The Rococo’s Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers remain on top of the Hart Sports Division 1 Ladder after a solid seven goal victory over Aspley in Brisbane last Saturday. Noosa have now played everyone within the competition dropping only the one game to Maroochydore by a couple of points. On a beautiful day for football and on a ground that had obviously not had the rain our Weyba rd oval has, the Tigers were able to put the Hornets away in the first half despite the opposition putting players behind the ball to restrict scoring.

Isaac McCrimmon was outstanding for the victors in what has been a really consistent year for the skilful Tasmanian. His tenacity and poise to continually win one on one contests and rebound in the back half has been a highlight all year. Smooth moving on-baller Jai Fitzpatrick put in another blinder and would be fairing well in both club and league best and fairest counts at the half way stage of the year. Jayden Holt was once again a key playmaker for the Tigers and is another player who has enjoyed an uninterrupted pre season with his footy really doing the talking. Footy manager Mitch Woods (who so often seems to go unnoticed) is simply having a superb season as he racked up 27 touches on his wing to again be one of the Tigers best. Down back skipper Aaron Laskey was fantastic from start to finish with his constant back up and penetrating disposal into the forward line a highlight of the day. Harry Maher continues his good run of form with a solid and reliable display across half back whilst young playmaker Will O’Dwyer bagged three majors in another eye catching display by the super impressive teenager. 

Senior coach Adam Bovalino was happy stating ‘we are glad just to go down there, play against a defensive mindset in an atmosphere with no bite, take the four points on offer and come home.’

This Saturday the Rococo’s Bar and Bistro Tigers are away again as they play Coorparoo in Brisbane before having the bye the following week.

Speaking of the bye we are still hosting a President’s Luncheon (June 1st from 1 – 4 pm) where our special guest will be Black Caviar horse trainer Peter Moody and media broadcaster Anthony Mithen. Tickets are selling very quickly so don’t miss out will be a ripping day!

Good luck to all Tiger junior teams that take the field this weekend and I’ll see you all at the footy

Go Tigers! Cheers, Pittsy

RESERVES MATCH REPORT

Aspley Hornets: 4.2 – 26

Noosa AFC: 9.11 – 65

Goal Kickers: H. Brock 5, R. Evans 2, D. Bence 2
Best Players: D. O’Sullivan, R. Torrance, H. Brock, C. Bowes, N. Evans

Saturday saw the Reserves head down the Bruce again. Aspley came ready to play and started well. To our boy’s credit and a super effort from the boys down back, we grouped together for a great win. Ryan Torrance and Sam Friend were very impressive with Hayden Brock kicking a nice bag down forward. Evans chipped in with a couple as did Bence, who also managed to flog a sausage roll off Dylan Evans. Good work boys, go Tigers.
