‘Tigers storm home but just fall short!’
The Rococo Noosa Tigers have dropped to 6th position on the QAFL ladder after a 6 point loss to Palm Beach on the Gold Coast last Saturday.
The Noosa boys started extremely well with their pressure and hunt for the footy far greater than the Lions going into the first break with a 2 and a half goal lead. For the middle two quarters the clearance work from Palm Beach particularly at centre stoppages became crucial and they were able to control the game for the most part and set up what most thought was a match winning lead. A lack of concentration by the Tigers during a 10 minute period of the 3rd quarter saw Palmys lead extend to just on 4 goals before Noosa again started a mini charge. Controversy played its part on the 3 quarter time siren after a superb set shot on goal from Aaron Wilson was disallowed by the field umpire who, unlike most others watching, called it a no score due to Wilson going over his direct line of mark.
An enthralling final quarter saw the Tigers pushing hard and in the end coming home the better only to squander some simple chances late on goal and repeatedly kicked the ball poorly into the forward line.
Palm Beach now jump the Noosa tigers into 5th position with 3 rounds to play. Of course the Tigers have one less game to play with a bye this weekend. A win at home on August the 13th against Grange will ensure a finals spot for Noosa.
Plenty of contributors got the Tigers going on Saturday with the defence outstanding the entire day. Flagg and Guthrie continued their consistent form continually killing the footy and saving many a goal on the last line of defence. Riley Buntain a standout when moved back to defence where his high marking and spoiling was a constant reminder of what a great player he has been at Noosa for many years. Tyler Stack was in the thick of things on his wing particularly in the first half whilst the grunt of Wallis, Laskey and Templeton was prevalent. Will O’Dwyer’s second half was the reason the Noosa side was still in the hunt as he tore strips through Palm Beach with weight of possession and clever decision making. Big Bussey battled hard as did Jono Freeman up forward or in the ruck however in the end Palmy were just that little bit more composed with the footy and got over the line.

Round 15 Saturday July 30th 4.45pm
The Noosa Tigers Women travelled down the highway to play Sandgate at Lemke Road for the 2nd time this season. With their last encounter being a tight tussle, the girls were determined to showcase their improvement and come out firing.
Well come out firing they did, with dangerous midfielder Keana Welsh (Hop) setting the tone with a brilliant first goal. Whilst Sandgate answered quickly, they just were no match for the Noosa Tigers who followed with another 5 consecutive goals in what was an emphatic opening stanza.
Whilst Sandgate brought the pressure for the rest of the game, Noosa were just too strong across the board. Their ever-stoic backline stopped anything that came their way, with Madi Trompf and Amelia Monk thwarting any effort Sandgate made in their forward half, leaving Sandgate with just the single goal for the game.
Captain Keirra Trompf simply dominated in the ruck all night, also booting two goals in an inspiring Best on Ground performance. Eliza Trompf (Chip) continued to make her presence felt, kicking 2 goals and competing fearlessly all night. Andi Partridge (Rocket) and Dani Bishop-Kinlyside (Doggy) were both just lethal in front of goal, ending up with 3 and 4 goals respectively.
The final quarter rounded off what was an impressive team performance right across the board, finishing with an 84-point victory. The Noosa Tigers head down the highway again this Saturday 5th August to take on the Mayne Tigers at Enoggera Park at 4.45pm, looking to keep their momentum on the rise as they blaze towards finals.
Junior Update weekend 29-31 July 2022
U17 Girls Noosa vs Wilston Grange
The Tigers 17s girls were determined to put a disappointing result last week behind them. On Sunday, in front of a raucous home crowd, they brought everything they had against 4th placed Wilston Grange. The courage & application from our girls, from the youngest to the oldest was outstanding. The girls deserved a better result than a 19-7 defeat, but that’s footy. A big Tigers farewell to our skipper Ella Redaway who played her last game with the Tigers after 7 years.
Under 13 Noosa Blue Girls vs North Shore
Noosa Blue Girls played North Shore at home on Sunday morning and were up against an opposition that really pushed them to the line the last time they met. The ladder positions of 3rd vs 8th was no indication of what was ahead. North Shore with their season on the line was first to the ball and out tackled and pressured the Blues over 3 quarters to run out convincing winners by 34points. Often the best learnt lessons are from our losses. The mental side of footy is so important; coming into a game with too many distractions before the first bounce effects team performance and in addition can be dangerous in a contact sport such as AFL. This Sunday is our last home and away game against the Boomers. Supporters and spectators alike, look forward to the Blues putting their learnings into practice with a strong performance in readiness to what will be a magnificent final series with both Noosa Under 13 teams featuring.
Raffi Baviello, Sierra Croad, Mia Orwin and Chloe Somoana
U13 Girls Noosa Red vs Kawana
On Friday night under lights the U13 Red girls got back to their devastating best making light work of a determined Kawana team. A true team effort with all players contributing to the win which has secured a minor premiership for the girls. Ayla Airdrie, Mikayla Davis and Raquel Frangos- Scanlan took home awards in what was as already mentioned, a fabulous team effort.
U12 Div 2 Noosa vs Caloundra
Played Caloundra away and after really lifting the tempo at training the boys came out firing on all cylinders, dominating the centre clearances from the opening bounce and using the ball well all over the ground. They played with a lot of aggression which was a real focus and we had winners all over the park. Game style and connection really coming together at the right time – well done Lads
U12 Div 3 Noosa vs Coolum
Our team stepped it up yesterday playing 4 excellent quarters of football in perfect conditions at home. The team have been training hard and this showed in their game. Great team effort!
Under 14 Div 2 Noosa vs Pomona/Gympie
An impressive 84-point win for our U14 boys today to cement their position at the top of the ladder ahead of the final’s series. A special mention to the four Tigers who helped the Gympie side on field today, playing hard for the opposition and showing integrity and respect for both sides. The new AFL guidelines saw our boys changing up positions throughout the entire second half, giving our backliners the opportunity to show off their goal kicking skills. Well done Tigers!
Footy4Fun – U8/U10
A big thank you to Hunter Walker. After spending hours on the market gate, he came across to umpire three Footy4fun games before coaching his beloved U14 team. His team huddled around him after the game singing the theme song. Hunter then helped me pack up and sweep the changerooms before heading down the Hastings Street to treat himself with a well-deserved yogurt from Yo-Chi. Looks Yum!
This coming Saturday we have an Inclusion match – Noosa vs Moorooka starting at 12.00pm at Noosa.
This is last home game, and training will continue until end August when season finishes.
In regards to National Carnival, Noosa may have approximately 7 out of the 16 players selected, this takes place in Early November in the Barossa Valley to tie in with National Disability week. We will announce team on 3/9/22 so it would be great to get around our team this Saturday.
Cheers – Rob
