The Tigers got out to a good start last weekend against the Bulldogs holding a 14-6 lead at half time despite only 41% territory. But it was the second half where it all fell apart, the territory rate went down to 26% and they had only 5 Tackles Inside 20m.

The pressure put on by the Bulldogs was too much to handle and the Tigers allowed two tries and two penalty goals in the second half to end the day with a loss.
