Tigers take the sting out of the hornets
The Rococoâ€™s Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers took care of the 6th placed Aspley at Weyba road last weekend on a glorious Saturday afternoon for footy. After a very slow and sluggish start, the Tigers trailed by 5 goals early in the first quarter however from quarter time onwards it was all Noosa.
The home sideâ€™s ball movement and run was far superior with several great options up forward – none more dominant than young ruckman Connor McDonald. The ruckman and forward bagged 7 goals in a standout performance in front of a strong Noosa crowd which featured plenty of past players and a large and boisterous luncheon fraternity who applauded the voice and stories of ex Australian cricket coach Darren Lehmann.
Gun on-baller Nick Hill was a standout in the centre for Noosa racking up a game high 37 possessions with skipper Aaron Laskey again prominent across half back. Big Jake Stewart presented beautifully across centre half forward to again be among the best with returning goal sneak Sammy Faure booting 4 goals and the clever Jai Fitzpatrick 3. Tiger favourite and tough man Peter Trompf showed his usual grit and courage to be among the tigers best in what was a really pleasing and solid win for the home side.
A trip down to Brisbane this Saturday to take on cellar dwellers Yeronga as coach Sammy Faure will be hoping to shore up selection and attempt to get some continuity with personnel as we head towards the business end. Exciting times at â€˜Tigerlandâ€™ with our next home game under lights against the Steve Moody coached Caloundra Panthers. Great day had by all at â€˜Boofâ€™ Lehmann s luncheon and a big thank you to all that helped in putting the show together.
Catch you at the footy!
