A week off for the Rococo Noosa Tigers with even the Thursday night training session bypassed after a pretty gruelling for five rounds. The Noosa Boys sit 6th on the QAFL ladder after 5 rounds with the highlight of the opening few rounds obviously the magnificent win over Aspley in round 2. Even the performance against Broadbeach in round one was more than memorable.

Fantastic crowds have flocked to watch the New look Tigers under the tutelage of legendary Ex-Ainslie coach Chris Rourke who has brought a new professionalism and positive manner around the football department. The Tigers under Football Director, Ben Collins, recruited accordingly after a winless 2021 however all in the inner sanctum know that there’s heaps more hard work to go yet.

Starting with 2019 QAFL Premiers Surfers Paradise on the Vegas strip this Saturday, with the main game starting at 1 pm.  The Rococo Noosa Tigers should be strengthened by the return of Intimidation unit Bussey, local Mav Pettigrove, former Club Champion Mitch Woods and hard as nails defender Charlie Bance. Surfers too having a weekend off after their Mt Gravatt fixture was called off due to poor ground condition in Brisbane last Saturday. Its likely the Tigers will be without champion key defender Riley Buntain who spilt webbing in his hand against Sherwood a fortnight ago. Buntain up until then had just been devastating in defence with his ‘take on the game at all cost’ and timely spoiling technique. Clearly the standout player among the opening 5 rounds, Josh Wallis and partner in crime, Tommy Templeton have been outstanding in the middle with locals Laskey and Fitzpatrick prevalent as usual playing a variety of roles. Been super impressed also by the form of Lachy Flagg in defence and the busyness of small forward Ethan Johnston. The work rate of ruckman Connor McDonald also noted.

Reserves 11 am
Seniors 1 pm
Colts 3.30 pm
Senior Women 4.15pm@Jindalee

Good luck to all those wearing the Noosa Tigers jumper this weekend with our Youth and Junior grades all up and going!

Go Tigers – Cheers, Pittsy
