A huge crowd turned out at Artie Smith to watch the Tiger’s unveil their 3 Premiership flags, and whilst things didn’t go quite to plan for the men, you couldn’t question their commitment which is all anyone can ask for.
With a couple of key players unavailable and 8 players making their debut, I have to admit I was a little concerned, however as always the girls didn’t disappoint, proving too strong for North’s in a fairly dominant display.
In 1st Grade, the boys certainly had their chances and whilst North’s have picked up some handy players, poor delivery into our forward line and a couple 50 metre penalties probably cost the Tiger’s a chance to start their season with a bang.
Still it was a good effort and if we continue to work hard, we showed enough today to suggest we are going to be more than competitive in our return to Premier League. Also a special thanks to everyone for their efforts on the sidelines and in the canteen, on what was a very busy day.
