It’s sponsors day this Saturday at Rococo Oval as the Noosa Tigers take on Gold Coast heavyweights Palm Beach. Noosa look to register their first QAFL win in club history and more importantly get their season back on track after a heart wrenching 1 point loss at home on Easter Saturday.
Palm Beach themselves were beaten by Morningside in round one and so too will be eager to snare 4 points at Noosa this Saturday.
As mentioned earlier it’s sponsors day on the Heads of Noosa brewery lawn which always attracts a terrific crowd and is ripping day. Of course without sponsors our club just couldn’t survive so a massive thank you to all our platinum, gold, silver, bronze, signage and player sponsors for season 2021. See you down on the lawn this Saturday.
The Seniors main game will start at 1 pm followed by our colts at 3.45 pm as the Shane Dawes coached under 18s go for two in a row to start their qafl campaign.
Geoff Ogden’s reserves will kick off proceedings at 10.30 am and I’m sure Oggy will have his boys ready and champing at the bit to improve on their first round showing.
Back to the seniors and believe or not back in the pineapple hotel cup days Noosa and Palm Beach developed a fierce rivalry with both clubs competing in big finals games and even two grand finals which were shared one apiece. To be honest both clubs have continued to consistently contend ever since in their respective competitions.
Rococo Noosa tigers Senior coach Adam Bovalino saying ’I remember and cherish the rivalry I had as a player with Palm Beach particularly the 2011 grand final. But really this week we have concentrated on reviewing and rectifying the things we weren’t happy with 2 weeks ago. The focus is all on Palm Beach and it’s a shame we had the bye because the boys just can’t wait to get back out there and have a crack. I can guarantee the Tiger faithful one thing our pressure and hunt this weekend will be enormous’
Noosa again will look to skipper Laskey and team leaders Buntain and Mccrimmon to lead them in the back half whilst Meredith, Stack, Pettigrove and O’Dwyer will be looking to dominated the midfield and give gun forward Wilson opportunity after slotting four goals in an impressive debut at Weyba Rd a fortnight ago.
All set for another big day on Saturday.
Our under 13 youth girls and senior women had practise games against the North Shore Jets on Saturday with both Tiger teams looking impressive and recording solid wins. In particular the outside run, carry and take the game on style of the women’s team was a feature with co captains Cass Young (6goals) and Eliza Trompf outstanding in the victory.
No game this week for our women who begin their premiership defence against Alexander Hills in Brisbane on April 24th.
