Wests Tigers were defeated by the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 22-8 at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Sunday.
After a gruelling first half, Wests Tigers were unable to get back in the contest in the second half despite tries to Mahe Fonua and Luke Garner, and will look to bounce back next Friday night when they take on the Penrith Panthers at home.
It was a tough afternoon as a whole on Sunday at Campbelltown with the club's Canterbury Cup and Jersey Flegg sides also suffering tight defeats, but the news was better for the women's program with the club's Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership side notching their first win along with a victory for Tarsha Gale.
In junior representative competitions, Balmain got the job done over North Sydney in both Harold Matthews and SG Ball while Western Suburbs suffered heavy defeats at the hands of the Bulldogs. With just one game remaining in the regular season, only the Tigers' SG Ball side is confirmed a place in the finals, with the Harold Matthews side needing to win their final game against to finish in the top eight.
