The Week Gone:
Last week in the SFL and SFLW saw a tough round for the Tigers, with the Under 18s starting off the day with a win over Claremont. They never quite got away from the Magpies, but managed their way to a 34 point win. The Reserves started ok, but switched off after halftime to get a lesson going down by 49 points. The Seniors gave a mixed bag, starting off with the first couple of goals before conceding seven in a row, in a poor spell across the first quarter and half the second quarter. The Tigers kicked a couple before halftime to peg Claremont back and go in 19 points down. The Tigers played a strong second half to hit the lead at various points in the last quarter. But we couldn’t get the job done, with that lapse in the first and second quarter coming back to cost us the four points. We’re left percentage outside the top five now, with a tense battle coming up between ourselves, Dodges Ferry and Cygnet for the fourth and fifth positions. The Tigers needing to win this week and then pinch an upset over Huonville or Lindisfarne to put our fate in our own hands.
A great night was had by all last Saturday night at the Hobart Function Centre for the Black & Gold Ball, a big thankyou to Heath Neville for organising the night. We were hoping to have some photos of the wonderful night to include with this week”s Tiger Talk but they should be featured next week instead (apologies for the inconvenience). Everyone enjoyed themselves, even the Women’s side were in strong attendance before backing up the next day against New Norfolk for their second win of the season! The ladies dominated the match taking home a 62 point win, which could have been more but for kicking an inaccurate 9.14 on the day.
This Saturday sees us conducting our gate raffle and collecting donations to support Ronald McDonald House – please dig deep and support the cause. The first prize in the raffle is a scenic flight for 2 over Hobart. Please support Ronald McDonald House Hobart and grab your tickets at the game.
