A pretty busy weekend at Tigerland with practice games and our Annual Golf Day last weekend. The Senior men had their first upgraded hitout with a intraclub practice march in ‘Darwin’ like conditions and from the very outset really put their heads over the footy.
It’s amazing what a new coach can bring in regard to enthusiasm with the entire playing group on an equal playing field and competition fierce for senior spots. Big Jono Freeman was just unstoppable at full forward with his superior body work and high marking a feature of the days play. Tyler Stack racked up a heap of possessions on his wing setting up many forward entries with clever talk and sublime foot skills.
Youngsters Mav Pettigrove and Tommy Maher also very strong around the centre and particularly in the coal face. Pettigrove in particular just brilliant with his decision making and skill execution. Usual suspects Fitzpatrick, Buntain, Laskey and O’Dwyer provided the strong local support with plenty throughout the day whilst up forward Aaron Wilson worked his heart out the entire day. Lachy Flagg and Charlie Bance also standouts in the hit out.
New Senior Coach Chris Rourke super happy with the intraclub game as the Senior Men now head down the Bruce Highway to face Division 1 team Wynnum in a 6 quarter affair this Saturday from 11am.
All Junior training back on from Tuesday and Thursday this week as grading games start the weekend
of March the 18th.
Our Inclusion boys and girls hit the track this Wednesday from 5pm as they start their 2022 campaign.
The Annual Golf day once again a resounding success with a big thank you to Tony and Michael Jedynak and Bart Jaques for their ongoing organisation for what is a truly great day!
