Wigan star set to leave for the NRL

Oliver Gildart is to join Wests Tigers from 2022, Channel 9’s Danny Weidler has confirmed.

Wigan have had a number of players try their hand in the NRL in recent seasons with the likes of George Williams, Ryan Sutton and John Bateman all testing their mettle Down Under.

And now, 24-year-old Gildart is expected to follow current teammate Jackson Hastings to Wests, with the centre out of contract at the end of 2021.

Rumours had been flying around since the start of the season, but finally there is something concrete as Gildart prepares for life after Wigan.

Gildart is another Wigan academy graduate who was won two Grand Finals and one World Club Challenge in his time at the DW Stadium.
