NRL: Tamou fires Tigers rallying call

Wests Tigers co-captain James Tamou has told the players they need to pick themselves up and go again as they look to bounce back from yet another loss at the weekend.

The Tigers are priced at 14/1 to make the top eight and play finals but the way things are going they will miss out for an 11th straight season.

Warriors defeat

The Tigers are under heavy pressure and were in need of a morale-boosting win when they entertained the Warriors on Friday night.

However they slipped to a narrow 16-12 loss to leave them 0-3 from the opening three rounds of the 2022 NRL campaign.

Next up they travel to the Gold Coast to take on the Titans on Thursday night and Tamou has warned the rest of the squad it is no time to start feeling sorry for yourself.

The co-captain says strong bodies and minds will be needed if they are to turn around the slump in form and they need to raise the game in training this week.

Tamou wants reaction

"It's so important because this instance was a short turnaround if we're already training to think about the Titans," Tamou said.

"If you're still thinking about the game and kicking stones and dragging your lip, you're a passenger to us, you're no good right now to us.

"So, we need you to be focused and really need you to do your job. We don't need you to think about what you didn't do in the past. You can't change that.

"As a leader, I wouldn't say it's a challenge but that's something that's definitely a mission every week."
