Well finally here we are at round one! And what a mammoth challenge lies in front of the Rococo Noosa Tigers as all three Senior Mens grades head down to the Gold Coast to play QAFL heavyweights Broadbeach on Saturday. The defending champions will be unveiling their 2021 Premiership Flag in front of what is expected to be a bumper crowd for the opening of the states premier Aussie Rules competition.
One thing this pundit can guarantee to the Tiger faithful is that this years 2022 crop are fit, heaps taller and stronger, and are ready to compete at this level. At our Season Launch last Saturday, which was just a fantastic day, new head coach Chris Rourke told the Tiger supporters that he was really pleased with what he had seen so far. ‘I really can’t fault them. They have worked very hard and have been led by some outstanding team leaders. The standards they have pushed has been terrific and I’ll tell you all one thing, we are here to compete with anyone’.
Speaking of the Season launch, what a wonderful action packed day it was with Jas Bishoff and crew providing live music, Rococo – our major sponsors – cooking up a treat out on the deck and our coaches, players, sponsors, members and supporters all chiming in to make it a great day and way to launch what should be a very exciting year. A massive thank you to Mandy Tupper, Jane Davis, Benny Collins and auctioneer Ashley Trompf who made the day what it was and I’m sure will be a long standing tradition!
And what about the superb Senior debut of former Noosa Tiger. Maggie Harmer with the Brisbane Lions Womens team on Saturday as they smashed the Pies to move in the Preliminary Final at the home of footy, the MCG next Saturday.
Awesome effort Mags and all at the Noosa Tigers wish you all the very best this weekend!
Speaking of our Women, the Noosa Senior ladies had a convincing practise match win over Hinterland on the weekend with Eliza Trompf, Ruby Hamilton and Sacha Smail standouts. Heaps of improvement shown by plenty as the girls attempt to go three in a row when their season begins on April 23.
Plenty of Junior Grading games happening with even more again this Sunday in what has been a pretty hectic and unorganised schedule to start 2022 with ground unavailability and bloody Covid still rearing it’s ugly head. Good luck to all our juniors this coming weekend prior to the start of the Easter School Holidays.
Remember to google Noosa Tigers website and Facebook for all other information regarding the Noosa Tigers snd see you at the footy on Saturday.
2.00pm Seniors (which will be live streamed through our Tiger TV with commentary)
Go Tigers – Cheers, Pittsy
