Match Report: Round 4 HNW vs Mounties

Wests Tigers have suffered a 22-4 loss to Mounties in Round 4 of the Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership in the second match of Friday night’s double-header at Leichhardt Oval.

The home side was on the back foot from the outset after Mounties crossed with their first set of the match through second rower Jade Etherden.

The visitors extended their advantage to two converted tries when fullback Gayle Broughton went in after 17 minutes, taking a 12-nil lead into half time.

Brougton bagged her second try of the night just a few minutes into the second half as the rain continued to tumble.

Wests Tigers hit back with their first and only try through Tess Staines a few minutes shy of the hour mark, before Broughton chalked up her hat-trick in the dying stages.

Wests Tigers coach Brett Kimmorley was pleased with parts of his team’s game but identified a couple of problem areas.

We let ourselves down with a few really poor defensive reads that all led to tries.

We have to be much better in that area and we missed a number of scoring opportunities ourselves.”

That said I can’t question our effort.  I wanted us to show more muscle after our last start loss at North Sydney and I thought we did that.”

Kimmorley singled out debutante Losana Lutu for some well-deserved praise.

"I couldn’t ask any more of Losana. It was her first game for us at this level having played in our Tarsha Gale side this season.”

She was great. She came off the bench and I’ve already told her she’s a good chance to be starting next week.”
