Having moved around three clubs in five years prior to joining Wests Tigers, Matt McIlwrick was one of the best surprises in season 2017 — making the hooking role his own throughout the year as he featured in all but one match due to suspension.

Working in close tandem with Jacob Liddle before the latter suffered a shoulder injury, McIlwrick ended 2017 as the team's second-highest tackler while also adding two tries.

After marrying his long-time partner Amy in the off-season and signing a contract extension with the Club, McIlwrick will be looking for another strong 2018 with Wests Tigers.
