‘Tigers back on the Winners list’

The Rococo Noosa Tigers have awoken from a 4 game losing streak to completely dominate Brisbane outfit Mt Gravatt at Weyba Road last Saturday.In front of a more than healthy home town crowd also celebrating the ‘Move for Lex‘ was the slick Tigers whose transition and overall connection was just far superior than their tenacious opponents.

The 16 goal victory was set up by the Tigers midfield dominance and the presence of gun forward Aaron Wilson who ended up booting 5 goals for the afternoon.

Connor McDonald again was superb in the centre as ruckman but more do with his clearance work along with Tommy Templeton who was dominant throughout but particularly in the first half when the game was there to be won.

Other than the back half of the third quarter where the deviant Vultures had some influence in general play the Noosa boys were always in control.
Charlie Bowes had a terrific 4 quarter game in the back half racking up over 30 touches whilst Ben Guthrie and Lachy Flagg shut down anything that come there way.

Wingmen Tyler Stack and Tom Baulch had total field days both collecting well over 30 touches, setting up several goals and scoring themselves to be both in the best players on the ground.

Stars Jai Fitzpatrick and Josh Wallis were certainly influential also putting their own classy stamp on proceedings when needed, Jai taking one of the Marks of the Year in the second stanza.

Ethan Johnston was as busy as usual up forward as was the returning Seb Rogers whose attack on the ball and finishing also a highlight.

All in all a great team performance from the Rococo Noosa Tigers and a big confidence booster as they hit arch rival Maroochydore at Fishermsns Road this Saturday at 1:00pm. 

The Tigers need to win to stay in 5th position whilst a Roos victory could see them somehow sneak into the 6. Just another local blockbuster! Don’t forget to take a $5 note with you so they let you into the game. Senior Game an early start at 1 pm at Maroochydore. One certainly not to be missed!

The Colts, Reserves and our Senior Women all having terrific wins on a day that really was about Alexa Leary!

The ‘Move for Lex’ function was an outstanding success with some of the most inspirational and motivational speeches heard anywhere that delved deeply into the hearts of the Noosa Community – I can truly say there was not a dry eye in the room, and not a person without a new found passion after.

A massive thank you to all that made the event possible and of course those that supported it. To Russ Leary and family, on behalf of the Noosa Tigers it was a pleasure to host the day and your help with the organising was just amazing! We cannot forget our incredible partners and friends at Rococo.

-The Editor would just like to give a massive shout out to Pittsy at this point, his commitment
to “Move for Lex” & this football club over many years is above and beyond –

Junior and Youth footy back on this weekend as we get closer to the business end of the season!
Good luck to all those representing the Noosa Tigers this weekend!
Go Tigers! – Cheers, Pittsy
