"On behalf of all at Wests Tigers I'd like to welcome James to the club and say how pleased we are to secure a player with his experience and talent for the coming two seasons," he said. Tamou, who won a premiership at the Cowboys in 2015, believes Cleary is a Thurston clone and has seen enough to believe his Penrith teammate is on the path to greatness. He might get the bounce of the ball, but he has to be there to be in a position to get the ball. Sometimes we’re in video sessions and he’s telling us where we need to be, what we have to do. His long list of achievements in the game includes World Cup and State of Origin victories, as well as success in the Auckland Nines and World Club Challenge, and an NRL premiership with North Queensland Cowboys. The 31-year-old - who has represented NSW and Australia - will join the club for the 2021 and 2022 seasons. Penrith Panthers prop James Tamou has signed a two-year deal with the Wests Tigers. "He is certainly a very well respected person. The former NSW and Kangaroos prop will link with the Tigers from next season, as the first of the NRL club's two big recruitment targets. They also still firmly have their eyes set on bringing Josh Addo-Carr back to the club as fullback, dependent on securing his release from Melbourne. The 31-year-old former Test and NSW Origin prop will decide whether to remain at Penrith or join the Wests Tigers next season. Young Panthers flyer Charlie Staines had also been linked to the club but could be out of their price range if they end up scoring Addo-Carr. "It's just an unfortunate bi-product of the salary cap. Cleary installed Tamou as captain last year and he's recaptured the form that once made him a NSW and Australian mainstay. He brings with him premiership-winning experience, and is the exact kind of man the Tigers need to lift a forward pack that is littered with potential.

From considering retirement as he questioned whether he was a spent force to leading his team to the grand final. He’s got a long way to go in his career but he is on the way to greatness. Cleary has scored 801 points, 35 tries and kicked seven field goals, while Thurston at the same age had 206 points, 22 tries and two field goals. Tamou is an accomplished front-rower who brings valuable experience and leadership to the Panthers pack.
