Broncos stretch Wests Tigers's losing streak

6:18 am on 7 April 2012

The one-time NRL premiership favourites, the Wests Tigers, have slumped to a fifth straight defeat with an 18-14 loss to Brisbane in Sydney.

Desperately needing a win to stay in touch with the top eight, the Tigers struggled to stay with a Broncos side that could have had the game sewn up midway through the opening half if only they hadn't butchered two try-scoring opportunities.
