there are only a few days left before the premiere of the first episode on July 19, filming for the final episodes of Wild Wests: Tales from Tiger Town is still ongoing and will continue through to the end of the season. It will be an honest and tumultuous journey that viewers will get to experience, something that Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe (who also appears in the series) hopes will bring the team closer to the fans.
