Gentle to leave Tigers at seasons' end

Wests Tigers can confirm Assistant Coach Peter Gentle will leave the Club at season's end to take up a Head Coaching role in the English Super League.

From November, Gentle will occupy the lead role at Hull FC for the next three years.

Before joining Wests Tigers at the end of 2005, Gentle was the premiership winning Western Suburbs SG Ball Coach in 2002, a side that included a young Bryce Gibbs and Liam Fulton.

He was also the Coach of the inaugural 2008 U20s team - overseeing the raw talent of Tim Moltzen, Rob Lui, Blake Ayshford, Simon Dwyer and Aaron Woods - in conjunction with his role as Assistant NRL Coach.

Gentle said that he was grateful for the opportunity that Wests Tigers had given him.
