Tiger Talk June 27, 2022

By June 28, 2022No Comments4 min read

Gee – what a last month for the Noosa Tigers! I reckon the bye could not have come quickly enough after the Rococo Noosa Tigers lost their fourth straight match, this time to cellar dwellers Sherwood who picked up their maiden victory for the year!

The Brisbane Magpies jumped the Tigers early to set up a commanding lead and whilst post quarter time the Noosa boys were able to claw back a fair chunk of an almost 10 goal lead, Sherwood were able to hang on and eventually win by 17 points, putting the Noosa Tigers back to 6th on the QAFL ladder with a massive tussle for a finals position between 3 or 4 teams over the last 6 rounds.

Connor McDonald again was a standout for the visitors with his 3rd straight best on ground performance in a losing side. The super fit running ruck come ruck rover is having a ripping season after once again dominating in the summer season up in Darwin.

Skipper Aaron Laskey was in everything as usual to be among the Tigers best once again whilst the two Toms, Baulch and Templeton tried everything they could to spark the tigers into action. Aaron Wilson again in the thick of the action having had a really consistent month also.

The Rococo Noosa Tigers are hanging onto 6th position where a top 6 finals series is preferred so will obviously use the break to reset and get back players of the ilk of Rodgers, Fitzpatrick and Wallis back into the side and get rid of any of the flu like symptoms that seemed to have gone through the club (and I’m sure lots of other clubs also) the past fortnight!

Senior Womens Report with Keirra

Composure, protect and accountability. They are the the main points Coach Pete wanted the women to focus on. Two undefeated teams went head to head on Saturday afternoon in a hard fought battle, unfortunately the Tigers came out second best. 

It was a challenging game with Pine Rivers winning only by 11 points. Keirra Massoud, Dani and Lauren let up forward kicking goals to put Noosa in front leading into the last quarter however some free kicks given to Pine allowed them back into the game. Eliza worked hard in the ruck all day winning most taps. Our backline was under pressure particularly in the fourth quarter trying to maintain the lead.

Onwards and upwards for the women as they now refocus and look towards the back end of the season. Some girls coming back from injury and sickness will be a welcomed addition as we start thinking about our finals campaign.
