The players returned to the locker room and made their way to their seats before the Tigers lost for the fourth straight weekend.

Sydney played three quarters on the road last weekend against Greater Western Sydney, but it would take Saturday’s drubbing to lift the Sharks, who have won 12 games at the MCG in the past 11 games.
But it was a tough night for Giants forward Daniel Merrett, who said he could have been more effective on the day.
“It was a hard game, definitely,” Merrett said.
“I didn’t do a lot of things to help the team when they went on the back foot, there were definitely certain games where I didn’t know what I was doing and I still took that into today’s game.
“It wasn’t시흥안마 good enough when we got back down after winning the game. We need to play a team game and that’s the biggest thing today for us is we need to play a team game.
“I’ve talk로투스 홀짝ed to the boys and there’s a lot of frustration on my behalf.”
Gold Coast will have its sights set on its first two wins of the round, while the Tigers have yet to score a goal in their past five games.
