The Wests Tigers’ two-game winning streak came to an abrupt end on Sunday afternoon after another collapse.

It was the third time this season that the Tigers conceded attempts in three straight sets.
Jacob Liddle crossed the chalk just before the break and helped Michael Maguire’s team to come into halftime despite a gap of eight points.
All hopes for three straight wins were quickly dashed, however, as the Parramatta triumvirate Waqa Blake, Mitchell Moses and Maika Sivo each with four within four minutes Points were running.
Parramatta Halfback Mitchell Moses went from zero to hero in a breathtaking 15-minute transformation that knocked the Wests Tigers down at Bankwest Stadium on Sunday night.
The Eel s led at halftime by just eight, but a Moses-inspired three-attempt lightning bolt in the first 10 minutes of the second half resulted in an overwhelming 40:12 win.
Moses held his head in his hands and held it up as a man-of-the-match. Moses scored one try and constructed two more early in the second half after screwing up an easy foursome earlier.
The No. 7 swallowed a cultivator kick from Clint Gutherson four minutes before half-time and showed up for a specific try and a 20-0 lead for the Eels.
But when the bunker got it under the Took magnifying glass, he found the slightest bump and refused to try.
The Tigers made the most of letting go, swept the other end of the field and hit through Jacob Liddle.
That way, a 20-point score -The lead reduced to a nervous eight-point lead and it went on again.
« It was the bomb attempt of the year. At 20-0 it was game over, ”said four-time Premiership winner Cooper Cronk.
Moses could have crawled into a hole, but he took it upon himself to make up for the embarrassing mistake.
It was his roof-high bomb shortly after the break that a ball dropped by Tiger’s full-back Daine Laurie forced so Waqa Blake could pick up the scraps and hit under the post.
Moses did it all himself two minutes later, cutting and overtaking the defense in a thrilling 65-yard run to the line.
As an encore, he produced a couple of double pumps before sending Maika Sivo into the corner and kicking the sideline conversion after 50 minutes.
It swept Parramatta to an unassailable 32-6 lead – all three attempts came while Tiger striker Shawn Blore was in the sin box for a professional foul.
« I think he owed that to the site and he paid it back very quickly, » said Parramatta’s great Peter Sterling of Moses’ one-man show.
Eel striker Isaiah Papali’i ended the game in the sin container after he was reported for dropping a knee to Luciano Leilua.
