Having made his first-grade debut earlier in the year, Malakai Watene-Zelezniak made his Club debut for Wests Tigers in Round 10 after moving from the Penrith Panthers.

The brother of Kiwi flyer Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Malakai would play 13 games for Wests Tigers throughout 2017 — ending the year as the team's third top try-scorer with six tries.

Signed through until the end of the 2018 season, Malakai will look to improve further on his performances throughout the year and will provide excellent cover throughout the back-line.
