As has been 2019 last week was a mixed bag for the Tigers. The result of the day was probably in the Under 19s with a resilient Tigers outfit leading Southern Storm all day in an early upset over the second-placed side. This is an exciting result with the Colts in third and a possibility to take on Storm again in the finals. The Reserves kept that momentum up rolling Cygnet in the twos. before what was a disappointing result for our Seniors. Of course the women closed out the day’s festivities and they were always up against it with only 15 players, but they showed their usual fight.
Tomorrow (Saturday 10 August) sees the Senior’s last game of the Season, taking on Lindisfarne who are always a tough opponent. The Reserves and Under 19s will have the chance to test themselves against the Two Blues. At a different venue the Women will take on Kingborough at 9.30am (at Kingston Beach), best of luck to all our sides! Whilst, the Under 19s have the Bye. The appointment of our next Senior Coach is still an ongoing process, but I will, of course, take the chance on behalf of the club to thank Nathan Hartnett for stepping up in the role of Interim Coach for the second half of the season.
Next week sees a Senior & Reserves Bye with the Under 19s taking on Dodges Ferry at 9.30am and the Women up against New Norfolk at Boyer for their final game of the season. Our Reserves and Under 19s will be hoping to go deep into finals after the roster season concludes.
Tomorrow Night sees the club’s annual Black & Gold Ball. We hope you’ve got your best suits, or for the ladies perhaps a nice dress organised for the night. If not, you’d better hurry!
As far as logistics, please arrive at the Black & Gold Ball at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. We will be upstairs in the Derwent Room. We look forward to seeing you there for a great evening! A big thanks to Debbie and others for organising!
Due to Junior Finals we have had to change the 100 Club day, please see updated details below.
