Well what a massive day had by all at Weyba Rd on Saturday. Whilst none of the senior men’s teams got the result they wanted, a wonderful presidents luncheon, two premiership reunions and a solid victory by our top of the table women’s team ensured plenty of happy patrons.
In fact the crowd was massive as the two 51 year rivals once again bashed and crashed into each other in what was really a very entertaining first half. It was only half way through the third stanza that the finals bound Roos took a stranglehold on the winless tigers to run away 8 goal victors.
Teenager Shadeau Brain was just outstanding for the Tigers and received the Doug Murray $100 award whilst skipper Aaron Laskey again dominated the entire day and got his half a dozen coronas for his efforts. The captain is really having a wonderful season.
Both our colts and reserves started well. Like the seniors but were over an in the end by more skillfull outfits.
A great victory for our Mischief Hair women’s team who continue to go from strength to strength. Ipswich provided strong opposition and this writer believes they will be there at the end but the class of Cass Young, Ruby Hamilton and the Trompf girls was too much in front of a ripping night time crowd.
Essendon great Terry Daniher was superb at our third presidents lunch for 2021. His raw and ‘bushy’ way of reflecting on his sporting life was just so refreshing!
A massive thank you to all those who helped set up and run the luncheon.
Carlton great Jimmy Buckley our next speaker on Saturday August the 7th. A real larrikin of our great game and one not to be missed!
Great to see so many wonderful faces from both our 1980/81 and 2010/11 premiership reunions. Names like Townsend, Fox, Gunn, Roberson and Gardiner all making it down to the footy whilst plenty of the 10/11 boys loved the luncheon and I’m sure enjoyed a wonderful weekend!
The men are away to Wilston Grange this Saturday with all three grades heading down the Bruce confident they can come home with the 4 points. It would be great to have a few of the Tiger faithful come down and cheer the boys on!
Our women are away to Sandgate as they attempt to continue this terrific winning streak.
Best of luck to Noosa girls Bella Smith and Maggie Harmer as their draft week approaches early next week and of course to all those teams representing the Noosa Tigers within our junior ranks this weekend.
