Stick tight and things will turn

Wests Tigers five eighth Jock Madden is hopeful his team’s tight bond will soon lead to better results.

The 22-year-old rookie has emerged as one of the club’s best performers in recent weeks filing in for Jackson Hastings who still has two matches of a three-game suspension to serve.

Jock not dwelling on old mistakes

“We’re such a close group”, Madden said.

Results haven’t shown yet on the field but we’ve always stuck by one another.

“It’s still early rounds. We’ve looked at some of the things we need to fix and parts of it we’re only inches away.”

Madden is confident things will soon click ahead of Sunday’s trip too Cronulla. “We do rip in at training Our intensity’s been very high lately and we’re just looking forward to this weekend now, and putting our best performance out against the Sharks.”

The Scone Thoroughbreds junior says he’s loved being in the run-on side and wants to stay there.

“As a young kid growing up, all I wanted to do was play first-grade and I’m getting to do that now”, Madden stated.

“I want to keep my spot in the first-grade team and play week-in, week-out.

“I’ve just got to put my best foot forward each week and go out with a good mindset”.

Wests Tigers are away to Cronulla Sharks this Sunday 10th April. Kick-off is at 4.05pm.

Wests Tigers play Cronulla Sharks as the curtain-raiser in the Jersey Flegg Cup at 1.45pm.
