Round 19: Suzuki Brisbane Tigers 32 def PNG Hunters 18
Our Tigers remain in the race for a top four finish in this year’s Hostplus Cup, after claiming a come-from-behind win over the PNG Hunters in Round 19.
But the win did not come easily, with a desperate Hunters outfit racing out to a 12 to 0 lead within the opening 11 minutes.
With the Hunters’ finals hopes on the line, they went into the break up 12 to 4, with our Suzuki Brisbane Tigers’ sole first half try coming through centre Solomona Faataape.
But the Tigers ran rampant in the second half to claim the two points and keep their hopes alive for a top four finish on the Hostplus Cup ladder.
Fullback Corey Thompson said that while he was proud of the Tigers’ resilience, we need to sharpen up in the final three weeks of competition if the Tigers are to be a damaging force in the finals.
“I thought the boys were resilient. They had us under the pump for ages and we just kept defending and defending and hung onto our process and ended up coming over the top.
“We knew they were going to come out fast and we were a bit lazy in some areas. We built our pressure up and continued it into the second half.
“We cannot just rely on being resilient moving forward. We actually need to compete and kick over the top of people.
We cannot just hang in there and make errors and make excuses and hope we win the game.”
Thompson said with their final two regular games of the 2023 season to be played against competition leaders Souths Logan and third-placed Wynnum Manly, the Tigers have to focus on simply winning and not letting other results dictate where they end up.
“We have had a couple of poor few weeks and fell down to sixth. We had to win today.
“We will review today, enjoy the win and prepare for Souths Logan next week.
“We just want to win the rest of our games and not have to rely on other teams losing or points differentials. We just want to get our last four points.”
