Can you spot the two glaring mistakes in Wests’ 2023 schedule? Tigers make shocking mistakes after Parramatta also got his promotion for next year very badly
- Tigers’ 2023 schedule features two players no longer with the club
- Jackson Hastings and Tyrone Peachey appear on the cover and inside
- Blunder comes just weeks after a similar mistake in the Eels 2023 schedule
The Wests Tigers’ run of bad luck for the NRL’s Wests Tigers has continued this week with the release of the Sydney team’s 2023 schedule, which includes two embarrassing mistakes.
The Tigers are currently in the midst of the longest finals drought in the NRL dating back to 2011 and manager Tim Sheens is determined to put a decade of terror behind him, but he won’t be happy about the latest bad news for the club.

The schedule features both Jackson Hastings and Tyrone Peachey and neither player is with the embattled club in 2023.
The calendar, which can be pre-ordered now, features both Jackson Hastings and Tyrone Peachey on the cover, with neither player set to play for the embattled club in 2023.
Hastings moved to Newcastle in a swap deal involving prop David Klemmer and Peachey returned to the top-place winners Penrith Panthers.
The schedule also features both players on the inside, with Hastings as the main star for January and Peachey as the main star for February.
The unfortunate mistake comes just weeks after a similar mistake in the Parramatta Eels’ 2023 schedule.
The calendar featured star player Isaiah Papali’i, who left the club for Wests Tigers, under the name ‘Junior Paulo’.

Tigers assistant coach Benji Marshall is optimistic the club can turn things around in 2023 and believes success is just around the corner.
“It’s been a tough ten years from a club point of view,” Marshall said in a club video on weststigers.com.au.

We’re doing everything we can in training from a team perspective to make sure we change that. But good things are coming out of us.
‘We don’t go into next year saying we want to have an average year. We want to win, and we will tell the players.’
The Tigers are off to a favorable start to the 2023 season with back-to-back home games against the Gold Coast Titans and Newcastle Knights at Leichhardt Oval.
