Plenty happening down at Tigerland now the 2022 QAFL football season is upon us.

Off the field the Noosa Tigers have made some significant changes and have been working tremendously hard to get back on track and give our club the best chance of success in what really is a terrific competition.

A new board structure headed by the accomplished and esteemed former State Member for Noosa, Bruce Davidson, have been working overtime with a host of new Directors assigned to various portfolios seeking to consolidate the vision of those before us whilst looking to also expand those horizons.

Of course our biggest acquisition over the summer months was the arrival of legendary Ainslie coach, Chris Rourke. The six time premiership coach, including a NEAFL flag, has brought an exciting and positive vibe to Rococo Noosa Oval with many new recruits heading to Noosa not just for a seachange, but to play under Rourkey.

Director of Football, Ben Collins, has worked tirelessly with regard to recruiting and has gained the signatures of names such as ex-Aspley stars Jono Freeman and Tommy Templeton.

Numbers on the track have been terrific and continue to grow, conditioning guru Brendan Sainsbury has the boys as fit as ever.

Make no mistake the Noosa Tigers are in a much better position to contend in the QAFL in 2022.

There’s heaps coming up over the next month as we start practice matches.
