The Panthers downed the Tigers by eight points at Northparkes Oval on Saturday afternoon, leaving the black and golds in sixth, eight points adrift of the Bathurst Bushrangers Rebels in fourth.

From here, they need to win their last two regular season games, earn a substantial percentage boost and hope a host of other results fall their way.

But even then, they’d only be an outside chance of sneaking into the top four.

“It’s (all but) certain we won’t be there in the finals now,” Tigers skipper Mick Rothnie said, admitting 2016 has been a far cry from the last three seasons which netted flags for the club.

“It’s a bit disappointing for all of us, but that’s footy.”

The loss was compounded by Rothnie suffering a hamstring injury in just his second game back from a knee complaint.

“I did it just before half-time, it just gave way. That’s the season for me,” Rothnie said.

The Tigers trailed at the first break but led by two at half-time against Parkes, before the Panthers outscored Orange 27-17 in the second half to win 8-13-61 –8-5-53.

“We were in it, we just let it slip,” Rothnie lamented.

“We just gave away some silly free kicks and Parkes took advantage, it put the result out of reach for us really.We were more than capable of winning though.”
