Rampant Roosters demolish Tigers

Sydney Roosters defeat the Wests Tigers by 44 points in a dominant display at Leichhardt Oval.

PT0M0S 620 349

There are no signs of Wests Tigers misery ending as the troubled club suffered their second-successive humiliating defeat in a week, slumping to a 48-4 loss to Sydney Roosters on their hallowed turf of Leichhardt Oval.

There's usually something about a waterlogged Leichhardt Oval that brings out the best in the Tigers, as both Manly and Melbourne have experienced in the past, yet they did little but sink against the Roosters on Saturday night in perhaps the greatest sign of their struggles.

There was nearly 30 minutes left to play when the first fans headed for the exits as the pain of last week's 58-point humiliation in Townsville was compounded by yet another hefty defeat for the troubled Tigers. The have now conceded 112 points in a week.

It was almost a carbon copy of their loss to the Cowboys as they looked void of morale, purpose and determination. If there was any respect in the scoreline, it was only due to the Roosters poor handling in the wet which prevented the scoreboard operator at the ground from suffering exhaustion. 

A little over 5,000 of the bravest and most hopeful fans turned up desperately seeking a bounce-back  but were dealt an immediate blow before they were given a chance to settle into their seats.

Two minutes into the game, Michael Jennings pounced on some hapless defending by the Tigers to run unchallenged onto a Mitchell Pearce grubber to score beneath the posts.

It was an ominous sign that another lopsided contest loomed on a miserable night in Leichhardt yet the reigning champions struggled to get out of their own half as the rain continued to poor.

Simple errors, costly turnovers and an inability to match their defensive aggression in their attack, meant the Roosters spent almost a quarter of an hour in their own area. It was an impressive feat for the troubled Tigers but in truth, they were made to look better than they were. 

For all their impressive field position, they failed to register a single point before the break and even more worrying for coach Mick Potter, they never looked close to crossing the line. Their best chance came through the Chris Lawrence on the right flank but a try in his 150th game was prevented by some stern defending by Daniel Tupou. There was solace in the scoreboard only reading 8-0 to the Roosters as the Tigers headed for the tunnels with a deficit they probably would've been happy with before the match.

Though, it didn't remain in tact much longer after the restart. A careless penalty gave the Roosters an early view of the line and that was all the invitation Sam Moa needed as he crashed his way through to score beside the upright. It proved to be the try that opened the floodgates as the Tigers appeared as sapped of morale as they were of points. This became evident as Shaun Kenny-Dowall broke through the line with ease to set up veteran fullback Anthony Minichiello to score without any pressure. 

"The Count" had his second shortly after with a similar supporting run for an Aidan Guerra linebreak and yet again placed the ball under the black dot to extend the lead to 26 points. Jared Warea-Hargreaves, Kenny-Dowall and Daniel Tupou joined the scorers list as the Roosters ran riot against the deflated Tigers. A try for debutant Jy HItchcox was a mere consolation for Wests. 

The result relieves some of the pressure on the Roosters' difficult run home as they open a four-point gap on the ninth placed Eels. The champions have all but clinched a top eight finish and may be assured of finals football with potentially one win against either the Warriors, Storm and Rabbitohs.

  • Geez just a crowd just over 5000.
    Can the Tigers afford to keep playing at Leichhardt. I think if the people dont start turning up at the games then the club will have no alternative than to play there games elsewhere.

    Cant go to Campbelltown, the people there dont want to support Balmain either.

    The NRL should rebrand the club, I think its too late to save the Balmain Tigers. Give the licence to somebody who can unite a region or state and not to a suburb that doesn't even have a club house

    • Benny, the entity you appear to be referring to is the Wests Tigers, not the Balmain Tigers who, for the moment, form one half of the WT Joint Venture with the Western Suburbs Magpies formed some 15 years ago. I agree that Leichhardt Oval is outdated. Campbelltown on the other hand, is a first class facility and, properly promoted with decent games against Sydney based clubs like Souths, Bulldogs with strong siupporter bases and less supporter-less out of town clubs like the Cowboys, Broncos, Storm et al) would draw better than decent crowds. The club has, arguably, the best group of top class young players in the NRL. Injuries and off field dramas have killed the club's finals prospects this year. Hopefully 2015 will be kinder on the injury front at least and the team will start to realise its considerable potential

    • Gee, Honest Benny from Rozelle, a crowd of 5000 on a cold,extremely wet Saturday night at Leichhardt Oval prompts you to call for the immediate dissolution of the Tigers, or so it seems. Have you never been to Leichhardt on a fine Sunday afternoon? Having said that, it seems that your ignorance of the club becomes quite apparent when you refer to the Balmain Tigers, when it is actually Wests Tigers who play at Leichhardt and Campbelltown; Balmain DRLFC is half of the joint venture, Benny.
      "The NRL should rebrand the club"; to what, Benny? The SMH is full of comments from people who suggest that this should happen, or that should happen, without one iota of a clue as to an actual solution. "I think its too late to save the Balmain Tigers"; see comment above re Wests Tigers. "Give the licence to somebody (Pray tell, who, Benny?? See comment above re lacking clues!) who can unite a region or state (region or state???) and not to a suburb that doesn't even have a club house"; Tigers have two licensed clubs, one at Five Dock and the other at Flemington Markets. This came about due to the fiasco involving Balmain Leagues Club, the State Government and Leichhardt Council (your council, Benny!!), and has little to do with any waning support for the Tigers, who remain a very strong brand. Finally, Benny, a club house is not the same thing as a licensed club. Maybe you should undertake Football 101 before committing your views electronically, so that your contribution actually becomes relevant. Cheers.

    • Fair comment Honest Benny. The Tigers are in no mans land and they have their internal problems to go with it.

    • With 112 points scored against his team in two matches,Coach Potter must be feelin very uneasy.

      Maybe Farrah was correct in his assessment of Potters ability as a coach

      • Potter didn't drop a ball or miss a tackle last night. Though to be fair neither did Anasta, Nofoauluma, Simona, Richards, Tedesco, Akauola, Fulton, Gavet, Lulia or Thompson. That's 10 out of the starting 17 that the Tigers began the year with... all off the field. How do you reckon most teams would go without 10 of their starters?

    • Is it any coincidence that in the last 6 days the 2 smallest crowds of the year have turned up to watch the chooks?
