Title: ... p99 - Ellery Hanley, Garry Schofield and Gareth Ellis honoured at Wests Tigers Dinner by Wayne Cousi

Ellery Hanley, Garry Schofield and Gareth Ellis honoured at Wests Tigers Dinner

By Wayne Cousins, Wests Tigers website.


Great Britain rugby league greats Ellery Hanley and Garry Schofield were tonight honoured by Wests Tigers.

Hanley and Schofield, who enjoyed stints at Balmain and Western Suburbs, were inducted into The British Chapter as part of the Tigers Hall of Fame.

They are the inaugural inductees of The British Chapter and received a standing ovation from the audience at the Wests Tigers Gala dinner at Curzon Hall, Marsfield, in front of more than 500 people.

Their attacking brilliance and the way Hanley and Schofield electrified the Tigers remain very much in the minds and hearts of Balmain supporters.

England Test second-rower Gareth Ellis was also honoured for his outstanding contribution for Wests Tigers since arriving at the Club in 2009.

Ellis was presented with the inaugural Ellery Hanley ACE Award donated by Hanley which will be presented at the end of each season to the Wests Tigers Player of the Year. It was fitting Ellis received the award for the time being after being named the Club's best player for the past three years.
