Dear oh Dear that was ordinary…… Middle of the ruck was a disaster, Easts made a heap of breaks in that area and the markers just didn’t work.
Are Balmain able to hold onto the ball??? it seems not.
At least this week the wingers tried to take some pressure of the forwards during the game by taking some runs which was an improvement however, that was about it. The Ref didn’t help the Tigers but that didn’t decide the game, a lack of enthusiasm and some pretty ordinary play and no commitment in defence were the deciding factors.
A Tigers try pulled back by the ref at 6-6 may have had an impact on the result as 12-6 with a roll on may have been a different story however, the Tigers didn’t look good after that and really were never in the hunt from then on.
Need to really lift against the Panthers next week and I am sure there will be a huge rocket going off this week at training.
Everyone at the Tigers knows they can get the job done and it all starts on Tuesday at training.
I think there may be a rocket coming for some of the boys this week
