A fan-favourite at Wests Tigers, Elijah Taylor continued his return to the elite level in 2017 with a relentless attitude in defence and attack right throughout the year.

Playing 21 of a possible 24 games and also stepping up as captain during the Origin period, Taylor was given the Kelly-Barnes Award in 2017 as the Club's Player of the Year as well as the Members Player of the Year Award — further highlighting his favourite status amongst fans.

Earning a well-deserved return to the New Zealand national side in the World Cup, Taylor will look to lead Wests Tigers from the front in 2018 after re-signing until the end of 2020.
