Noosa Tigers Ladies Day 2021

‘It’s Ladies Day’

This Saturday sees the Rococo Noosa Tigers celebrate our annual ladies day with a special ladies day luncheon starting at 11AM in the clubrooms (Game starts at 1PM). Comedian Vanessa Mitchell will be the guest speaker in what is always a great function. Our women’s team have the bye this week after stringing 4 wins in a row to be firmly amongst the premiership contenders however it is only May and plenty of footy to be played.

Co captain Cass Young has dominated this far with her attack on the footy and scoring prowess with Keirra Massoud also a revelation in the ruck and up forward. Youngster Hannah McKenzie has shown plenty in her first year of senior women’s footy whilst Jade Cousins has taken to the game like a fish to water showcasing some sublime poise and skill throughout the year thus far. I’m sure with the bye this week there will be plenty of our Tiger ladies enjoying the luncheon and in general celebrating their day!

We have an amazing group of mothers who continually put their hands up to help wherever possible whether it be managing junior teams, game day duties, bar and canteen work and of course at both senior and junior committee levels. On behalf of the footy club thank you and of course to all of the players wives and girlfriends who don’t realise it but are a massive part of the Noosa Tigers fabric.

Of course our ladies will be treated to a first class game of QAFL footy when Gold Coast powerhouse and undefeated ladder leader Palm Beach take on the winless tigers in what should be intriguing viewing. The Noosa lads were extremely disappointing last Saturday going down to Mt Gravatt by near on 15 goals in a result that 2021 Club President did not see coming: ’We just didn’t come to play. We started terribly and really it didn’t get much better. At this standard if you don’t bring it each week you will get found out. We had a much stronger side on paper than the previous few weeks but that means nothing if it doesn’t carry onto the field. We’d certainly want to bring it this week or it could get ugly’ said Rob Purvis. Skipper Aaron Laskey was easily the Tigers best last week whilst Seb Rogers again was more than serviceable in an array of positions.

This writer had the pleasure of watching Noosa juniors Bella Smith and Maggie Harmer represent Queensland in Melbourne on Sunday and both did themselves proud despite going down to a pretty skilful victory country outfit. Of course both girls are in their ‘draft year’ with plenty more interstate trials to come.

Good luck to all those teams representing the Noosa Tigers this weekend and see you at the footy!
