‘Big Jono reeks havoc again’
Ex Brisbane Lion and Aspley VFL player Jono Freeman has shown the Tiger faithful for the second week in a row that his height and strength up forward will give the Rococos Noosa Tigers a significant edge in season 2022. And whilst the game again Division 1 side Wynnum was always in Noosa’s control (as it should be), the powerhouse figure of Freeman up forward was just so evident. Freeman finished with 7.3 in three quarters following the 9.4 he booted in last weekends intraclub practice match. His arms just seem to go up higher than his opponents plus I must admit he had some pretty good delivery also from a pretty impressive midfield.
Ex Bulldog and A Grade Amateur star Josh Wallis dominated through the midfield racking up 29 touches and booting 3 goals in a super impressive performance whilst Tic Tok sensation Tommy Baulch was just as eye catching up forward with four goals. Recruit Ethan Johnston looked really lively up forward also whilst the performance of hard man Seb Rogers in the centre was again really noticeable. Laskey, Fitzpatrick and Buntain were prominent in their areas as usual in what was a pretty good hit out after not much luck with practice matches due to the floods and general increment weather.
This week sees the Noosa Boys head down the Sunshine Motorway to play Caloundra on Saturday with the Senior game to start at 2pm. Should be a quality hit out against last years runners-up in the Division 1 competition. Definitely worth the look!
A massive weekend of footy with the AFL season underway and our Tigers Youth and Junior teams completing their first weekend of grading fixtures!
A full day of junior footy at Rococo oval on Sunday!
Good luck to all teams representing the mighty Noosa Tigers this weekend and remember to either get down to training each Thursday night or look at our ‘Noosa Tigers Facebook’ page as we rebuild our website for all that’s going on at Tigerland.
Go Tigers – Cheers, Pittsy
