Gildart injury

Oliver Gildart has provided an update following his move to the Wests Tigers.

Gildart, who earned a reputation for being one of the most impressive attacking outlets in Super League, scoring 61 tries in 129 appearances for the Warriors, looks very much at home as he took to the training field for the first time.

The English centre said: “Good first week with the boys” as he blew off some steam following the long journey from the UK.

Gildart earlier revealed to NRL.com just why he left the DW Stadium for Wests Tigers.

“It’s always been my dream to play in the NRL,” Gildart said.

“I was handed the opportunity to come and represent this great club — I jumped at the opportunity.  I’ve watched this club for a long time now.”

Gildart also outlined why it was another successful Englishman that inspired the move to the southern hemisphere.

“Gareth Ellis — another Englishman — was very successful here and hopefully I can also make my own history here.

“I’ve played against Gareth in the Super League. My old man and his old man are good friends.

“I know the kind of player he is from playing against him. I’ve seen what he’s done here, winning multiple player of the year awards, he’s loved over here.

“It’s great to see English guys in the NRL.”
