Tiger Talk – 11 August 2016


COCKTAIL PARTY PAYMENTS ARE DUE — arrange with Debbie Huxley tonight or pay at the bar (this event is just 9 days away!)


Some weeks are sent to challenge us and others are just so good, well this one was in the good category even though we didn’t take four points in any of the games.  Firstly we look at our under 18’s who undoubtedly played some of their best football for the year. A fulltime score of four goals and two behinds was a good start given they were playing the fourth team on the ladder (if their percentage was better they would be third). The Tigers ran the ball well contested and looked probably should have kicked another four goals during the game. On Saturday they are our only team playing, with the other sides having the bye. We hope the trek down to Dodges Ferry is a safe and rewarding one (game starts at 9.30am). Best of luck to our colts!

Our Reserves are a different kettle of fish and just when I think I have figured out this side they do something ordinary.  Saturday saw the reserves line up with five of their best players out and to be honest I thought we might struggle, how wrong you can be? The first quarter saw us run hard, contest the ball and at quarter time we held a slender lead of 5 points.  The second quarter saw Lindisfarne challenge us and the half time siren gave them a 14 point advantage. From the half way mark we did not contest well and allowed Lindisfarne to score at will with a disappointing result especially given the half time score.

The seniors was another super game with strong contests all over the ground.  Jarratt Horton’s return to the seniors gave us drive from the rucking contests and our defence (in particular Callan Newman and Jacob Campbell) held Lindisfarne at bay.  Half time saw Lindisfarne with a 13 point lead and the Tigers were looking good. The half time break rejuvenated our boys and we were firing up in the third quarter to a point where at three quarter time the Tigers led by two points. This was extended out to 8 points early in the last. But former Tiger Michael Clark put our hopes to the flame, kicking a large haul in the last to shake off an upset against the undefeated “Two” Blues.
