The Rococoâ€™s Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers have come away with a more than satisfying 52 point victory over a very desperate and hungry Coorparoo last Saturday in Brisbane. Not everything went the way of the top of the table Tigers as Coorparoo through the â€˜kitchen sinkâ€™ at them for the first three quarters. Their pressure all over the ground was worrying the more fancied Tigers and at the last break it was the Noosa side by just 8 points.
Up until that stage the back six had been superb with skipper Laskey instrumental and Ryley Buntain and Harry Maher continuing their strong reign of form. The Tigers were down to no one on the bench so rotations in the final stanza were nonexistent. What was going to happen in the last was anyoneâ€™s guess.
Low and behold, on came the onslaught as the Noosa boys banged on 8 last quarter goals in just a sublime performance to run out 52 point winners and put an end to any possible upset that may have been on the cards. Coach Adam Bovalino saying â€˜Iâ€™ll be honest I was a little nervous heading into the last quarter but the boys were just awesome. Itâ€™s the sign of a really good side to be able to put the foot down under pressure and finish like that. Coorparoo were really tough today and we are just stoked to go into the week off a game and percentage clear on top.â€™
Footy manager Mitch Woods went into the centre and played his part in the victory whilst young Angus Smyth was a standout across half back.
Club veterans and champions Peter Trompf and Caleb Isles had their own influence in the contest in what was just a really solid win. No game this week however we still have a luncheon at the club with Peter Moody (Black Caviar trainer) and Anthony Mithen (sports broadcaster) entertaining us for three hours from 1:00pm till 4:00pm and then up to the surf club by courtesy bus to finish what should be a great day!
A very big thank you to all those who came down and supported Oggyâ€™s under 16 boys who lost narrowly to Coolum in what was a cracking game at Noosa last Sunday. The future looks more than bright and to see so many senior players and coaches and nearly all of the under 17 girls at the game just proves as a club we are in a really good position.
Go Tigers! Pittsy

The Reserves remain undefeated getting over Coorparoo by 48 points in Brisbane. Hayden Brock was the destroyer up forward with 6 majors and he was well supported by Bence, Kenny and Evans.
In what was a really high standard game Darcy Oâ€™Sullivan, Ryan Torrance and Rhys Tarling were racking up possessions in the midfield battle. The backline was great again holding Coorparoo to just 9 goals in perfect conditions with co-captains Hendrie and James leading the way.
Veterans Zac Smith and Nathan Winter were pivotal in Noosaâ€™s swift ball movement. Comeback kid Jason Boydle was prominent in the ruck giving the Noosa midfield great supply. With Noosaâ€™s young guns improving with every game we are well positioned for the back half of the year.
