Wests Tigers leadership group is committed to staying the course as the team continues to chase its first win of the season.
Next up is trip to Cronulla on Sunday, to face a Sharks side which has won three of its opening four games.
Winger Ken Maumalo says he and other senior players have been driving the standards, “I know us lads in the leadership group have been really driving things in terms of energy, standards and values that we need to stick to.
“We’ve addressed the squad as a group just to bring their energy up and the trainers have put some games together for the boys just to help us enjoy training.
“Most of our boys are quite young and need some experienced guys around them.”
Utility Tyrone Peachey admits it’s been a tough start to the season but says he couldn’t ask for more from his coach Michael Maguire.
“I told Madge today I’ve never had a coach like him,” Peachey said.
“He’s a great coach and he’s doing all the right things. It’s just us as players need to be better in those certain moments in games.
“Our defence has actually been really good. It’s just our attack hasn’t been clicking.
“There are a couple games we just lost where if we did a few things differently, we would’ve won. We’ve just got to keep getting better and improving and we’ll get the two points.”
