‘It’s an embarrassment for the NRL’: Experts slam ‘pathetic’ Tigers for ‘diabolical’ loss to Raiders

‘It’s an embarrassment for the NRL’: Fox League pundits SLAM Tigers over ‘diabolical’ 56-10 loss to Canberra as ‘absolutely pathetic’ Wests end dismal season with wooden spoon for first time in club history

  • Canberra defeated the Tigers 56-10 on Sunday to earn the finals spot
  • Wests finish with the wooden spoon for the first time in their history
  • Raiders scored seven tries in the first half and led 42-0 at the break
  • Corey Parker and Michael Ennis called Wests ’embarrassing’

NRL analysts were gambling on the “pathetic” Wests Tigers, whose already disastrous season ended in a “diabolical” 56-10 collapse against Canberra on Sunday at the Leichhardt Oval.

While the Raiders cemented their Finals spot a year ago after missing Round 25, there was nothing for the Tigers bar to celebrate that the season is finally over.

Wests finished with the wooden spoon for the first time in their history, scoring the fewest goals of any team in the competition and conceding the second most goals behind the Warriors.

In their final game of the season, the Tigers sat in their rage and were 42-0 down at half-time in front of their fans.

‘The Wests Tigers, pathetic. The Canberra Raiders, on fire. What can I say? I’m almost speechless,” Braith Anasta said on the Fox League.

The Tigers were defeated 72-6 by the Sydney Roosters two weeks ago and were similarly inept on Sunday, allowing seven first-half tries.

When it came to Fox, former Broncos star Corey Parker didn’t hold back.

‘[It’s] Diabolical, for their last home game,

“I mean, the fans showed up, they showed up to see a little performance and 42-0 at halftime is absolutely pathetic.

‘It’s embarrassing, [they lost] 72-6 just a few weeks ago. [It’s the] last game at home and they show up and let everyone in that shirt down.

Michael Ennis went even further, describing the Tigers as an embarrassment to the NRL.

The abject Tigers have won just four of their 24 games this season, a terrible return

“It’s not just the first half that’s embarrassing, the club are embarrassing at the moment with what they’re dishing up in the competition,” he said.

The Tigers end 2022 with a 4-20 record and it will take more than Tim Sheens’ return as head coach to bring them anywhere near a finalist.

Sheens, who led the Tigers to their last Premier League in 2005, will take charge for the next two seasons, with club legend Benji Marshall replacing him at the helm for the next three years.

The 71-year-old Sheens served as the club’s boss of football this season but agreed to return to coaching next year after the Tigers fired Michael Maguire with West’s 13th up the ladder in June.

Meanwhile, after a season-ending rally, the Raiders will head into the finals with confidence.

Canberra have won seven of their last eight games and head to Melbourne next weekend for their elimination final knowing they’ve beaten the Storm at AAMI Park on four consecutive visits.
