Ugly scuffle breaks out in crowd at Tigers vs Broncos

The Broncos proved far too strong for the Tigers as they secured the 34-10 victory with coach Benji Marshall left seething during his post game press conference.

Marshall took issue with a question from a journalist and assured critics the Tigers are improving despite their 10th straight loss.

Marshall was asked if the Tigers should take all their home games to Leichhardt Oval amid their horror recent record at Campbelltown.

“What do you want to do?” Marshall shot back.

“17,000 people. Yeah, our fans are great. They’ve turned up here twice in a row for home games.

“But we can’t, because of the loss, say let’s go and change everything. We just need to perform better.

“That’s a silly question, man. Yeah, don’t ask it.”

Marshall believes his side made improvements despite the six tries to two result.

“I wouldn’t say a step backwards, I thought in the first half we showed a lot of promising signs and good signs,” Marshall said.

“I thought we actually dominated the first half even though the scoreline was against us.

“But like I said to the team we have got some good things about us. We played back-to-back grand finalists two weeks in a row.

“There’s a lot of good stuff to take away, but there’s also a lot of learnings about how to manage a game and how to actually execute a game.

“And today, you know, they’re a great side. I think they’re the best team in the competition.

“But we let them get away with too many cheap things, too many soft tries, and ultimately penalties and errors just hurt us.”
