It was a historic week in Australian soccer, with news that the Matildas would be inking a deal that would see them earn the same pay as that of the Socceroos, their male counterparts.

The deal will make the Matildas the world’s first female team to be guaranteed the same money as the men’s team, and with good reason: the Matildas are currently ranked eighth in the world, compared with the Socceroos’ ranking of 44.

ASX SMALL CAP LOSERS

Tubi (ASX:2BE) -51%

The week’s biggest faller, industrial pipe maker Tubi, shed half its value this week after issuing a profit downgrade.

The company believes demand for its pipes in the North American petroleum sector is likely to decline, so it has adjusted plans for its industrial plants in Texas.

Tubi had forecast pre-tax earnings of $6.1m and statutory earnings of $9.5m. Now it anticipates these figures to be $1.8m and $100,000 respectively.
