‘Tigers sign new coach’
The Rococo Noosa Tigers have landed a massive coaching coup having acquired the services of legendary Ainslie Coach Chris Rourke just on a week ago. The 6 time Ainslie Premiership coach including a NEAFL flag among them made Rourke one of the most sought after professional AFL coaches in the country and Noosa were able to successfully win his services. The Tigers beat Ovens and Murray heavyweights Wodonga Raiders with the Noosa brand of wonderful weather, stunning beaches and a to die for lifestyle the keys to Rourkes signing.
The news has brought much positivity around the Tiger camp in a year that certainly has not gone to plan both on and off the field. Another positive for the Tigers is the support being given to a new facility by not only our federal minister Lee O’Brien but also a fantastic letter of support from AFL CEO Gill Mclachan which is just terrific with a big thank you to organiser Tony ‘Charge’ Frawley who has been a wonderful influence over the past 3 months at Tigerland.

Senior Vote Count Night is this Friday the 20th of August from 5.30 pm with all three of our senior men’s grades counting their home and away fixture votes to determine their club champions for season 2021. Who be crowned Noosas Best and Fairest in our very first year in the states best competition. Skipper Aaron Laskey surely will poll strongly after another brilliantly consistent year. Riley Buntain started the season terrifically and I’d also expect Aaron Wilson, Jai Fitzpatrick and Seb Rodgers to poll well.
Bar open Thursday night and COVID protocol training allowed this week as Tiger teams tune up for finals in a fortnight’s time.
