Penrith Emus name former West Tigers’ player captain as they search for breakthrough win

Penrith Emus have named former Wests Tigers player Andy Fiagatusa as captain ahead of their opening 2021 Shute Shield match against Norths next weekend.

Fiagatusa grew up playing rugby in Auckland but converted to rugby league after moving to Australia in his teens.

Fiagatusa is a former Wests Tigers U20s player of the year and is one of a number of new faces expected to turn out for John Muggleton’s side this season.
