“We Could Have 300,000 Members And They Can’t Challenge The Board” | Benny Elias Rips Into Wests Tigers Management

Balmain Tigers legend Benny Ellias joined The Rush Hour with Gus, Jude & Wendell for their Hero, Hardship & Highlight podcast.


One of the greats that ever suited for the club – post merger included, expressed his utter disappointment and frustration at the board of the Wests Tigers.

“I always believed that what’s on the board and starts at the very top, sits all the way through down.

“It’s in business and in everything!”

The Tigers are starring down the barrel of consecutive wooden spoons, without having played finals footy since 2011.

Elias believes that the fans deserve more power in how they believe their club should be run.

“The unfortunate part about our club is that the members you would think would be the people who dictate.

“They’re the people who vote for the board.

“This club does not have that infrastructure. We could have 300,000 members and they can’t challenge the board!”
