RUGBY LEAGUE

After a 64-6 loss to the Cowboys, the assignments keep getting tougher for the Tigers.

All the players can do is put it behind them and move on.

It's been a difficult few weeks for the club, but players can't dwell on a result like that. It's part and parcel of being an NRL player.

The challenge now is to test themselves against the reigning premiers on Saturday night, and it's a challenge everyone at the club should be looking forward to.

This columnist has already spoken about the need for leadership at the Tigers and why the NRL-appointed board members need to come in quickly to help the future direction of the club.

So, without covering old ground, the focus now has to switch to getting as much out of the final month of competition as possible.

Finals look unlikely now, even if the Tigers win all their games. But the team can still have an impact in the competition, with the Roosters, Bulldogs, Raiders and Sharks to come.
