The Wests Tigers season has continued to go from bad to worse after their 28-22 loss to Parramatta Eels.
Sitting last at 0-6, the Tigers have a much needed bye coming up in round 7 which Wade Graham and Aaron Woods stated on Footy Talk that a proper reset is long due for the club.
‘I think mentally they need to be freshened up,’ said Wade Graham.
‘What’s happened has happened.
‘We’re going to have to deal with this and take our medicine.
‘We need you to take four, five days off and not think about footy.’
Yet, regardless, the Tigers will now have to play the rest of the season without one of their biggest stars.
A third ACL injury to Adam Doueihi has left the club shattered as footy fans of all clubs have showed their sympathies towards the Lebanon international.
Graham, who has injured his own ACL in the past, remains hopeful we will see Doueihi sooner rather than later.
‘My thoughts go out to him, I hope to see him on the field next year at some stage,’ said Graham.
‘It’s a devastating blow for the young man and the Tigers.
‘I’m shattered for [him].’
