Well almost the perfect start for the Rococo Noosa Tigers on the Goldy last weekend with the Colts winning a thriller, the Ressies winning a classic game of Reserve Grade footy and our Seniors going down in a closely fought battle by 3 goals.

To be honest, even barring our Seniors getting beaten, it was just a great day at the footy with a heap of the Noosa contingent making their way to Broadbeach. A terrific set up and their hospitality spot on!

As I have mentioned many times over the journey, the performance of our Senior team is what we are judged by and all of the Tger faithful were pretty proud and happy with what they saw on Saturday. Only for a lapse late in the game were the spoils taken away from the newly formed Noosa side against the defending premiers.

The pressure all game was immense, played at a frantic pace with many a contested stoppage. Never once did the Tigers look out of their depth unlike in 2021, when Broadbeach belted Noosa at home by 18 goals.

Big key forwards Freeman and Bussey looked damaging at times booting 3 apiece whilst small forwards Odwyer and Johnston were forever dangerous and impacted with 2 goals apiece.

Templeton battled manfully all day in the middle of the ground with McDonald also combatant the entire day. Rodger was good in patches as was Wallis and Fitzpatrick whilst in defence Buntain and Arnold were terrific all day. Angus Smyth and Charlie Bance also worthy of a mention in a game where it was a very even spread of high pressure effort across the board.

However it doesn’t get any easier this Saturday as the Rococo Noosa Tigers take on ex VFL club Aspley at Weyba Road coming off a convincing win over Wilston Grange in Brisbane last week. This game should not be missed and I’m certain a huge Noosa crowd will be in attendance to see the much improved Tigers under heralded head coach Chris Rourke back in their home town.
