In a market that no team wishes to win, here we focus on the contenders to finish the 2024 NRL season with the most losses.

Last term, it was Wests Tigers who finished bottom of the ladder with an unenviable 20 losses from their 24 games during the regular season.

The Tigers are expected to be battling near the bottom end of the standings again this year, however, they are not the shortest price to finish with the most losses in 2024.

Let’s take a look at the contenders for this unenviable feat ahead of the new season.

St George/Illawarra Dragons  

A side that finished with 19 defeats from their 24 regular season games last term, St George/Illawarra Dragons are the 3.25 favourites to have the most losses in 2024.

The Dragons are a far cry from the side that beat Wigan Warriors in the World Club Challenge back in 2011 and head coach Shane Flanagan is desperately trying to get the team back to those dizzy heights.

After a disappointing 2023, the Dragons are a work in progress and an upturn in fortunes won’t happen overnight.

The Dragons are likely to be battling near the bottom and they are the frontrunners to finish with the most losses in this market.

Wests Tigers 

Last season’s side that suffered the most defeats, West Tigers are available at 3.50 to repeat the feat in 2024.

After the unsuccessful spell under Tim Sheens, the club have turned to Benji Marshall to try and steer them in the right direction.

The Tigers could desperately use big-money signing Jarome Luai but his deal to leave the Penrith Panthers does not begin until the end of this coming campaign.

In the meantime, Marshall will be working hard to see progress from his squad and make sure they don’t finish bottom of the pile for another year.

Canberra Raiders 

The prices jump up in this market after the Dragons and the Tigers, with the Canberra Raiders the nearest odds at 7.00.

Canberra finished in eighth place in the standings last season, but they have lost some key figures over the off-season, which could suggest tougher times ahead.

Jack Wighton, Matt Frawley, Jarrod Croker (retired), Clay Webb and Harley Smith-Shields have all moved on to pastures new.

With quality and experience leaving the club, it’s up to head coach Ricky Stuart to make sure the Raiders are looking upwards and not over their shoulders this season.

Dolphins 

Finishing in 13th place last year, with 15 defeats to their name, the Dolphins could be set for another tricky campaign.

Brenko Lee, Herman Ese'ese, Poasa Faamausili and JJ Collins won’t be with the club this season and it will be up to the likes of Herbie Farnworth, Thomas Flegler, Jake Averillo and Oryn Keeley to make an impact following their arrivals at the Dolphins.

With Wayne Bennett at the helm, the club have great experience in their head coach but they are still 9.00 to finish the 2024 campaign with the most losses.
