Full disclosure - this isn't going to be the most positive edition of the Wests Tigers Podcast. It's pretty dark in Tiger Town at the moment and we, as two devoted Wests Tigers fans, are feeling pretty flat about not just the team, but the Wests Tigers organisations as a whole. On this edition we look back at the disappointing performance against the Raiders. On episode 34 we also cover: The underwhelming experience that was a night out at Bankwest Stadium. The 20 years of continuing under performance of the club. The ongoing contract discussions surrounding the club. Missing out on the signature of Dallin Watene-Zelezniak. Talk about Moses Mbye being dropped to the bench. Weird recent team selections. See, we said there wasn't a lot to be really positive about! Most importantly, don't forget to have your say in the comment section, send us a message here, get us on Facebook or leave a comment on this thread on the Wests Tigers Forum.
