Noosa Tigers Women’s Football with Graham Burgen
Last weekend, the Noosa Tigers Women’s team travelled to Landsborough to take on 4th placed Hinterland. Hinterland were coming off 3 straight wins and had just taken the big scalp of early season Premiership favourite Alexandra Hills. In cold blustery conditions the Tigers jumped out of the blocks with 2 first quarter goals and never looked back. Madi Trompf controlled the backline which had Hinterland squashed in the Tigers front half for most of the game. Ruby Hamilton and Cass Young were great around the contest. Sacha Smail with her poise off half back set up countless opportunities for our forwards and Jade Cousins with electric speed finished off the good work from up the ground with 3 goals. Another solid team performance with an even spread of contributors.
Final Score: Noosa 8.6 – 54. Hinterland 1.2 – 8
Noosa Tigers Inclusion Football with Rob Purves
The Noosa Tigers Inclusion team made the trip down the highway to play Surfers Paradise on Saturday. Arriving at Surfers the boys were keen to get going, and in the first quarter kicking against a stiff breeze, had the scoreboard ticking over with, great defensive rebounds from Graydon and Fabulous Phil, with Lachie in a new role providing great support and direction. Moving into the second quarter the Noosa boys thought the wind would do it for them, with Surfers boys closing the margin to a couple of points. After half time and a few positional moves and words of wisdom from Cam and Lachie on what we did not do in 2nd quarter the boys went to work. Noosa scored the first 5 goals of the quarter, through Hunter and Calen dominating the ruck and Wade, Dylan and Daniel H, dominating the midfield. This allowed the likes of Jordie, Adrian and Andrew to ply their trade in front of goal. This allowed the Noosa boys to go in at the last break full of confidence to finish the game off. With Daniel moving into the ruck and providing first option to the classy Noosa midfield allowed the Noosa boys time to share it around for all to score.
These games are played in great spirit from players from all teams and the big winner on the day is the smiles and stories after from all.
Noosa plays Yeronga next on 24/7/21 at Yeronga, then final match of season vs Surfers Paradise 7/8/21 prior to the Men’s Senior match vs Surfers. Culminating in the announcement of the Queensland team to travel to Adelaide for State Inclusion Carnival.
Anyone interested in joining – training is on Wednesday evenings from 5.00pm- 6.30pm or contact Coach Rob Purves on 0433 240 005.
A big congratulations to former Noosa Junior Maggie Harmer who was named in the all Australian Under 19’s team last week. Of course, both Maggie and Bella Smith await the AFLW draft within the next fortnight with both firmly tipped to be drafted which would be just amazing.
A massive day at Rococo oval this Saturday as the Noosa Tigers take on archrivals Maroochydore in what should be a mouth-watering clash. Whilst respective ladder positions suggest that the Roos are firm favourites, I don’t think this matters when it comes to these two clubs. With 1980/81 and 2010/11 Premiership reunions being celebrated on the day and Essendon legend Terry Daniher entertaining our President’s Luncheon, I’m sure a large pro Noosa crowd will attempt to get the home town over the line. With four games of footy, this Saturday is not to be missed. It will be a ripping day!
