Loss leaves Tigers with work to do VERA BERTOLA THE 2009 Foundation Cup un- earthed a truth that Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens already knew, but the 16-12 loss to Sydney Roosters rammed the point home. There's work to be done before the team's NRL kick-off on March 16. To be fair, a trial is just that: to iron out positions, make adjust- ments and tweak the team. And on Saturday night, even though the Tigers trailed 12-6 at half-time the final scoreline was nothing of which to be ashamed. But the honour of the Foun- dation Cup was also at stake. The Roosters already had the first two under their belt and the game also took an off-field dimen- sion with former Wests Tigers CEO Steve Noyce now at the helm of the rival club. New chief executive officer Scott Longmuir, keen to get the pre-season off to a solid start, was disappointed but not unhappy. ''There was some really positive elements out of the game,'' he said. ''Benji just got better and better at halfback as the game went on, the forward pack was solid and the battle for the fullback position, between Shannon Gallant and Shannon McDonnell . . . both played really well.'' Longmuir predicted captain Robbie Farah, rehabilitating from a back injury, would be available for the trial against NSW Cup club Shellharbour Dragons on March 6 at Ron Costello Oval. ''His back is fine, we're just making sure it is spot on,'' he said.
