NRL: Wests Tigers star celebrates Grand Final victory in Panthers jersey


A Wests Tigers star has drawn the ire of some of the club’s fans after being filmed celebrating the Panthers’ big final victory in a Penrith jersey.

Wests Tigers star Daine Laurie was pictured wearing a Penrith jersey amid celebrations for the captivating Panthers’ big win on Sunday night.

Laurie spent five years in the Panthers organization; he made his freshman debut for the club in the 13th round last year before moving on to the Tigers for 2021.

The rear was featured in a video posted to Facebook on Monday by Thiqa Media, showcasing the celebratory scenes from Panthers fans in Penrith.

The brief moment Laurie featured in the video was captured and posted to Twitter.

One Twitter user described Laurie’s appearance as ‘a kick in the balls’, while another suggested the Tigers should ‘tear up his contract immediately’.

However, another Twitter user felt that was okay and wrote: “Our only expectation of our players may be that they give their all every time they put on the jersey and cross the white stripe. It starts and ends there. If Daine Laurie wants to don his Panthers jersey and cheer them on, go for it. “

It didn’t look good for the Tigers full-back, as the photo on Twitter gained traction hours before he was announced as the co-winner of the Kelly-Barnes Medal for Player of the Year of the club alongside Luke Brooks.

The 22-year-old had a stellar first season for the Concord club, recording seven tries in 19 appearances before his season was cut short due to a fractured fibula in the Tigers’ 20th round clash against the Warriors.
