The BUSS stops in Noosa!

By March 15, 2022No Comments2 min read

In another huge signing to the club and a big bolster to our already strong forward line, Noosa have been able to lock in the signing off MPNFL Powerhouse forward Michael Bussey. The Big Buss has strong links to the Rourke family and is best mates with another signed player, Tom Rourke. Buss was up in Noosa over the Christmas holidays and lucky for us he fell in love with the place. Bussey up in our forward half with the links of Jono Freeman and Aaron Wilson is going to be a real sight for Tigers supporters in 2022!
