One of the Tigers more consistent performers in recent seasons, the 23-year old said it was a very easy decision to remain at the club he made his NRL debut at in 2017.

“It was a really easy decision for me to re-sign,” he said.

“This club gave me my debut and I’m really happy with where the club is going and what direction Michael Maguire has us going in.

"I’m just excited to be a part of it going forward.

“I’m still a long way away from the player I want to be in the NRL but I’m really happy with my progress.

"This club has helped me so much as a player and a person, and I’m really looking forward to where things go in the next few years.”

Twal is a former Junior Kangaroos standout, and has also represented NSW at the U20s level.

The 2019 campaign was a career year for him on an individual level, and has now been earmarked for a potential Origin jumper in the coming years.

Head Coach Michael Maguire was full of praise for the prop following his decision to remain at the Tigers. 

“I’m really excited that we’ve been able to secure Alex for another two years,” he said.

“I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the way he grew his game throughout the year, and I have no doubt that his role in this team will only continue to grow in the coming years.

“For a player of his age, Alex has really matured on and off the field and we’re very excited to see him continue his development into a real leader for Wests Tigers.”
