We just don’t win them.
Putting 05,10 and 11 aside, must win games have cost us many other finals appearances.
2004 - Had to win one of the last three games. Lost all of them.
2007 - Had to win against Souths at a packed Leichhardt or beat last placed Newcastle at ANZ in last round. Lost both.
2009 - Lost two of the last three games after a long winning sequence. Then smashed the Top 4 Bulldogs in Round 26 to secure 9th spot.
2012 - Lost heavily to a struggling Roosters team in Round 25.
2016 - Well, Panthers were good and no Tedesco but still a must win game.
Golden Point and ‘Must Win’ games. They are impossible situations for the Tigers to win.
